Student Testimonies

I chose to pursue my Master of Divinity at Winebrenner so that I could know Jesus more fully and from out of my own transformation, extend His love to others. The knowledge and practical skills I am gaining from my classes apply directly to my role as an Associate Pastor. It has been a rich and rewarding journey forward in God’s call on my life.

Elyse Everhart
MDiv Alumnus | Associate Pastor

I’m currently serving as a full-time pastor and attended Winebrenner when I was an intern. Winebrenner’s online Master of Arts in Practical Theology allowed me to stay committed to my church and take classes at the very same time. The professors and other students were so encouraging and their combined perspectives challenged me to grow in my own ministry role. The classes were practical and engaging and I apply what I’m learning every week as a serve in my new church.

Thank you for taking the time to explore how we may be able to play a part in your spiritual journey and God’s unique call on your life. The true identity of Winebrenner Seminary is not found in a specific building, or even a particular classroom, but in the people who are united in the desire to more fully understand the way God is asking us to join Him to accomplish His Kingdom purposes.

Since our founding in 1942, we have been afforded the opportunity to equip leaders for service in God’s Kingdom. I encourage you to investigate our academic programs, courses, and faculty to see if this is where God is calling you to take a next step.
