Facilities On Campus

GATS is the seminary arm of Family of Faith Christian University (FFCU), and courses through GATS are completed online. FFCU is located seven miles north of Shawnee in central Oklahoma. While GATS students are all “distance education” students, the administrative staff members welcome students to visit campus when they are in the area.

Mission Trips

Mission trips are amazing opportunities for training, impartation, and experience. Students are encouraged to go to the Global Awakening website to learn more about the many mission opportunities hosted each year. Students planning to do this are asked to communicate this to faculty members in order to make any needed alterations to assignment due dates. The general rule is that any assignment already indicated in a course syllabus must be completed before the student leaves, while missed examinations will be made up within 1 week of the student’s return.

Orientation & Academic Success

To ensure success as a student in GATS, students complete an Orientation “course” (ORIENT) the week prior to beginning classes. This free “course” includes an introduction to the courseware, to personnel, and to library and research services. Students are requested to complete Academic Success (GENL 1003), a required course, in their first term in order to receive direction on research, writing, and goal setting that will help students transition into a successful pattern of study.

Students with Disabilities

FFCU and GATS are committed to training laborers for the Kingdom of God. We recognize the obligation to meet the needs of all students. If there are special needs, please speak with the Vice-President of Student Affairs in order to ensure these needs are met.


Upon written request and payment of the Transcript Fee, a student may receive an official transcript. The release of transcripts is contingent upon the settlement of financial obligations. Please find the Transcript Request form in Populi.
