As a recent ITS ThD graduate and current ITS PhD Biblical Studies student, I have been truly blessed with my association with ITS. As a career businessman (President & CEO), I needed a format that was flexible enough to accommodate my schedule. As a Dallas Theological Seminary Graduate (MABS), I wanted a curriculum that was both academically challenging and spiritually motivating. As a very active church member (Sunday School Teacher, Lay Preacher, Deacon, Small Group Leader, etc), I wanted to continue growing even though I am now 60+. The distance learning format at ITS helped me accomplish all of these goals. The course work is of the very highest caliber. I have never worked so hard and yet learned so much than in the 4 years I have been an ITS student. I strongly recommend ITS to any serious student of the Bible or theology. - Dan Schmierer
I am so excited to be a graduate of ITS. I was able to work at my own pace and still continue my other responsibilities. The staff at ITS encouraged me every step of the way and cheered as I finally reached my goal. The degree program challenged me to learn and helped prepare me for ministry as I deepened my walk as a Christ follower. I recommend ITS to anyone preparing for ministry. -- Steven Blanton (Bachelor of Theology, 2012)
My name is Michael Gene Miller and I live and work in the San Antonio, Texas area. I selected ITS for my doctoral studies after review of serveral alternatives and the recommendation of a paster friend of mine. I decided to pursue the degree to learn more about the Lord in general and become deeply versed in the topic He selected for me for the dissertation. I have a full-time secular job and try (as we all should) to "bring the Gospel with me" everywhere I go. I also support a local drug and alcohol recovery ministry, as well as minister at my local church as the leadership directs. My affiliation with the ITS staff and faculty has blessed me richly, and I can wholeheartedly recommend the ITS programs to anyone who wants to server the Lord more fully.
My name is Chris Eckert and I am Senior pastor of a United Methodist Church in Alabama. I earned the Doctorate of Theology from ITS. I found more Christian Education at ITS than I found at my other Universities. I have also recommended some friends to ITS. They found the same caring that I did. ITS is very student friendly and always earnestly cooperating with its students.
My name is Eric and I am a Youth Pastor in South Carolina. I am so thankful that I discovered ITS on the Internet. I graduated in 2002, along with the Baptist Church in which I work and ITS steadily encouraging me. I was able to graduate with an enormous amount of Biblical Education. I have recommended several friends to ITS. They have received the same encouragement and help.
I heard about ITS on the radio announce its program in Counseling while I was driving across Florida. The Lord spoke to me and told me this is where I should enroll to enter the counseling ministry into which He was calling me. When I got home I called and enrolled over the phone. That was 14 years ago. Today I have earned my Masters and Ph.D in Counseling. I have been involved in the Counseling ministry for nearly all of these years and have been very successful. I love you ITS! - Cindy Allen
I became a student of ITS to learn about the Bible and all the Bible is about. I am doing just that! It is amazing that I went so long assuming that I knew so much. Now I am well on my way to becoming knowledgeable in the Word. I know what is going on when I hear others preach and teach. I recognize Bible names, places and passages when I hear them. I also am able to understand more clearly what I read. ITS is awesome. - Chris
I am president and founder of Community Empowerment Outreach in Baltimore Maryland. God has blessed me with wonderful success. I have been delivered from tragedy to triumph and opportunity. I have been able to graduate from 2 major universities but I am just as excited about my Doctorate degree from International Theological Seminary. In this Institution I was able to build my confidence and increase my skill in the Word of God. ITS has been first in many things and it is first in my education. - Lillie Coley
My name is Gehu Pierre and I pastor a Haitian church in West Palm Beach, Florida. I graduated from ITS and became Ordained in ITSMA. Since then, in the past three years, my church has spread all over. It is growing with a burst of anointing. Later, my wife became a student also in ITS. She already has a Masters degree in a secular field but wanted to know more Bible. She too, is happy with ITS.
