How did you come to start TES at MBC: I was pastoring a church in South Africa and saw the need to further my education. I had trained three men to be elders to be able to take the church over. As I searched for seminaries which held to these particular views, TES was at the top of the list. The Lord opened all the right doors to make the transition from South Africa to the States as seamless as possible. The Grand Rapids campus opened at the same time we were moving back. It was divinely orchestrated from the beginning.
