Southwestern Assemblies of God University
Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) is a Bible-based institution for theological and professional studies. It is rooted in the great commission of Jesus Christ to "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation" and to "make disciples of all nations... teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you" , which is the primary emphasis of Southwestern’s parent body, the General Council of the Assemblies of God. The purpose of Southwestern Assemblies of God University is to prepare undergraduate and graduate students spiritually, academically, professionally, and cross culturally so as to successfully fill evangelistic, missionary and church ministry roles and to provide quality educational and professional Christian service wherever needed throughout the world.
Currently the de Freitas' are assigned to a four year term at SAGU as missionaries-in-residence. They are teaching intercultural Studies and lead the activities of the missions department. Please note that the de Freitas' do not receive a salary from the University, but rather they are still funded and sustained by individuals and churches that support our ministry through our missionary account.
