Community

Each accepted student will be placed in a ministry cohort that provides encouragement and strengthens learning. Cohorts spend time with leading ministers and scholars who bring unique insights for faithful ministry in the modern world. These cohorts allow students to prepare for lifelong ministry and learning through the strong support of a community of learners – an essential skill for ministry success and longevity.

Leadership

Both the cohorts and the academic classes stress essential competencies that enable each graduate to be a high-capacity leader. Unique learning environments, practicums and courses reinforce leadership ideas that help each student to become a leader ready to make a difference for Christ through the local church and on the mission field.

Discipline

The academic rigor of Accelerate challenges students to develop capacities of self-discipline that are essential for ministry success. Lazy students need not apply! Students are required to maintain a 3.0 while taking 15 credit hour per semester to remain in the program. Accelerate students are top performers who are able to demonstrate balance in life and ministry while striving for excellence. The accountability of the cohorts and the caring community of Midwestern helps build into each student the discipline required to succeed in ministry today and tomorrow.
