Dr. Alan Stoddard is Executive Pastor at Cornerstone Baptist Church in Arlington, Texas, and a member of the Teaching Faculty for Rockbridge Seminary. Recently, he wrote about his Rockbridge Seminary experience on his blog “AStodLive.” Here’s an excerpt:

The face of seminary training has changed. I got connected with an online seminary a few years ago when a friend of mine started www.rockbridgeseminary.org. This is a fully online seminary where students can get quality, relevant equipping that’s affordable and contextual. You don’t have to leave where you serve to get in the educational programs and process. RockbridgeI took the professor orientation and was stunned at the biblical community that was created in our class. I’ve become a social media lover, but the prof class really helped me understand how online learning can actually surpass traditional forms of learning in many ways.
