My plan after finishing my degree is to finally read all the books I bought from the Westminster bookstore!
Master of Arts in Theological Studies (MATS)
My time here at Westminster has truly been a gift. I have not only gained knowledge, but I feel that I have been transformed. For me, WTS has become a theological home. God has used so many saints, both living and long past, to nourish my spiritual growth and make me a better church leader. […]

I’m profoundly grateful that God gave me the opportunity to be a part of Westminster’s MATS program. My time here has been so rich and so grace-filled.

I would like to teach men and encourage them to be the men that God called them to be: leaders in their homes and sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with lost. The best part of my program was the small groups to be able to hear others talk about their love for Jesus Christ. […]

However, I’m still considering whether to continue on in my […]

Being able to study and obtain a degree from Westminster Theological Seminary was something that I had wanted to do for a very […]

My plans are to continue my focus on helping women to become Women of God using God’s Word as long as it is in His will. I enjoyed working on a team led by Dean Jerry McFarland, brainstorming ideas on how to help the students at WTS.
