Jacksonville Theological Seminary is lead by men and women called by God. The courses are designed to acquaint the students with the Bible and the God of the Bible. It is not an institution of mere fact finding, information gathering, or intellectualism. The student has a life changing encounter with Jesus the Christ. The anointed lectureship and remarkable textbooks are true to the intent of the Word, accurate in its exegesis, practical in its teaching, and spirit filled in its delivery. Although this is the fifth seminary from which I have received instruction, it has by far offered the most life changing assignments that have practically prepared me for a lifework of Ministry. The testimonies of the professors, the availability of the facilitators, the discovery and verification of your divine purpose, and the equipping of one for selfless service for a self-sacrificing Savior, are all guaranteed experiences for all JTS students. As a result of my studies at JTS I have made a renewed commitment to family life, Christian integrity, functioning in the spiritual gifts assigned by God, ministerial sobriety, salvation of souls, and “rightly dividing the Word of Truth”. I would highly recommend Jacksonville Theological Seminary to anyone who wants to have a spiritually, theologically, practically sound effective Ministry.

I would like to tell you that studying at your institution has been one of the most exciting time of my life. I am the proud holder of three degrees. However, the fourth degree that I am in the midst of completing has been the best one. It has been ordained that by God that I receive this degree in order to further his glory. The information that I have obtained is valuable for the mission that I need to embark on. I did not know the Lord until late in life. However, I cannot stop in trying to learn more about Him. The courses that I have taken have been valuable in my learning and maturation process as a Christian. I was given information and knowledge that I did not know. I was given the ability to be a spiritual Blessing to others. Knowledge without wisdom is dangerous. I am have been given the ability to seek wisdom through the guidance of God by my studies at JTS. I feel that I was able to learn from the tapes and able to go back and decipher the information that was needed the most. I feel for once in my life that I have received a true gift from God through my studies at Jacksonville Theological Seminary.

It has been an honor to have been a student at JTS. I feel that I am now equipped to go and deliver the words of a great savior like Jesus Christ through the learning process received at JTS.

I proudly recommend JTS to anyone,

Your Grateful Servant,

At Jacksonville Theological Seminary I found a program that fit my ministerial and educational goals and worked within my schedule. Jacksonville Theological Seminary is solid in Biblically sound teaching. The courses stimulate both the cognitive and spiritual dimensions of one's learning experience.

The flexibility of home schooling fit well within my personal and ministerial responsibilities. I found JTS to be a challenging program that combined theory with practical application. The lessons were readily transferable to the ministry God has placed me in.

The knowledge I received from JTS has been applied in my duties as the pastor of the Healing Waters Church in Canon City, Colorado. I have been taking college classes for some thirty plus years, from colleges all over the United States. I have taken many classes that I found to be boring and hard to apply to real life. However, I found the program at JTS to be stimulating, challenging, and refreshing.

JTS not only helped me to be a better minister in my church, but also to function as a leader in the conference in which I serve. JTS has definitely sharpened my God given skills.

Probably the greatest benefits I have received from my training at JTS have been in the area of personal character development. It has shown me that perseverance and persistence pay off eventually. Having my doctor's degree in Theology has given me a greater degree of credibility as a member of the board of directors for the Rocky Mountain Conference of the International Pentecostal Holiness Church, and as the WIN (prayer) director for the conference.

JTS is a quality seminary that fulfilled my needs and exceeded my expectations. It is an awesome opportunity to grow. I would highly recommend JTS to anyone interested in pursuing a Christian education.

The Bible starts off in Genesis 1:1 "In the beginning" God ends in the Book of Revelation 22:21 with the word "amen". This Book of Books reveals God's plan for humanity. Filled with great stories of tragedy, triumph, sin, forgiveness, and love it is a constant reminder of what it is to be alive in the world.

Much of my faith journey has involved the pursuit of education. So where does an Episcopalian with an A.S. in Data Processing Technology, a B.S. in Biblical Education and Computer Information Systems, a Master of Arts in Church Ministries and a Masters in Library Science decide to pursue his doctoral studies? Of course, JTS!

I am here to assure you today that I do not regret that decision. I named my final dissertation "Toward a Theology of Education and Christian Formation: Theoria and Ortho-praxis with Particular Focus on the Holy Spirit." It was about 200 pages of blood, sweat and tears but I made it!

I graduated at the end of May with a Doctor of Religious Philosophy in Christian Education degree. Since Library Science builds itself off all knowledge, this degree is also proving to be useful in my secular work. It is amazing how things just work out if you keep pressing toward the goal. God cares and makes the impossible happen. Just like the Bible itself, the Amen will surely occur sometime toward the close of my days as it will for each of us. In the meantime, I am glad that JTS came along during these years of my life and trust that the things I learned from my professors at JTS will remain hidden in my heart yet lived out in my daily walk.

Thank you, JTS for being a friend!

In JTS people don't change the Word but the Word changes people. My life has been spiritually well nourished ever since I started with JTS. Their teachings consist of a good mixture of the Word and things of the Spirit.

God's Counsel James 1:5, NJKV "If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him." Prior to attending JTS I knew in my knower that God had a plan for me. He wanted to move me past faith into trusting Him to bring through every challenge thereby acheiving my expected end. I knew that it was up to me to decide to let God use me. First by preparing for the task. I attended JTS and earned a B.A. degree in Biblical Studies and M.A. degree in Christian Psychology. God has opened so many doors of opportunity for me that I am amazed weekly! I minister in word and song in Churches, Prisons, Parks and TV Studios. I am currently working on writing books and exploring the idea of an unconventional 411 television show. Commitment to prayer and applying the knowledge of God's word has been the key. I honor the Lord for His faithfulness to me. I praise Him for the truth that I do not operate on yesterday's mercy because He gives me brand new mercies everyday. He has not suffered His faithfulness to fail me. I love Him, He is Jesus, the Christ my Lord. In His Service and Under His Command.

I am, Rose Glass, M.A.
