Beginning August 2020 students can attend Ethnos360 Bible Institute Online, and receive the same high-caliber education that our resident students receive. We have worked hard to instill our core values of Bible, Missions, and Discipleship into a program that was completely redesigned from the ground up to function around an online platform. Students will watch studio quality videos filmed by the very faculty and missionaries that are teaching at our on-campus locations, and complete course work that is uniquely tailored to a digital format.

Join Our Online Certificate Track

In addition to our full Online Program, Ethnos360 is also offering a 30 credit hour certificate program. This is a program that is 100% online, and follows the same teaching approach as our physical campus by teaching the Bible chronologically from Creation to the New Creation. This program can be completed in one year for full-time students, or may be taken at a slower pace for those whose schedules prevent the full-time approach. We are confident that upon completion of this program you will have a greater understanding of who God is, His heart for the world, and how He planned a way in eternity past to redeem man so that we can spend eternity future reigning with Him.
