ISDET or the International Seminary for Distance Education in Theology was born out of a felt need for several things:
The need for a free seminary
The need for quality education
The need for offering these programs via distance education
The need for a seminary without walls
Several scholars, Bible teachers, and people experienced in management got together to sift and sort the needs and thus was born the International Seminary for Distance Education in Theology.
Right from the time this group gathered, it was decided that ISDET would be totally free of tuition and that only a very small entry fees (registration) be charged. It was also decided that this amount should not be more than the cost of a single credit hour of studies in a conventional seminary. Students from developing countries were to be exempted from even this small registration fees. The aim was to bring in a maximum number of students, train them, and see their impact upon the church and the world.
The first step was to ask a group of theologically trained men and women worldwide whether they would serve as faculty members. Not surprisingly, all of them were excited by the idea of giving free education and all of them, without exception, consented to be on the faculty.
Simultaneously we started looking for good articles, reports, and textbooks that we could distribute to our students. Once again, without exception, every author whom we contacted was excited by the idea and permitted us to use their documents as free ISDET textbooks.
Many of the volunteers, meanwhile, helped to create Student Handbooks and other guides, and soon ISDET was here: a theological seminary that offers its programs without fees.
