Practical missions infuse the very DNA of Mid-America, marking a passion ignited by our founder, Dr. B. Gray Allison, whose soul-winning exploits challenged generations. Fifty years later, Mid-America President Dr. Michael Spradlin and the faculty still carry the torch for personal evangelism. It’s one of the hallmarks of Mid-America that sets us apart.
The “Six Core Tasks of Church Planting” provide a basic map to guide a missionary along the continuum from entering a new community, sharing the Gospel, discipling new and maturing believers, forming healthy churches, developing local leaders, and exiting to new communities while maintaining a healthy connection with that maturing church. This “map” lays out the big picture of the missionary task and helps one chart the course in the right direction.
When you graduate from Mid-America, you join a global family that magnifies your ministry for life.
When a friend and mentor recommended Mid-America as affordable, biblically sound, and having an undergrad program, I enrolled for one semester until I could make other arrangements. I came to class out of desperation to stay in school, but I stayed at Mid-America because of the community.
Mid-America’s world-class faculty and staff lead our family, are connected with students and supporters, and are committed to the Gospel.
