Starting Spring 2018 we will have four hybrid courses through MTS campus. What is a hybrid course you ask? “Hybrid” course, meaning both face-to-face class time merged with online learning. The purpose of a hybrid course is to take advantage of the best features each option has to offer and blend them together for optimal learning.

We are thrilled to be able to extend the reach of our work through Open MTS. For the first time this fall, new technology we have installed will allow persons to audit full MTS classes over the internet. Whether in person or connecting virtually, we urge pastors and laypersons alike to take advantage of these opportunities for continuing education to enhance Ministry for the Real World.

“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.”
