What is your message to a prospective student?

"I don't know of another program out there that prepares students for ministry and leadership in Unitarian Universalism better than MLTS. The education and training I received at MLTS has served me in ways I had not even thought of in ministry. The relationships I formed with my classmates who are now colleagues are life-long and among the closest friendships I have had in my life."

What do you like about working for MLTS?

"Having been a student, working at MLTS is fascinating. I knew as a student that the faculty and staff were passionate about ministry and leadership, but working with these same folks behind the scenes has given me an appreciation for just how much time, effort, and passion the MLTS faculty and staff devote to the service of their students."
