Distance Education

You don't have to pack your bags and come to Daytona Beach...

You can earn your Biblical Studies diploma from right where you are!


Pursuing a biblical education is possible no matter where you are.  Your distance and your busy schedule are two very real obstacles that may be hindering you from doing what the Lord is prompting you to do - pursue a biblical education at CrossRoads!

CrossRoads Bible Institute can help!


We want you to become a better servant in the church and leader in your life.  Maybe your goal is to be better prepared for full-time ministry.  Personal interaction between fellow students and instructors, as well as in-house ministry training here in Daytona Beach, Florida, are essential in the Biblical Studies program of CrossRoads.

However, although CrossRoads believes these are very important, we offer a Distance Education program that is available online.  This affords you, the student, the opportunity to stay home, stay involved in your ministry, and complete courses online at your own pace!

All you need is a working computer with Internet access.  By investing a few hours each week, you can complete the Biblical Studies program.  You can even choose to concentrate on a particular course of study within the Biblical Studies program.

Within the Bilbical Studies program there are offerings ranging from:

  • An emphasis in Pastoral Ministry.
  • An emphasis in Biblical Counseling.
  • An emphasis in General Church Ministry.
  • An emphasis in Children's, Youth, and Christian Education ministries.
  • An emphasis in Missions.

You can study and work from your favorite chair or virtually anywhere!

Who can take online courses?

The Distance Education program is available to those who live 20 or more miles away from the Bible Institute.  We have had many inquires from individuals from other states and even other countires that want to participate in CrossRoads Bible Institute.  Now they can!  The goal is to offer a quality Biblical Sutdies education worldwide to those who desire one.

Students who live within 20 miles of the campus can also participate in the Distance Education program by completing up to 25% of their 30 credit hours online.

What do I get when I take online courses?

When you enroll in CrossRoads Distance Education (DE) courses, you will have total access to video and audio recorded class sessions, class notes, and coursework.  You will also have the ability to converse with your instructor.

We even have a link on the Bible Institute Web site that will take you to the home page of CrossRoads Ministries where you can be encouraged by hearing (or watching) the latest sermons preached.

CrossRoads is the dynamic home church of CrossRoads Bible Institute where over 1,000 people attend services each Sunday morning, and thousands listen and watch worldwide!

What does it cost?

The cost of taking Distance Education courses is the same as residential courses - strictly on a love offering basis.  If the courses have been a blessing to you and have aided in your spiritual growth and/or preparation for the ministry, the biblical and right thing to do is to give financially to support CrossRoads.

How do I apply?

Please complete the application form and submit it electronically right from this Web site!
