Below are some testimonies of students from arround the world.
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 and 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,
Dr. Warren D. Brown
In 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 It 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!
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 & Under His Command.
I am, Rose Glass,
Mike Lehew - Th.D.-Jacksonville Theological Seminary. I was looking prayerfully for a school to further
my educational goals in ministry. I wanted a quality school that had a good distance education program so I could stay close
to my ministry and not have to leave town for classes, seminars, etc. I looked at several good schools but felt led by the
Holy Spirit to look closely at JTS. After discussing the school, it's courses of study, and what their whole purpose for being
in existence was all about, there was no question, JTS was where I was supposed to be. I have degrees from state universities
and the JTS program was equaling as challenging and much more fulfilling. I recommend it to anyone seeking to enrich their
life through a study of God's word, especially to those already in ministry.
It is with tribute and esteem that I take this opportunity to recommend JTS to those who are busy and would like to
continue their education. Being in ministry for over thirty years and a corporate executive eighteen of those years; my schedule
was full. While traveling internationally and teaching full time at a Bible College, there was an increasing desire to deepen
my well with knowledge. JTS offered the ability to further my education with "at home studies" that met my needs and schedule.
Here I am, a pastor, educator, a Dean at a Bible school, and an internationally traveling evangelist wanting to add more to
my plate. JTS gave me the ability to study at my pace and schedule. They offered classes taught by qualified and anointed
instructors that ministered to me as a seasoned minister. The classes were quality, filled with practical and spiritual information
that enriched my life. The classes furthered my insight to God's Word, pastoral perspectives, and Christian Counseling. With
approval, admiration, and appreciation, I endorse JTS for what they have done for me. I now have my Th.D through JTS and I
am extremely pleased with what I received in instruction. If you are considering continuing your studies at home, STUDY with

I have been a distance learning student at Jacksonville Theological Seminary for a little over a year now. I am pursuing
a Masters degree in Christian Psychology. Dr. Terry Lee Stair is my Facilitator and he has been marvelous with answering questions
concerning school assignments and requirements and also with "Being There spiritually for my husband and I when life presented
twists and turns this year. I have loved all the classes I have taken so far through JTS. The entire experience has been VERY
positive. The Instructors are great and the course material is interesting and challenging had been looking for a school at
which to study Theology/Religious studies related subjects before I found JTS. I checked out some Universities in the Atlanta
area, but the class time/location either was not a good match for my schedule, or the majors offered were not quite what I
desired. I had specific interests and being that I have a BA in Sociology and Philosophy, and a desire to meld that with Gods
word, Christian Psychology is just what I was looking for. The study at home feature of this program is just what I need since
I am also working full-time at Snellville United Methodist Church. I have learned so much through my studies and as an effect,
I have grown spiritually. I would definitely recommend this program for anyone who is busy but also dedicated and serious
about studying religious/theological subjects and earning a degree. God is definitely working through JTS!
the Grace of God,
