Navy Veteran Uses GI Bill at TMC
October 8, 2013
LOS ANGELES, Calif. – The following is a personal testimony from one of our students, US Navy Veteran Timothy Miller:
"As a young boy I remember dozing off to a John MacArthur sermon on my grandmother’s couch. Although I was familiar with John MacArthur’s Bible teaching ministry I didn’t know that he was the president of a college and seminary. It wasn’t until I joined the Navy that I learned of The Master’s college through missionaries and pastors around the world. These missionaries and pastors always said one of two things about The Master’s College: “You need to go there” or “If I could do college over again, I would have gone there.”
"Hearing such good recommendations from such godly people I knew I had to look into the school. After visiting TMC’s website I learned that they had just opened a military resource office. I also discovered that TMC accepted the Post 9/11 GI Bill and is a Yellow-Ribbon participating school! This was one of the primary reasons that I chose TMC.
"The military resource office was staffed with prior military like me, and they were able to answer my questions about using my education benefit at TMC. The military resource office was especially helpful with the application process, and worked hand-in-hand with the Financial Aid team to get my GI Bill approved. I did all of this while deployed to the Middle East onboard and Aircraft Carrier. I was so excited about coming that a shipmate of mine, and now a fellow TMC student, Stephen Ricks, decided to join me. We had a great time explaining that we were “not going to get our Masters, we are going to Master’s.”
"It couldn’t have worked out any better, and I thank God for directing me here alongside so many awesome students and so many great professors and staff, along with the Military Admissions Office! To use Government Money to study here at TMC is such a blessing, and I would encourage any Service Members looking for a solid education founded on the Word of God to check us out at www.masters.edu/military."
