    Hi.

    They are a very young school.

    Note:

    However they are honest about the problems of their accreditation status:

    That is unusual, sad to say, and it is a good sign.

    Martin.

    I assume it is linked to the SBC in some way because they advertise Lifeway.

    The President of the School is Daryl Eldridge, he is the former dean of the school of educational ministries at SWBTS. Dr Eldridge is a great person and a strong, conservative Christian. He is also very forward thinking and forward looking - always one of the first to embrace new technology. I believe that Lifeway is looking at Rockbridge to develop an online seminary program for them. The current SB seminaries have too many $$ invested in brick and mortar. It will be interesting to see what develops up there. I believe that Dr Eldridge is also a close friend of Rick Warren, and that Warren may begin to funnel students to Rockbridge.

    I did not realize the Eldridge connection. Dr. Sam Simmons was close to Warren as well.

    Lifeway would be an interesting connection.
