    Hello, everyone!

    I haven't been on more lately because I've been so busy with ministry and my two classes I'm taking through Liberty's DLP program. I LOVE their Master of Divinity program. It's a lot of fun, and it is very challenging!

    Anyways, I posted on another DL discussion board some costs associated with various D. Min. programs. They actually differ quite a bit in price, and I thought that was interesting. Keep a couple of things in mind:

    1. One should always, as others here have said, sense a calling to whatever particular school.
    2. These are costs for nationally or regionally accredited degrees (ATS, TRACS, etc.)
    3. Some of these schools might be a little more "liberal" than some of you like, but it's for comparison costs only.
    4. While most are Baptist seminaries, some are non or multi-denominational.

    Any comments you have, I'd love to hear:
