Are there any members of the BB that are students at either the Midwest Center for Theological Studies or Reformed Baptist Seminary? I know neither are accredited - please let's not bring up that debate! Both schools offer distance learning and neither could remotely be considered a diploma mill. Some of the faculty of both schools received the MDiv equivalency from MCTS's and RBS's sister/spiritual predecessor, Trinity Ministerial Academy in New Jersey and have gone on to earn PhDs at accredited institutions. Is there a likelihood of MCTS and RBS grads earning ThMs and PhDs at places like SBTS, WTS, or TEDS? Obviously, these schools are meeting a need for pastoral training (especially for Reformed Baptists) - rigorous academics in the context of a local church - a paradigm that most would agree would be most beneficial. Tell me BB, what are your thoughts?
