Distance Education

The reality is that sometimes life is busy and prioritizing school can become difficult. Distance Education (DE) is a great solution for students wanting to take their college classes with a margin of flexibility.

All our core biblical and theological classes are offered through DE. Local students also have the option of blending campus classes with DE classes in order to facilitate their personal schedules. Distance education isn’t semestered like campus courses; DE students have six months to complete each class, which means you work at your own pace. Study wherever and whenever you want.

"I am thankful every day for that equipping!"

I love PLBC! Their Distance Education allowed for me to study while being in ministry. Each course I took got to be considered in the daily activities and opportunities of pastoring. The counselling program offered a wealth of tools for my pastoral ministry toolbox and I am thankful every day for that equipping! The teachers and leaders at PLBC were supportive and encouraging of my life and ministry and I enjoyed the personal connection with them.
