I am very grateful to be a part of SUM. It has been years sense I have been to school and I couldn't ask for a better experience. I love the lay out as well as the Professors. It's been pretty hectic getting going, but the more I keep showing up, the better it's getting. The personnel who are involved are absolutely wonderful. They do everything that I ask of them. It would be a blessing to get this scholarship. Thank you for the opportunity. God bless!

If you are looking to go into ministry and can't go away to school I HIGHLY recommend SUM. They are very affordable and you get both the biblical knowledge and practical experience. They also set-up their program so that you can feasibly work FT if you need too. All my classes are Monday/Tuesday, I still work with as a Property Manager and work for my church. My schedule is CRAZY but not impossible. Also, the teachers are great. They love God and really have a heart to prepare us for ministry. Go here if you can! The Pneuma Cohort in Manassas, VA is the best!
I was able to get all the aid I needed, the only thing that I can complain about is the fact that I only qualified for loans. Due to the fact that I am 25 and was working FT prior to going back to school I did not qualify for grants and a lot of scholarships, where as my friends who were working PT qualified. It wasn't like I was making a ton of money! I had enough to cover rent and living expenses.. I was making to much to qualify for help and not enough to have enough savings to pay for school out of pocket. This saddens me. I felt like I was getting the short end of the stick because I had worked 2 jobs so I could afford to live without government assistance.
