“I’m nearing the end of my MCOM studies and am thrilled to have learned and grown so much in these 2 1/2 years. I live in Kazakhstan, so the fact that this program is online means I can study with people like you in the States. As an “older” student (I’m 43 ) I have returned to school after many years and plan to go on for PhD studies fall 2013. This program has prepared me well for study, research, and writing at the PhD level and beyond. If you come, and especially if you plan to continue in your education as I am, take advantage of the opportunity to be a graduate assistant with Dr. Woods. He’s an amazing mentor!” Read more.

I can’t say enough great things about it.” Read more.

”Recently, I passed a sign in our town for a ‘Mystic Weekend Spiritual Retreat’ at the local community college. I was immediately grateful to God for leading me to a spirituality program centered on the Trinity, our One True God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit – the MSFL program at Spring Arbor University. MSFL is giving me the opportunity to learn and practice the presence of God by sitting at the feet of the pros, those ancient brothers and sisters in the faith, and traveling alongside my current brothers and sisters in the faith – my cohort and professors.” Read more

“I have nothing but great things to say about the MCOM program. This is my second semester in the program. Even though it is all online, there is a great sense of community.

“Today, a young man in our faith community said to me, ‘Mary, you are at the peak of your life and ministry right now. The learning of these past three years has empowered your preaching, informed your teaching and made you a confident and effective leader and director. You can’t resign now.’” Read more
