Asbury Theological Seminary’s office of Global Learning oversees the global learning projects of the seminary. Those programs include the Online (ExL) program and the Global Learning program.
The “big brother” of global education for Asbury is the Online (ExL) program . Online (ExL) was formed first in the minds of Dr. Bob Buckman, Dr. David McKenna, Dr. Leslie Andrews, Dr. Ken Boyd, and then birthed under the leadership of Dr. Maxie Dunnam. All of these saw the future of Asbury as expanding beyond the bricks and mortar of Wilmore, KY. Online Learning (ExL) was still very much in its infancy in the early and mid-‘90s. Yet, these pioneering leaders could see a way of following John Wesley’s lead and making “the world our parish”.
