In their words

hear from a student

Being a full-time pastor while I was attending school online challenged me to shift my thinking from theoretical to real time practical application. My professors regularly challenged me to work out and apply what we were learning within my unique ministry setting. My training became personal and by extension, my church became an extension of Ouachita’s classrooms.
