Mini-Term Testimonials

This mini-term was such an eye opening experience. I was so grateful for my experience.  It was an awesome class!!  Not only were the academics beneficial, but this class also brought me closer to my Savior and gave me a better understanding for what He has planned for my life.   Lael L., PA

 

During the mini-term we also had the opportunity to learn more about the persecuted church has helped me to know how to pray for my persecuted brothers and sisters. I appreciated everything that I learned from the course and would certainly recommend it to any Christian.  Hanna S, MO

 

I really liked the mini term.  Not only was I able to gain valuable information about Christian response to secular powers but I also had a great time meeting new people and being so far from home it was amazing!   Cynthia C, FL

 

I attended a mini-term and was very pleased by my experience. The faculty members facilitated a great learning environment.  The university that I attend accepted the transfer of OKWU’s credits without any hesitation. I would recommend the class to anyone able to take it.   Aaron L, Louisiana

 

The mini term was an intense course, yet with a heart-felt worship session drenched in biblical truth: countless hours spent in the word of God, essays after essays, debates, and unforgettable fellowships; it was a week very well spent with my brothers and sisters. The historical and theological studies of the topic “God and government” and helped me to find the answers to my questions as a Christian service member, and further brought me to my knees in worship to the Lord in His sovereignty.    Jeff K, NY

 

The mini-term gave me the opportunity to become immersed in an intensive biblical study examining the historical role of government and the church and its implications today. I appreciated the scope of instruction from the classroom teaching, leadership and insight and experiences shared by staff who serve the persecuted church.  Mike N, IA

 

A 3-credit course at a Christian university and connections with Christian ministries were all packaged into one really affordable bundle!  From morning till midnight, I and my fellow classmates ate, drank, read, listened and studied God and Government.  The friendships forged were not easily forgotten, and the Lord’s presence with us made our time together very precious.  Melody M, WI

 

Thank you so much for providing this vital Mini Term which helps people understand persecution and how to get involved.
