“The Accelerate Program was both amazing and stretching! It combined academic, experiential, and small group learning opportunities. This largely happened through classroom instruction, visiting churches and ministries, and meeting with numerous ministry leaders. While working on my M.A., one of my favorite parts was studying alongside and creating relationships with pastors who had been actively engaged in ministry for years. The entire process was filled with opportunities to grow, and I greatly value the time I spent there to this day!”
