The Master of Divinity is the degree typically desired by many denominations for those seeking ordination and by larger independent churches as they seek pastoral leadership for their congregations.

"Growing up in a Christian family, I have heard Scripture teachings and have been a Christian most of my life. However, I have never been afforded the opportunity of being formally taught more about the Bible from such knowledgeable professors. By taking classes at New England Bible College, my understanding of the Bible has increased exponentially. Most importantly, I am being trained to be an effective defender of my faith and am better able to fulfill the Great Commission."

Joshua Sparling, M.D.
