Missions Work

Effectively Share the Reason for Our Hope With the World

“The Koran says…” is not a sufficient reason for us to become Muslim. Likewise, “the Bible says…” is, by itself, not a sufficient reason for someone to believe the Gospel. Why should they trust the Bible? Training in apologetics and cross-cultural evangelism is crucial whether your mission field is in a foreign country or across the street. The world is shrinking, and the ability to navigate competing truth claims in our pluralistic society is a necessity in order to effectively engage culture. Are you prepared?

Uniquely Integrated Approach to Christian Thinking

Thoroughly Academic & Practical

On-Campus, Live-Streaming, & Online Classes Available


We highly encourage all who are able to attend courses on campus and experience the personal in-class and outside-of-class interactions with both students and professors. For those who cannot attend on campus, we offer a live-streaming option which allows you to still interact in realtime with the class. In addition, most courses are also offered via asynchronous online learning. Our classes or normally in the evenings, and nearly every degree can be completed totally online, meaning you can further your education while continuing to work in your ministry area.


Whether you are interested in a full degree program or simply want to add to your toolkit, SES can help you be equipped. Nearly all degrees can be completed totally online. Note that our certificates are for-credit classes that can be rolled into a degree program at a later date if desired.

It is certainly true that in many contexts you get what you pay for. At SES, however, the value of your education will far outweigh the actual costs you pay. Many Christian institutions can cost nearly $2,000 per course for a typical master’s-level education. We provide even more value by offering a unique, and superior, integrated approach to classical Christian thinking at a fraction of the cost.









Prices are per credit hour. Approx. $175 of fees may apply.
