City Vision College

Rescue College has morphed into City Vision College, and is now a part of TechMission. (via) These are all solid people and it's a solid program.

It's an interesting model. Students have to do 90 semester hours of college work somewhere else. Then they do the last 30 semester hours (10 classes) at City Vision.

Hopefully the school will soon develop to the point where they only require students to transfer 60 semester hours (i.e. an AA degree/general studies) into the program and then take 60 hours at City View. That would strengthen their degree considerably, allowing them to add more Bible, theology, and urban context courses to complement their already strong practical ministry focus. Perhaps then they'll be able to add some regional or national accreditation to the DETC (Distance Education and Training Council) accreditation.

What I've liked about Rescue College and continue to like about their current program: the distance ed flexibility, the faculty, their mission-focus, and that they can address a single niche in a creative way.
