[What we learn] at Central is very relevant to ministry work I do today. I didn’t have to wait to graduate until I implement what I was learning.

Students are encouraged to have our own opinion. We are allowed to have our own understanding. And we are trained to find sources to support that opinion.

From day one I meshed with people in my class. We developed a relationship and trust. And with my instructors…were authentic and vulnerable, and they were so welcoming.

While it’s important for me to understand [theology] academically, Central did a great job of helping me to then translate my academic understanding to pastoral communication for the congregation.
I believe that the work Central does to keep down costs is a huge part of their faithful service to the Church. Most of us will not get rich as pastors. When we graduate from seminary without huge debt, we can more easily focus on the ministries to which we are called.
