1. Comprehensive & Practical
We believe that the first priority should be the school's doctrinal position and the emphasis of the curriculum and courses. LCU believes in the whole counsel of God's Word. We also believe that you cannot share what you don't have, so every believer should be spiritually equipped to walk in victory in their own life before entering into ministry to others.
Our program teaches you to walk by faith and receive the Lord's blessing in every area of your own personal life. This includes exercising faith to live a life of Christ-like character, having peace in your home, receiving divine healing and health for your own body, and divine prosperity to accomplish the work that God has called you to. Having a good working knowledge of the New Testament and the benefits of being a believer are foundational prerequisites for a personal life of victory. After this solid foundation for ministering to others is laid, you may develop in special areas of ministry as you feel called by the Lord.
We firmly believe that the Lord Jesus has greatly promoted the University and given us rapid success because of the strength and anointing on the program of study. He knows what the Body of Christ needs in ministry training in today's world, and we feel extremely blessed to be one of His instruments of that training.
2. Available & Convenient
A ministry education and the corresponding degrees associated with that education are now available to anyone, anywhere in the world through Life Christian University. Our new online student program allows you to study at home, at your own pace without having to relocate your family to a traditional university, Bible college or seminary. Most believers who sense the call of God on their lives to do something more for the Kingdom, or to enter into full time ministry, do not have the luxury of interrupting their lives and the lives of their family in order to pursue that call in the old-fashioned, traditional way. LCU has removed all of those obstacles.
3. Superior Quality
Online students of LCU receive video lectures from the faculty of the Main Campus in Tampa, Florida. With hundreds of years of ministry experience between them, the Main Campus faculty make up some of the most anointed and gifted ministers that you will ever hear.
LCU's President and Vice-President, Dr. Douglas Wingate and Dr. Daniel Coflin, have been friends for over 52 years. They have been working together in ministry higher education for over 17 of those years. Dr. George Brooks and Rev. Linda Brooks were Dr. Wingate's first spiritual mentors over 37 years ago. All of the rest of the faculty have very close relationships with one another. As a team, the faculty demonstrate the true New Testament model of ministry: no competition or envy, but a true atmosphere of unity and honor.
Our tuition is among the most reasonable — indeed inexpensive — in the world. The objective of the university is to provide the highest-quality spiritual education possible at the most affordable price. This low-cost, pay-as-you-go policy (pay for each course as you take it) has helped thousands of our graduates enter into ministry without the lingering and oppressive financial burden of college debt.
5. Main Campus Support
Each student is assigned an advisor to walk him/her through the enrollment process, the completion of courses and the receiving of degrees. Each student advisor is a graduate of LCU and is extremely capable regarding academic advice and spiritual counsel. Your advisor will pray for you every day and assist you from beginning to end, even if your academic goal is a Ph.D.
6. Name Recognition & Prestige
LCU is rapidly becoming known as one of the premiere ministry universities in the world. With its quality program, miraculous growth rate and great number of prominent and distinguished ministers who have chosen LCU for recognition of their academic work, a degree from LCU is one of the most prestigious degrees available.
