Gospel Training when and where you need it.

Distinctives

There are many good theological institutions in the UK and parts of Europe already; we praise God for the work that they do.  
However, we are distinctive from existing organisations in three main ways – the blend of these distinctives are what make us a Flexicademy™, a new kind of organisation that offers flexible learning and rigorous training.

Delivery
We offer in-context training where you live, work or minister. Our modern blended-learning techniques train you in partnership with your local church. It’s the quality of residential training at the price of distance-learning courses with the benefits of learning in discussion with peers whilst remaining in your local community. If you’re looking for pure residential theological education, our friends and colleagues at Oak Hill College do this excellently. 

Theology

We stand firmly in the traditions of historic evangelicalism and want God’s word to shape your training and life so that you love Jesus more. Reflecting the missions and values of our parent organisations, Acts 29 and Oak Hill College, we are Reformational, Evangelical, Complementarian and Missional. See Beliefs for more details.

Geography

Crosslands may have started life in the UK, but we don’t want to stop there. We recognise the need for theological education in Europe and beyond into the 10:40 window. We are working hard to establish Crosslands hubs where our students are and in the languages that they speak, so that we might contribute to seeing the cross of Christ reigning over the lands of Europe and the 10:40 window where Jesus is neither named nor known.

Ethos

We want you to experience Crosslands training and resources as part of a community who learn theology together, supporting each other even after their course has finished, closely linked with our wider Acts 29 and Oak Hill networks.

Values

Our passion to see the cross of Christ reigning over these lands and our students crossing-lands for the gospel drives our aims for all our training and resources.  These do not replace our doctrinal beliefs but are statements of how we intend to discharge Christian ministry and interact with you if you study with us.
