Through the financial assistance of faithful Christian friends and churches, The Master's College strives to offer students a Christ-centered education within the financial reach of all. The cost of training is considerably in excess of what a student pays. If people are to be trained to live for Christ, expenses must be kept at a minimum. The College is enabled to do this as Christian friends provide support through their generous gifts and prayers. With the establishment of scholarships and direct gifts, hundreds of students have been trained and prepared for specific fields of work and service.
