Concerns regarding the potential for delivering theological education internationally and in an online format have been raised. The scarce research in this area points to the need for further investigation. The current study involves the use of a qualitative research design to explore experienced educators’ perceptions on the need, sustainability, and impact of delivering theological content globally through online courses. The findings from educator interviews demonstrate the need for the development of international partnerships and the delivery of culturally relevant online theological courses in ways that allow students around the globe to gain access to theological training in modes that work for them.
