The Hybrid Program is a full-time, one-year program for first and second-year students which gives you the experience of on-campus life while still being able to do most of your study at home.
All students will watch the lessons at home via an online learning management system. On a semi-regular basis, students will come together for worship, live teaching, connect groups, review & share time, mission prep, guest speakers and much more. During this time students build relationships that last a lifetime. This program is created for individuals that have career, family or life commitments and it is more convenient for long distance travel.
