“I thank God for the privilege of sitting at the feet of Christian teachers and professors who molded my life so to speak in God’s ways.”

Carol Grunholz

“I know the Lord is smiling on MLC for the work being done to train those who will teach Gods word to the World. There is no work more important.”

Jack Ulrich

“Reflecting on the quality of education that I received at MLC and the quality of the professors that I had throughout the program, I don’t think I could have found that care and attention anywhere else.”

Gretchen HintzMS Ed 2015, Leadership Emphasis

“I love the fact that everyone is so friendly and genuine at MLC. It amazes me how everyone smiles and says hi even if you’ve only chatted once. The unity of the student body is very apparent to me, and the faith that unifies them is incredible.”
