Partnering Up to Extend Our Reach

Beginning in August of 2016, Johnson University ExtendEd will offer affordable, localized business and ministry degrees at partner locations around the country. Partners include Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, Kentucky; Christ’s Church of the Valley in Phoenix, Arizona; Knoxville Interdenominational Bible Institute in Knoxville, Tennessee; and Connection Pointe Christian Church, Greenwood Christian Church, Indian Creek Christian Church, Park Chapel Christian Church, Plainfield Christian Church, and White River Christian Church in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The ExtendEd Adult Evening program is available in Indianapolis, Louisville, and Knoxville and is designed for working adults who want to complete a bachelor’s degree. The small, faith-based programs are designed to provide meaningful learning opportunities and flexible delivery methods combining on-site classes, online components, and hands-on experiences in churches and other organizations. There are several Adult Evening options including bachelor’s degrees in Ministry Leadership and Pastoral Care & Counseling.  

The ExtendEd Residency program is an immersive experience currently available in Indianapolis and Phoenix with other cities being considered for launch in 2017. Over the course of the program, students at both the graduate and undergraduate levels are mentored by Johnson University faculty and staff and get hands-on experience in local partner churches through a 9-month apprenticeship. Interested students can earn either a bachelor’s or master’s degree in Strategic Ministry.

The new Johnson University ExtendEd brand will further leverage Johnson University’s experience and relationships in pursuit of its mission “…to extend the kingdom of God among all nations." For more information about Johnson University ExtendEd, visit or contact
