Equipping the next generation

At Lawton First Assembly, we are committed to raising up the next generation of leaders. That’s why we launched the LFA College of Leadership—an extension site of Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU)—right here at LFA!


LFA College of Leadership offers college-age students the best of both worlds: a university degree which is a fusion of collegiate learning and hands-on ministry/leadership experience. Through LFA College of Leadership, you will be set up for a life of purpose and impact. Not only can you earn a university degree from SAGU—a private institution—but you will also learn under some of the top leaders LFA has to offer. If you are a high school or college student looking for a place to encourage, challenge, and celebrate you, then LFA College of Leadership is for you!


LFA College of Leadership will allow you as a student to experience exponential growth in ministry and leadership while completing a degree (associate/bachelor/graduate) from SAGU. By the way, SAGU is a nationally acclaimed, fully accredited Christian university. You will benefit from professional studies and hands-on ministry training and have the most fun while doing it all. And the best part is, you will pay significantly lower tuition rates—50% less.


Academic tracks can be tailored to your degree pursuit according to the many course offerings of SAGU. Church leadership tracks include children and family, students, worship/production, pastoral, and organizational leadership. Our LFA facility is equipped with a comfortable student lounge—a place to study and experience student life.

Not a student? 

If you are an adult beyond college-age students who have recently graduated from high school, you can also take advantage of the extension site enrollment with half price tuition! You will be able to take courses and pursue a degree from SAGU. 


The day-to-day (on site at LFA) hands-on leadership and ministry training is available for college-age students only. However, adults older than college age have opportunity to still gain credit hours through an internship at LFA customized to his/her schedule/availability. Simply email us, and we will set up an appointment to meet with you!
