The 2019 graduating class of The Master’s University completed their educational journey Friday when they crossed the stage and accepted their degrees from school leaders at Cougar Stadium.
Prior to President John MacArthur’s final commencement ceremony as president of the local Christian university, smiling faces sprinkled the crowd as students posed for pictures with loved ones.
Shortly after, students would partake in a traditional procession across the football field in their black caps and gowns that donned the various honors they’ve received during their time on-campus.
Following hymns, musical acts performed by students and a speech from Board Member Robert Provost, MacArthur took the stage after a standing ovation to inform the graduating class of their worth.
“Christians are the most critical people in the world. We are the only hope because we possess the truth,” MacArthur said, speaking on the marginalization of his faith and the barriers to success. “May you go and see the hand of God using you in ways that you never ever imagined.”
