Pastor Antoine Lee of Central Christian Church in Kansas City was eager to complete seminary, but work, family – and cost – made a Master of Divinity degree program seem unobtainable, until Rev. Debra Sermons, Central's Director of Recruitment, told him about the create program and the thoughtful planning that goes into each individual's schedule.
The create program is fully scholarshiped, schedules are designed for busy people, and classes are offered in Kansas City's urban core. “It was like they met all my needs before knowing my personal situation!” says Antoine. “I express sincere gratitude for everyone who was involved in making it possible for me to continue my education. Thank you!”
