Learn about our Academics

"I chose FBS because I wanted to make sure that my preaching was reaching the heart of people… I’m hoping that my preaching ministry will be enhanced by this degree. We also use counseling as an outreach to the community, and having a master’s degree even as a pastor and as a church exemplifies that we’re serious, that we have studied hard, and that we can make a contribution to your life, so I’m hoping that as people come in, they find that this Master’s degree has actually helped that."
- Shawn Otto, Pastor at Providence Mennonite Church
