The Assemblies of God Theological Seminary Center for Islamic Studies will host the Summer Institute for Islamic Studies from June 30 to July 11, 2014. Courses are designed for ministers, missionaries, chaplains and others who live or work with Muslims and would like to take a class in Islamic Studies for credit. A 75 percent discount is offered to those who would like to audit one of the courses.
