After You Complete the MCCC Program

Once you are finished with the MCCC program, the goal for each student is to apply their knowledge and skills to be a caring leader in their community. Whether you want to work full-time or part-time in a church or ministry-related organization, we help you to achieve that transition. Many of our students work outside their church in their larger community. Ministry is evolving in a technological age where spiritual care is increasingly important. As the future of ministry continues to emerge, churches and people will always need listeners and caregivers.
