    Mark and team. I have learned of the changes coming to MBBS and offer my support and love at this time. Special hi to Bruce! Please give my greetings to your entire team. You are an amazing group. Shirley and I have settled into our new setting and I learn each day about ministry among senior adults

    I’m concerned about the impact of cutbacks on staff. I sincerely hope that other options might be considered.

    I too am concerned about the impact of the cutbacks and wonder if you have considered other options.

    Hi, Robert and Marjorie. Thank you for your comments of concern. As you can imagine, the decisions that were made were incredibly difficult, and many different scenarios were considered. As you can, please continue to pray for the people and ministries of the seminary.

    Just a thought, is there any talk about offering a simple diploma program for those of us who do not intend to get a degree but would value a program offering a solid biblical curriculum from an anabaptist perspective? Even a small program of several core courses to offer MB Church members could be a real benefit, especially for elders and those inclined to dig deeper into the faith. Could be a great way to involve us non-academics into the seminary

      That is a great idea, Scott, and is actually something we are considering. Potentially options that are non-credit (eg, professional development) and/or are for academic credit (eg, graduate studies but not a full degree program). I am hopeful that we will be able to do this relatively soon!
