Well - after several years, schedule/family/life/ministry juggling, I will finally receive my degree this weekend! I don't want to come across as a salesman, nor as a spammer, but I would like to put a bug in folk's ears that may be looking for a fully-accredited seminary experience (SACS & ATS), at a cost FAR lower than most (if not all - I honestly have not shopped every accredited seminary around). Baptist Missionary Association Theological Seminary - Jacksonville, TX (with an extension campus in Conway, Arkansas - which is fully accredited on its own!!!), is a theologically conservative, Baptist seminary with a focus on theology, and expository preaching. For more info (degrees/requirements/other data and contact info): http://bmats.edu I cannot speak enough of the personal relationships I have developed as a result of my time as a BMATS student, which include bonds with professors who take a personal interest in each and every student - helping to apply classroom knowledge with real-life practice.
