New to MTC?

Are you taking classes as part of a certification process through your district or mission organization? Be sure to connect with that organization prior to starting at MTC. They may have a separate application process and they may have updated their track since we posted it to our site.

Are you taking classes for your own personal growth and desire to have a more mission-focused outlook as a Christian? Feel free to register for any non-cohort class at anytime.

Take a look around the site. Choose a class or two you would like to take from the list above and add them to your cart. When you are ready to checkout, take a moment to complete our simple, online application. The link is also available when you click “No” in the “Submitted Your Application?” section on the left side of the Checkout screen. After completing and submitting your application, go back to the Checkout screen and select “Please add it to my card” to pay the one-time $30 application fee, and then click “Yes: Continue to finalize your registration below.” If paying with a credit or debit card, be sure the Billing Information matches the card information – especially if your church or RSO is paying for your courses. If you prefer to pay by check, you will receive an invoice via email and instructions on how to pay it. Email us if you have questions or want to learn more.
