The Pillsbury College & Seminary, established in 1991 by the FreeWay Foundation (formerly Christian Civic Foundation), operates as a Christian school, which was granted "exempt institution" status by the Missouri Coordinating Board for Higher Education on August 19, 1991. It is a flexible, personalized, distance-learning alternative to traditional graduate education. The
College is targeted at mid-career ministers who have a heart for helping hurting people. We equip them to teach and apply practical spiritual principles and positive Biblical life skills.
Founded in 1991, Pillsbury is owned, controlled, and operated by FreeWay Foundation (formerly Christian Civic Foundation, which was chartered originally in 1890).
The Pillsbury College and Seminary allows mature, self-motivated professionals to earn an affordable, convenient, and self-paced associate, bachelor's, master's, or doctoral degree from a reputable institution which has been in existence since 1890.

Areas of concentration (degree tracks) include: Biblical Counseling, Christian Counseling Psychology,
