Southeastern University (Lakeland, FL) partners with Puyallup Foursquare Church to host an instructional site on the church campus. Through this unique partnership, students in the Foursquare Ministry Institute are able to enroll in degree programs through the university, while also participating in hands-on ministry experience at Puyallup Foursquare.
Southeastern offers a variety of degree programs and financial aid opportunities. For more information, please visit the university's website.
Students will enroll in a full course load every semester, putting them on track to earn their associate’s degree in two years or bachelor’s degree in four years. Students with previous college credits will have the opportunity to pursue a master’s degree as well. Students will have flexibility in their schedules, allowing them to engage and learn in a multitude of ways. Through SEU, students will receive academic credit in traditional classrooms, online classes, and ministry practicum based on their work in the different departments at Puyallup Foursquare Church. The flexibility in this schedule will teach students time management skills and allow them to maintain a part-time job outside of the internship.
