2.2 Mini-Terms for College Credit – Oklahoma and Non-Credit Online Option – Oklahoma Program Begins June 18

The Voice of the Martyrs (VOM) and Oklahoma Wesleyan University (OKWU) are again offering the popular residential mini-terms (one-week intensives for three credits) in the Global Studies program. The university developed these mini-terms from its award-winning Persecuted Church Ministries major. These terms provide advanced learning in the areas of Christian persecution and the biblical response to worldwide suffering.

The residential program begins June 18. Tuition for this residence program is $600 total and covers academic credits, housing, books and meals on the campus of OKWU. Each course offers academic-credit transfer options.

Visit the OKWU website to apply or to view mini-term dates and courses offered in 2013-2014. There is also a link to the OKWU classes via the VOM link. Register or view the current online courses offered at the website.

To see non-credit opportunities for free persecution studies from home, visit VOM’s website.
