I loved every moment I had at Heritage, and it was because of the knowledgeable and Christlike faculty that encouraged my work as a campus minister. This led to my service as a chaplain with the Alabama Army National Guard, and recent pursual of a Ph.D. Heritage will forever hold a special place in my heart and I look forward to what this great higher education institution will accomplish for the Lord.

I chose HCU because when I visited, it just felt right. I liked the smaller classes and it felt like a good place to learn and grow spiritually. Now I can say it has been just that. It didn’t take long to realize that the students, as well as the faculty, were something special.

The credentials that I received from HCU, including your accreditation, set me apart in this incredibly competitive group. From the letters of recommendation to the formatting and information on the transcripts, every curveball the Army threw, HCU was flexible and speedy in their response. I am blessed beyond measure and am ready to take on this good work.

Cody PeeryM. Min. Student

I chose HCU because of the flexibility and reputation. I am constantly on the go with ministry, being a husband and a father, so I need a university that is flexible as well as one that does an adequate job helping me to become the best minister I can be. Also, the cost of attending Heritage allows me the opportunity to receive valuable training without gaining tremendous debt.
