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. Download, complete, and save the simple MTC Application form. Email it to us and then register for your class(es). You may pay online using a credit or debit card. Be sure to select the “Application Fee” on the Course Descriptions page to add it to your Shopping Card. If you would rather pay by check, you will receive an invoice via email for the one-time $30 Application Processing fee and the tuition for the class(es) you have selected. Email us if you have questions or want to learn more.
