MLC currently offers two programs: The Degree Seeking Program and the Certification Program. Both programs include education and provide an opportunity for you to receive as much as 500 hours of hands-on experience. Both tracks also equip you with the knowledge and qualifications to become a credentialed minister with the Assemblies of God if desired.

degree seeking program

With regional accreditation, Southeastern University is well established, and we are proud to be partnering with them to offer you a great way to discover your divine purpose. Southeastern at Evangel is able to offer various online degree options for you to pursue. These degrees are coupled with practicum credits that go toward your ultimate graduation requirements and allow you to get hands-on leadership experience in your chosen track. You will participate in online classes in pursuit of your chosen degree while being a part of a cohort of students who are also pursuing degrees from Southeastern at Evangel.

Southeastern University offers MLC students a significant discount for the same accredited degree that you would get onsite. The degree seeking track truly allows you go beyond the standard classroom context to actually experience what you are learning.


This program partners with Global University’s Berean School of the Bible. You will learn foundations of the faith through courses like, “Christ in the Synoptic Gospels” and “Relationships and Ethics in Ministry”, among many others. This program doesn’t lead to formal college credits, but it does prepare you for leadership roles in the church and provides you the requirements to be certified as a minister under the Assemblies of God.
