Alumni Spotlight

Matt Cook (’17) lives in Corvallis, OR, but he is seeking to move to Australia as a missionary. He graduated with a completely online BS degree in Bible. Currently his family travels to various churches to raise support.  Matt shares that “the Bible training that I received at MBU was greatly useful in helping to prepare sermons, studies through specific books of the Bible and studies through specific topics that help in confidence in my current doctrinal positions. I appreciated the teaching styles of the various teachers as each shared their heart for the things of God. I hope to help with the establishment of a Bible Institute in the Outback, and I expect that my training and materials from MBU with help me in that process.
