Teaching Churches

Teaching Churches are partnerships between MB Seminary and the local church to provide leaders, students and other learners with seminary-quality education and training that is contextualized to their congregation. Learners can earn undergraduate credits, graduate certificates, or even a master’s degree right in their home church! Alternatively, learners can also participate in the teaching workshops for their own personal interest, helping them to serve God and their church more effectively.
