Global Ministries Universities offers programs designed to meet the ministerial needs of people from all walks of life. Read what our students have to say about GMU:
A graduate receives promotion as a result of his GMU Doctor of Ministry degree... CSU Western CT State University, in Danbury, CT has accepted my DMin Degree, granted by Global Ministries University. This is a great benefit to me in that the degree raised my status level at WCSU (where I, also, previously taught,) and as a result, my salary level. The University did this without question. I recommend the program to all, especially those who have been, or who are currently, in ministry. -Dr. Leo McIllrath, Sandy Hook, CT
A student from Lithuania who appreciates GMU’s policy of awarding prior learning and life experience… I chose to enroll in the Master of Theology program because of its liberal, ecumenical and accessible approach. This program honors my education in the "university of life," which was my only option for studying theology while living in a soviet-occupied country, where education was dictated and controlled by the soviets -- making it hard to get a good education without breaking the law. -Rev. Zilvinas Jaksta St. Paul, MN
A graduate who needed time and flexibility to earn her degree… I believe that independent study is a wonderful solution for working adults.My coursework has been a long road for an old lady (now 60) and very rewarding. I appreciate GMU’s flexible schedule, as I have had to cope with some personal difficulties, and look forward to more fascinating classes in the future. -Rev. Patti McClellan San Pablo, CA
A 74-year-old senior citizen who heard a callingand earned his Doctor of Ministry degree in order to spread the Word of God… GMU was a positive and excellent experience that exceeded my expectations in learning, communication, effectiveness and efficiency... Online education in my opinion was more beneficial to me than on campus education, because I was required to read and interpret the provided instructions for my courses; research, read, understand, and write my understanding of what I read to the satisfaction of my professors. Consequently, I have gained and retained more knowledge than I did in my prior on campus education. -Rev.Dr. John Wesley Hardy Montgomery Village, MD
