    In Fall 2012, Crossroads' Compass Adult Studies began offering
    Counseling Degree classes both onsite AND online.


MICHELLE said, “I am a financial advisor and business owner, but with my clients, it is more about emotion than about money.”  We said, “We can get you ready for that.”  We did, and she graduated from the Counseling program, using her learned skills, and loving it.

PAUL said, “I am a retired executive, feeling led to go to central China and start a Christian school, but I have no experience with the Bible or ministry.”  We said, “We can get you ready for that.”  We did, and Paul and his wife are one year into the ministry, still taking classes online from China, and loving it.

SUSAN said, “I am a pastor’s wife, always involved in ministry but feeling unprepared as I serve.”  We said, “We can help you get ready for that.”  We did, and she completed a Bible Certificate and now more confidently serving in local church ministry, and loving it.

STAN said, “I am a manager and need a better understanding of business.”  We said, “We can get you ready for that.”  We did, completing his bachelor degree in Business in Compass and completed an MBA online, now a supervisor of his entire department, and loving it.

TONY said, “I am a spokesperson for a local company, constantly in the public media, and want to learn how to write better.”  We said, “We can get you ready for that.”  We did, he took classes in Communications and Business, continues in his position, and loving it.

These are actual students from our Compass Adult Studies programs who have taken one of several directions of learning – Counseling degree, Ministry degree, Business Administration degree, Bible Certificate, or a mix...

There are many good institutions and programs available, but what is unique about Compass programs:

  • We pay attention to get you ready for what you do best, so you too can say, “I love this.”
  • You know us, we know you – smaller classes, flexible schedules, experts in class and behind the scenes.
  • 100 years of experience; yes, that kind of track record matters in the quality and scope of learning.
  • Solid commitment to character-based and Christian worldview in all areas of life and learning.

So, if you are feeling the “next” part of life coming on - the next level, the next season, the next change of your learning and experience…  We know what you want: you are “here”, you want to be “there” - we can get you ready for that.  Starting today.
