Online Openseminary MTS

"With the flexibility that this program provides, it allowed me to juggle all the different aspects of my life and also get the quality education that I needed."
-Kerry Turk, '15 

"In this program, I was pushed to examine my belief and gain a better understanding of why we do what we do. I know I am a different person walking out of this program than who I was walking into it." 
-Quinton Phillips, '15 

"I wanted to study something I absolutely loved. When I saw this program where I could really be delving into the Bible and studying the Bible and what it means to me practically, I was just fascinated by that." 
-Janelle Spedding, '16
