What are the benefits of CUGN?

General Endorsements:

Dr. Haddon Robinson

"I’ve spent my life in theological education as a president, as a professor. And one of the desires of my heart is that everybody can get a chance to study the Bible in whatever depth they want. And I’ve found a tool that does that. It’s called Christian University GlobalNet. I recommend it to you highly as an educator, as a Christian, and as somebody who wants you to go as deep as you can go in the Word of God."

Former President, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

Dr. Alice Matthews

"I think most of us would agree that the Internet is certainly a mixed bag. There’s a lot on the Internet that we think is pretty bad. But one of the great gifts that the Internet has provided is Christian University GlobalNet. The opportunity to study the Scriptures, to come in on a FastTrax course, or to stay with a long-term study of the Scriptures, all of that is available to you."

Alice Mathews, Ph.D.
Professor Emerita of Educational and Women’s Ministries

Dr. Walter Kaiser

"Christian University GlobalNet is a wonderful way to join the thousands around the globe who are deeply desirous of going deeper into the Scriptures and the teaching truths that our Lord has left us. Not only has it fortified the lives of believers to go on to new heights with their Lord, but it has also been the means by which new service for the Lord can be effected, for after one has experienced the joy of learning about their Lord and his word, the next thing you want to do is to share it with someone else. These courses are uniquely suited to do just that as they provide a new delivery means and rich content. Enjoy yourself and your walk with the Lord up to the hilt by choosing to study with these courses."

Walter C. Kaiser, Jr., Ph.D.

"Christian University GlobalNet is an outstanding way to learn at your own pace and schedule. It brings the best resources I have seen into homes, churches, and classrooms. I highly encourage you to visit the Web site and explore the many great courses that are now available. "

Dr. Larry Crabb

"Whether you are seeking a degree or simply wanting to develop your biblical knowledge and ministry skills, you must investigate CUGN. It has what you need, the program is flexible, and the instructors are among the very finest. But it isn't just that the curriculum and the faculty excel; the courses take a "learning for living" approach that puts practical truth into your hands. I highly recommend the school!"

Former pastor, Moody Memorial Church

Dr. Larry Crabb

"Cornerstone University's Professional & Graduate Studies division has used CUGN certificate programs within its elective offerings since 2009. Because I heard such positive feedback from students, I decided to take the studies for my own spiritual and intellectual growth. I was not disappointed. I greatly enjoyed my time in the Old Testament Studies and soon plan to begin New Testament Survey. While I have Bible college and seminary degrees, I found the content both intellectually stimulating as well as life-changing. In fact, as my husband and I watched the lecture videos and read commentaries, our conversations about the Bible became richer. I highly recommend the courses."

Dr. Linda Haveman
Dean of Academics and Assessment
Professional and Graduate Studies Cornerstone University (Grand Rapids, MI)

"Through the convenient medium of independent study, thousands have been introduced to some of the best theologians, Bible scholars, and Christian leaders in the Western world. No institution could gather on its own campus the corporate quality faculty which appear in the ITS program."
