A Message From the Dean of Student Life
I am confident in God's leading and desire to see each of His children know His perfect will for their future. We believe that every student at The Master's College is experiencing God's perfect will for them, and that their desire is to become more like the Master. We have a very intentional spiritual agenda here that views every area of life as spiritual. This includes your academic, ministry, and social activities and relationships. A biblical understanding of life reveals that God is to be worshipped in all things and expects the believer to be a good steward of all resources and opportunities He provides.
We also believe that every student at the college should recognize God's sovereign plan to raise up a generation of Godly leaders to enable His church to accomplish His mission, and they will be recognized as one who was sent by God to be equipped for effective spiritual leadership.
The Student Life department has a strong philosophy of leadership development which affects how we do housing, discipleship opportunities, networking with local churches, serving in our community, and evangelizing the lost. These are our Lord's passions and we believe those who lead in His kingdom must learn how to live these things out in the midst of life's demands. The process of leadership development is one that requires great committment and sacrifice. Students who take full advantage of the academic courses and Student Life programs will be challenged and encouraged in achieving this goal.
The curriculum at TMC is a whole life curriculum. Our Lord instructed us to love the Lord our God with all our hearts, minds, souls, and strengths. The picture is one of the entirety of man being equipped and used to glorify God.
We attempt to recognize the clear biblical mandates that Christians should gladly obey. But, we do not suggest that you are spiritual if you do these things in a spirit of legalism. External behavior never proves spiritual maturity. Our desire is to see the heart shaped after that of Christ's. When the heart is correct, it will produce Godly acts. It is then that you will discover what it really means to be a student of the Master.
We do not promise to be a sinless campus. We only claim the promise of Philippians 1:6, "He who began a good work in you will be faithful to complete it..." May God become more real to you in every area as you seek Him in the days ahead. We will commit our strength to encouraging you in this exciting process.
Because our God loves us,
