Although the word “university,” may imply graduate training for higher institutional learning, the University has been established for the sole purpose of issuing credentials to men and women as certified, licensed and ordained professional ministers. Metropolitan Christian University is a subordinate ministry/auxiliary Metro Cathedral, which is filed with the IRS as an exempt church/educational ministry. With this status we may train, as well as license and ordain and commission Churches through one of the noted fellowships/reformations above indicated.
Our emphasis is not to achieve secular accreditation, although we issue degrees for ministry purposes only. Our mission is to equip the minister with practical education for his/her ministry. We continue in this practical path as the means of fulfilling the Great Commission of Jesus Christ.
Although accreditation is a totally voluntary decision, Metropolitan Christian University has decided to obtain membership and recognition form reputable Ecclesiastic organizations only. This provides MCU the liberty to design and offer courses that are spiritual, as well as practical.
