1. We help you engage your calling. We are very intentional about creating space for you to talk about where God is leading you and what you think you need in order to get there. In the midst of that conversation, we help showcase how McAfee intersects with that calling by helping make you a more informed, compassionate, and prepared minister of the gospel.
2. You get to meet current students who come from similar life situations, worldviews, social locations, etc. and talk to them about their experiences at McAfee. Meeting others who have gone before you helps ease the anxiety about moving to a new place and staring at at a new school.
3. It’s an opportunity to interview for merit-based scholarships. If you have a 3.25 GPA, are either a senior or college graduate from a regionally accredited undergraduate institution and have completed your application for admissions, then you are eligible to interview for a full tuition merit-based scholarship.
4. You realize the opportunities awaiting you as you learn, network and experience Atlanta. The nature of McAfee being in Atlanta allows for incredible resources, network opportunities and experiences to become available to you. McAfee is proud to say we are “well connected.” If you are looking to enter congregational, nonprofit, NGO, Para-church, or counseling ministries, then McAfee/Atlanta is the places for you. As a student, you meet the people in the vocation you are interested in pursuing. These opportunities become invaluable.
5. You get the chance to feel the presence of God for yourself. There’s nothing like stepping onto campus and knowing in your heart this is where God wants you to be. You don’t get that from just looking at our website.
6. Immediately following the conference, Brian McLaren is speaking at our William L. Self Preaching Lectures. You are invited to stay for free!
So if you are a college student or already a graduate, we invite you and your spouse or guest to join us. McAfee School of Theology provides lodging and meals during the conference. There is also some travel assistance available.
