What are People Saying about TEDS MIlwaukee?

Sheila Haygood, MA
Founder/CEO of Worthy International Ministries Inc. & Coordinator of Perspectives World Wide Christian Movement

Attending TEDS Milwaukee has expanded my personal growth by calling me higher into disciplining myself. The reward of seeking Him in study and connecting to a community of learners who too are listening for His perspective on many issues today, has changed my life. If you need a push and desire to grow in fulfilling your purpose, I say don’t delay open your heart come into him and receive.

David W. Pao, PhD
Dean of Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

The world desperately needs the gospel, and a training ground that is boldly evangelical—for teachers, for pastors, for theologians, and for counselors. A place where faithfulness to the gospel of the cross is at the very center of our training, practices, and study. My goal is to ensure that this continues to be the mission of TEDS.

t’s Graduation Eve. I’ve tried, a number of times within the last few weeks, to wrap my brain around what this degree and graduation mean to me. It’s so significant on several levels. 

Chris and I started taking TEDS classes when we were engaged and newly married in the early 90’s. We were working toward the Certificate program—about one year of seminary—just enough to apply to a mission board, which was the goal at that time.  That plan was quickly thwarted though, and while Chris eventually finished the program, I didn’t. I was teaching full time and we had bought a fixer-upper on the east side. As the years went by, I thought about going back to school, but I was in and out of part-time jobs, there were kids to raise and aging parents to take care of. 

Then, at my lowest point, after a family crisis, God re-ignited the desire, and in effect, said, “It’s your time now—go back to school.” There was no career strategy, no compelling reason for me to go to seminary other than that call. So, I took the long, slow road, one course at a time to 42 graduate credits.  

And, I loved it. Higher education is so much more than downloading content into your brain; it’s about being changed intrinsically, and that takes time. It has strengthened my theological framework, enlarged my perspective, and taught me new approaches to problem-solving.
