It is a pleasure to introduce you to the Global Association of Theological Studies. Our journey began with a Global Education Network meeting at World Evangelism Center in October 2006. Two of our visionary Regional Directors, Rev. Robert K. Rodenbush and Rev. Jerry Richardson had presented a proposal for such a gathering. At the invitation of the Director of Education/AIM, Rev. L. Shirley, an educational representative from each region joined our Regional Directors for three days of meetings to discuss various aspects of improving the way we go about theological training globally. In that get-together the Global Education Committee, Global Association of Theological Studies, and the Global University of Theological Studies were envisioned. They were later approved by the General Director of Global Missions, Rev. Bruce Howell; Planning for Progress and finally the Global Missions Board in February 2007. That was the easy part. Undertaking the global educational advancement program is a gigantic task, and is not accomplished overnight. It is an ongoing process.
