Milligan at Mountain

At Mountain, we have a mantra that reminds us to Stay Humble and Stay Hungry. And one of the many ways we tap into remaining humble and hungry is to be life-long learners. So, are you hungry for diving deeper into God’s Word and theology study? Do you enjoy connecting to Jesus through your intellect and learning from great teachers? Maybe you’re curious about certain topics, or you just love being in an environment with other disciples as we’re all on mission together, with humility and a hunger to grow in our leadership, understanding, and our walk with Jesus.

Everyone is invited to come and learn! Milligan at Mountain is designed for anyone who desires to grow spiritually and intellectually, to study the Bible, to be challenged in new ways, and the option of earning college credit just so happens to be a great bonus! 

What is Milligan at Mountain?

Milligan at Mountain classes offer a great opportunity to take a closer look at the Bible and discover its impact on the world around us… and you don’t have to be interested in receiving college credit to experience the full impact these classes have to offer! In partnership with Milligan University, “Milligan at Mountain” classes are full college courses (accredited and transferable) taught by Milligan University professors and Mountain Staff specifically for the Mountain community!

These courses can be audited (no need for homework or tests, just show up for the fun!) or taken for 3 credit hours (transferable to any university). Classes are available for a negotiated rate of $300 if taking for credit or $150 for audit. To inquire about scholarships, reach out to the Intern & Resident Coordinator, Liz Schilling at

How we got here. Where we’re heading. How you can be a part of it.

In this ministry seminar, practical sessions will examine the pulse of Mountain’s mission, theology, and ministry approach, and discover our rich heritage as part of the Restoration Movement, with plenty of time for discussion. Join Lead Pastor Ben Cachiaras and other staff to discover where we came from, where we’re heading, and how you can be part of it now, and leave a Jesus-shaped legacy for generations to come.
