Witness One:Seven

Witness One:SevenMid-America's purpose is to train men and women to fulfill the Great Commission. We believe the best way for students to learn how to effectively witness and minister to their communities is to witness and minister to their communities. In addition to the academic requirements at MABTS, all students are expected to participate in practical missions and ministry.


“I’ve had many opportunities to serve in various places in ways that I would not have if I had not come to Mid-America. It really opened up my eyes to see how many opportunities there really are for us to witness to others with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”  Rich Shadden

The MABTS Witness One:Seven (practical missions) program challenges students to share their faith on a regular basis and work with Gospel-centered ministries, with the expectation that students will dedicate at least two hours a week to their chosen ministries. Witness One:Seven opportunities range from feeding the homeless, to teaching English as a second language, to serving regularly in local churches. MABTS faculty and advisors can help students find Witness One:Seven sites that fit their talents, passions, and callings.


Although some students may find the expectation to share their faith on a weekly basis daunting, personal evangelism training is woven into the first-year MABTS curriculum. In the classroom and through hands-on experience, students are equipped to serve in whatever field of ministry they choose and to confidently share their faith, a skill they can use to reach others for Christ for the rest of their lives.


Once a week during chapel, students are given the opportunity to share testimonies from their Witness One:Seven and personal evangelism experiences.  Students provide moving accounts of how they have seen God at work. Since 1972, over 165,000 people have made a profession of faith as a result of a Gospel witness from MABTS students.
