World Class Training Partnership
Through the synergistic efforts of Dr. Leonard Sweet, Dr. Kenneth C. Ulmer and Dr. James O. Davis, the Global Church Network has forged a global relationship through the Global Church Divinity School. It is now possible for you to obtain the finest teaching while continuing part-time or full-time in ministry. You do not have to stop what you are doing, relocate to a new city, or incur astronomical debt in order to receive high-level ministry training that will help you succeed in fulfilling your divine destiny.
Through the GCDS, you have the opportunity to personally and professionally achieve many dynamic credentialing levels in seven powerful ministry tracks. These highly recognized, credentialing achievements are awarded to Christian leaders, who stair-step through the Novice, Apprentice, Specialist, Docent, Maven, Master and Mentor learning levels of understanding and application. The crowning credential, Omega, is only issued after all the ministry tracks have been fully completed.
Dr. Elmer Towns, Cofounder of Liberty University has made available the Elmer Towns Legacy Library for all Global Church Divinity School Members. He serves as the GCDS Dean. The Elmer Towns Legacy Library consists of more than 1 terabyte of ministry resources valued at more than $15,000.
