Review updated:

Missionary Chapel And Seminary claimed that they can help me to get high school diploma. I filled quick test for 5 minutes and they asked me to pay $40 for the diploma. This looked very shady and I decided not to put in my details. So, I just closed the website. I am not 100% sure about their business but it seems to me that there is nothing good concerning this diploma. Don’t become their victim.

    Just for those who say "not ligit" or "fake" etc... haven't a clue, sorry. The hypocrisy is outrageous, and actually a little comical, to say the least. I've seen "accredited" University's hand out expensive Honorary Diplomas, sold to the highest bidder, perhaps donate a few million for a new wing on the gymnasium, a new science department. I am a University grad and they are a disgrace when it comes to the teaching of Christianity and Christ. I can only hear about the Darwinian Evolution orthodoxy for so long. Missionary Chapel and Seminary is ligit, with a ligit non-profit business license in Nevada sooooo NO ONE CAN TELL YOU OTHERWISE, Haters and jealousy will always be.

    I did a thesis of more than 30 pages in order to obtain a valid and interesting transcript.
    In addition, the online library is rich and allows you to see ideas for writing the thesis. The distribution of biblical texts into categories is well done. Bravo for this open and very democratic school.

    The online seminary is a wonderful school. The student has to pass tests or write a thesis to obtain a diploma or degree. And the library has great books on the subjects taught. keith r. Church Musician

    I became an ordained minister through Missionary Chapel & Seminary and is a legitimate & honest ministry with a Christian church & Bible Seminary. I have earned Bible degrees up to Doctorate level at other Christian colleges. The Bible is the Bible & algebra is algebra, the same material earned at different locations is pretty much the same thing. Missionary Chapel & Seminary offers study materials for Adult style learners in their online library. It is very in-depth & detailed. The ministry allows a person to enter their ministry calling without a lot of barriers & red tape. The degrees listed are honorary and are legitimate for spiritual ministry, as people from many walks of life have decades of church Sunday School teaching, pastoral counseling, nursery ministry or music ministry experience & the degrees speak of lifetime experience (educational, employment, ministry, teaching, etc.) to the Christian community. I have had excellent relationship with the ministry of MCS, and those wanting to succeed in ministry have a gold mine of opportunity to serve the Lord with assistance from MCS. Sincerely, Rev. Kevin Rogers, Th.D, pastoral counselor & chaplain (of years experience).

    This is a good school that affords people the opportunity to translate their academic and Bible knowledge into a working Biblical framework. One would have to understand the concept of the ministry in order to appreciate it. To downplay its significance is to acknowledge this might not be the ministry for you.

    If you are looking for a strictly secular academic program, why waste your time putting up a negative comment. They have in no way misrepresented themselves. The ministry is very clear about who they are and what their purpose is.

    Let's not be snobbish, let's be grateful.

    I don't know how valide the church charter is as of now because I just searched the tennessee corporations website and found that they the article of incorporation was dissolved this year 2018, under the conditions section it's saying permanently. Sooo that sux I would have soo I have been a director for various non profits and I know how to through a meen fundraiser. Church organizations are automatically considered non profit by the IRS if you fit the criteria so there is no need to fill and pay a fee for recognition of tax exempt status therefore I would have been able to start a fundraiser for what i'm trying to start as a legit non profit and I would have totally been happy to make a donation to keep it going out of my reasonable compensation for services of cours. I hope they figure that out unfortunately this was another website and study that led me to a dead end. But hay the diplomas are cool.

    It may be unacredded but so are some home schools. You can give the diploma and transcript to to a colleague and they must let you take a college placement exam, if you pass the college placement exam your in college, so, yup! That's pretty valuable for about 20 bux.

    This is a legitimate website and they clearly spell out everything in the simplest of terms.
    #missionarychapelandseminary are acting a in #Blessed manner helping people.
    I find people who spend all their time running around screaming fake and fraud to be sad little sheeple.
    You are buying into old thinking and really being silly.
    Are Udemy and Teachable FAKE just because they teach but dont offer degrees?
    Is a college that offers Honorary Degrees fake? No way.
    Stop being boring and attacking a good organization and go learn something new.

    It is legit high school. I got into DeVry University with it. No problem!
    The Saint Gregory Vocational Highschool is in Hemet, California.
    The diploma is like home school, so when applying give the college your full info as a school in Hemet, California. Tell them it is a home school diploma. It worked for me. I now attend DeVry.
    Also Penn Foster College accepts it too when using the info. Good luck! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ€

I'm not Going to play ignorant and understand I did not go to school for years. I merely took the course online completed the tests and pass the valuations needed to be able to gain the certificate. As of right now I'm satisfied with the product

    I phoned the Secretary of State of Tennessee, and its all Fine with MCS, They make it clear the and Degrees are Honor's they do supply the study manuals which you now can study and actually you will have THE Th.D. level once you have run through the study material so be glad they did not oblige you to do the Exams as well after all its Gods Calling ... I will order my Degrees as well I have completed 2 Honor's by submitting the Theses now I am Studying the Actual Material and its unto standard.

    Missionary Chapel and Seminary provides some very helpful services. For example, they provide free books on-site for Ministry, Christian counseling, and other topics. The ones I investigated were mostly full-length books (150-450 pages) written by qualified, well-known people who are generally considered experts in their field. Their HONORARY degrees are clearly identified as being HONORARY in nature. This is not the same thing as an earned degree from a regionally accredited school. That is why it is called HONORARY. By the way, many leading regional schools also award people with honorary degrees for life experience or generous donations. According to BBC News Nov. 22, 2015, across England 117 universities awarded 957 honorary degrees in 2014 alone. In the USA, Harvard, Notre Dame, Princeton, Yale, Emory, Brigham Young, Bates, Rutgers, University of Tennessee, Brown and Berkeley, all award Honorary degrees. No one questions their legitimacy. Now no one is suggesting that MC&S belongs in the same discussion with Harvard or Yale. But the point is that honorary degrees given for life experiences, accomplishments and / or generous donations has been an accepted practice in quality schools at least as far back as the 1700. An Honorary Degree will not be accepted at a regionally accredited school as an earned degree. That doesn't mean it is worthless. It gives people a way to capture their life contributions in an organized manner (similar in some ways to a Resume). Seminaries do not have to defend their choices for honorary recipients. Some of the most giving and influential ministers are known only within their smaller circles. But that doesn't mean they aren't worthy of some recognition. Who says only wealthy politicians, actors and musicians can be honored? Finally, it needs to be recognized that quite a few legitimate Christian colleges, universities and seminaries elect not to be regionally accredited, so that they can maintain their independence and/or to maintain a clear barrier between church and state. Being unaccredited for these reasons does not necessarily say anything about an organization's legitimacy. If MC&S has misrepresented their services, they can certainly be criticized for it. But I didn't see any misrepresentation while on the site myself.

    They are helping people with bible knowledge and christian life experience to get formal diplomas and then being accepted in the work market (even some states don't recognize the diplomas). There is nothing wrong in their process. If you can pass the exam, you are qualified, why not?
    I haven't subscribe my self yet, but am thinking in do it. At the meantime, would like to share that I found their address, founder, and formal business registration ... looks very serious organization, only the philosophy is quite different than what we see around. See below:

    here are facts. MCS does not give fake degrees.. here is an insert from their terms of services "MissionaryChapel.com does not warranty the recognition or acceptance of its services and/or offerings by any agency, public or private. It is your duty and responsibility to obtain agreements of acceptance prior to making your purchase and using any degree or certification material earned or purchased through this site. All degrees and certifications we offer are honorary, for use exclusively within your ministry, and subject to the acceptance of the recognized authority within your religious organization. Acceptance of this agreement grants you membership in our church. Dual membership is completely recognized and allowed with any other Christian church, and does not constitute conflict with MissionaryChapel.com membership. Some Canadian provinces do not accept our minister credentials as sufficient to allow the holder to officiate marriage ceremonies."

    The diplomas and degrees granted by this institution are not legitimate, and in many states, using them on job applications, for promotions, or for business purposes is illegal. Places like this are referred to as degree mills, where little to no course work is required, and many of the programs are based on "life experience". Normally, I would not direct anyone to do research via Wikipedia, but in this case, you can see for yourself what the degrees/diplomas on this site are actually worth: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diploma_mills_in_the_United_States

    MCS along with St.Gregory's Vocational academy are completely legitimate. The high school diploma I earned through their program got me into an honest to goodness brick and mortar bible college and I couldn't be more pleased or excited. Their program has truly been a god send and a blessing, not only in the progression of my life but my walk with the lord.

    I am currently a student with this school. I was skeptical as I have been with other churches but their educational materials are incredibly detailed and educational. I have completed my hs diploma in Australia but as I plan to live in America I figured it is going to be important to have a written GPA (which I didn't do) comparing the two while the hs diploma with this school can be quicker to get the amount of work you do in a regular secular school is actually more then what is expected as a minimum. Their theological/counselling courses are incredibly detailed and their teachings are fair and consistent with other theological type schools I have attended. I have not yet paid for any of the courses as I wish to complete all of them while I save for the fees but I have never heard of anyone not receiving what they paid for.
    I do like the fact that you can learn the material and only pay when you pass. It is nice to see what your getting yourself into before you pay for a course then become overwhelmed when you see the work load. The courses are cheap because you don't have a teacher working with you which makes it hard for people who may struggle understanding concepts but I upload my work onto the internet and get others I know to correct my work for me which really helps and provides a community so necessary in a christian community.
    I don't agree with everything in the counselling courses that is taught because their beliefs differ to mine but I still find their belief system consistent to the christian community.
    Personally I think the 40 dollar charge after the test may be a glitch in the coding but I am not sure neither I recommend trying again and seeing if it happens.

    Missionary Chapel and Seminary (MCS) high school diplomas are only $29.95 plus 5.00 shipping and handling. I think that is well worth the price for a HS diploma. It is not too high a price to pay. It is free to take the high school test. If you pass, pay the low fee and in about a week you have a diploma. I think they are not fake although I have not tested them to see. I have researched this site and have found zero actual complaints. There is nothing bad about MCS anywhere on the net. There is nothing good either actually for that matter. No news is most often good news. The only drawback I have with MCS is that they do not have a phone number for contact, nor do they have a writable address. I find that some strange. You can email them from their site though. I have not done that yet, but will in the future. As of this date I have actually acquired two Doctorate degrees with diplomas via writing a dissertation for each. And I have acquired a masters, a bachelors, and an AA degree by writing a thesis for each. The two doctorates are of a very professional quality. I have not purchased the other degrees as yet, but I am positive they are just as professional looking and functional. I have an ordination, church charter, and letter of good standing with MCS also. My opinion is that MCS is not a fake school or ministry, however I could be wrong I guess. Sincerely, Rev Dr Bill Cousins
