Ministry Formation

Engage in a rigorous candidacy process, ministering to real people under the supervision of a seasoned ministry practitioner.

“The great risk of seminary is that you may finish with an overflowing mind and unrealistic expectations of ministry. For my part, I gained the desire to "bring theology to life" at Western. Now, on the mission field, what I learned at Western is confirmed in my experiences. Instead of "real life" conflicting with seminary, it is utterly reinforcing it. The training I received at Western is daily being used by God to steady my feet and guide my steps.” – Terry, MAML Graduate
