“One of my greatest life experiences, theologically, spiritually and mentally.”

Florenstine Sullivan Woods

“The education I received at MTS was above par. The professors ranged from the conservative evangelical perspective to a more liberal mainline protestant perspective with a sprinkling of Roman Catholic in between. Yet all of them were caring and very well educated with a genuine love for Christ Jesus…”

Derek W. White

“MTS is one of the best things that could have happened to me. Going through their PAS program was an amazing experience and blessing.”
