A REFRESHING TIME TO STUDY, PRAY, AND FOCUS ON YOUR MINISTRY
All students coming to Knox from out of town, please know that Fort Lauderdale Airport (FLL) is the nearest airport to the seminary.
PASTORS AND DOCTOR OF MINISTRY STUDENTS
Experience time away to pray, study, and focus on the future of your ministry during one-week intensive sessions offered throughout the year here in Fort Lauderdale. Whether you are studying with us online or on-campus, you will sit under world-class faculty.
Master-level students must obtain written permission from the academic dean before registering for Doctor of Ministry courses.
Hybrid courses and one-week intensives count towards residential credit hours. This is particularly beneficial for MDiv students who must meet the required 30 residential credit hours for their degree.
To optimize a student’s course experience and success, Knox recommends that all students register for master- and doctoral-level classes at least one month in advance. Students will then receive the syllabus that outlines reading requirements and course expectations. There is a substantial amount of pre-course reading and preparation for these one-week intensive courses so it is suggested that a student register as early as possible.
