A Message From Dr. John MacArthur
The 1990's "new standard" brought a challenge to higher education. Careerism, the idea of obtaining a degree merely to secure a job, gave way to the desire for a complete college experience. Today, discerning college-bound students look for a school that is committed to the
development of character as well as the mind. Young people come to The Master's College seeking to be thoroughly equipped for life.
The Master's College has always been, and continues to be, particularly concerned with ultimate issues--namely the spiritual character of our students, character built on Scripture and firmly rooted in a relationship with Christ. This is accomplished through Chapel attendance three times a week and opportunities to become involved with a more mature Christian through discipleship.
Academically we focus on helping students develop knowledge, wisdom, social skills, leadership abilities and the necessary skills to solve problems, resolve conflict, and to think both critically and analytically. A great deal of emphasis is placed on developing clear communication skills which we believe are crucial to a complete college education.
Student development continues within the context of the local church. Beyond our campus, students choose from a number of churches in the area and attend morning and evening services where they are able to use the skills they are taught in the classroom and modeled by our entire faculty and staff. Biblical Christianity is not something students see for later in life, but rather, they are confronted with the message that this is the life they must live now.
Indeed, the "new standard" at The Master's College is a commitment to provide more than a degree. Our commitment to character formation leads to a graduate who will be an effective agent in the expansion of God's kingdom.
In The Master's Service,
Dr. John MacArthur
