Aidan University along with Life Changing University is a distance education school of theology and ministry. Recognizing that it is not practical for all who are called to ministry to pack up their families and leave their homes or places of ministry to attend a conventional “brick and mortar” school, Life Changing U brings quality, affordable and accessible ministry and theological training where students live and work.

All of our programs are custom made with the student’s needs and interests in mind. We recognize that most students do not fit into a “cookie cutter” academic program so we take great pains to provide our students with the courses that will best prepare them for what the Lord has called them to do. Degree programs are custom made for students in urban, suburban, rural and international environments.

Counseling Degrees

Our concept of distance education, which was once considered impractical, has now been adopted by leading institutions of higher education as a standard for training for ministry and non-ministry preparation.

Our leadership, faculty, staff and Program Directors/Mentors are not disconnected from the pulpit or local church pressures of this modern world. Our faculty is endowed with a vast treasure of ministry experience and strong academic credentials.

We currently offer degrees in Applied Theology, Biblical Studies, Christian Counseling, Christian Education, Leadership and Organization, Theology, and Theological Studies. All of our programs are offered from the Associates to the Doctoral level.

Life Changing U provides a unique opportunity for students to prepare themselves academically, professionally, and spiritually to serve God in the ministry & professions to which they have been called. As an independent, educational ministry that is thoroughly Biblical in its philosophy of education, LCU is a servant to both the local church and the individual student; providing curriculum,   consultation, and direction for the accomplishment of his/her educational goal.

Our Statement of Faith reflects the solidarity and unity of the broad spectrum of Christian ministry in our world. We wholly endorse the authority and autonomy of the local church and therefore, will not interfere with the local church’s life, its discipline, or its doctrinal emphasis.
