"MS-SOM was a lifesaver for me. I could never afford to go off to Bible college since I was married and working full time. I looked into Global and although it was good, the price was still out of reach. And then MS-SOM came about and was really affordable. But you cannot put a price tag on the friendships I've made with fellow students, teachers and district officials. You cannot put a price tag on what I've learned just having fellow pastors impart their knowledge of real life experiences in us to help us grow as future pastors."
