My name is Matt Akers, and I serve as an assistant professor of Mid-America, as well as the director of the Hispanic students.
As a two time graduate of Mid-America (M.Div. and Ph.D.), I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your selfless generosity that allows students to graduate without the crushing burden of debt. I know firsthand what a blessing it is to be able to study to be better equipped to serve Christ, and to do so without worrying how to pay back a large loan.
During my time as a student, my lack of debt as a student allowed me to plant a church that could not support a fulltime pastor, and I was able to live on a church planter’s salary because of donors like you. I know for a fact that many current students similarly benefit from generous donors.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you for being a great blessing to future ministers, missionaries and teachers!
