I have greatly enjoyed my time at EMS. I expected to learn a lot, but my experience here has exceeded my expectations. Each week, I come out of my classes with something practical that is incorporated into my ministry, is helpful for something I am teaching, or guides me in the leadership of our congregation. I have appreciated the genuine friendships that exist among the students. Everyone's willingness to share from their own experiences has added to the learning environment here.
What courses did you enjoy the most at EMS?
It would be hard to pick a single favorite, but the ones that stick out the most are probably the theology, mission, and church history courses. I like classes and professors that challenge me to think not only about what I believe, but also to articulate why I believe it.
