The Massey Leadership Center

At Mid-America, one way we fulfill our mission is through a network of strategic Centers that extend our reach beyond our walls and into places of influence across the nation and around the world.    The J.E. Massey Center for Ministry and Leadership reflects our commitment to not only train and educate pastors here on our campus, but also to be a worldwide resource to the church-at-large and especially to Church of God pastors and leaders.

Dr. Massey honored the Mid-America Christian University community May 5, 2012, by attending our Commencement Exercises, and by granting us the distinguished gift of name for our ministry, now known officially as the J.E. Massey Center for Ministry and Leadership. Through the Massey Center, MACU is proud to offer church leadership certificates and continuing education courses for today's leaders. These certificates can even translate into college credit! To learn more about leadership certificates through the Massey Center, click here

With his name, Dr. Massey also granted the university access to a collection of published and recorded works that will reside in the Massey Center, and which we are very pleased to make available to others online.
