Students pursuing licensing in fields that often require a master’s degree from a regionally accredited school, such as Counseling or Social Work. It is because of this reason that City Vision does not offer master’s programs in these fields. As listed above, regional master’s programs to date have always accepted our bachelor’s degrees, but the decision is up to each individual school.
There’s a comic strip that I shared a while back called “How to Over-Spiritualize Everything” that makes the same point you make in your comments. We can, I can, have a tendency to make things sound more spiritual than they really are; however, we are also guilty of not realizing the spiritual significance in things that surround us because we consider it too mundane for God to care about.
In-N-Out Burger http://www.in-n-out.com/ also makes its founders' religious leanings part of its recipe. For instance, "John 3:16" appears on the bottom of soft drink cups, a reference to the Bible passage, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
Still, the owner, Doug Erickson, insists it is a religious company because, when it was failing and he thought about selling them off, he “gave it over to God” and now it makes money. “Erickson believes that his role as President and majority shareholder of the Dealerships is that of a steward of a business given to him by God and that his employees are God’s children who are entrusted to his care. He regards it as his religious duty to operate the Dealerships in conformity with his religious beliefs,” states the complaint. It also notes that he believes his company is a “marketplace ministry,” meaning he evangelizes to his employees and customers — a fact that I’m sure some of his customers would no doubt prefer to be made aware of before coming to shop.
Imagine for a second that you obtain an education becoming licensed as a general contractor and home-builder. You learn everything you need to know and have every feasible working knowledge and expertise as to what it takes to build a home. Well, you still have to buy materials, and supplies, as well as continuing education resources to learn masonry, and carpentry, and plumbing.
I highly respect those who subscribe to the school of thought that there should be nothing professional about Christian ministry. I understand where you’re coming from. I’ve read John Piper’s book, Brothers, We Are Not Professionals. It’s a great book. It reminds us that we’re not just here to analyze markets and produce numbers. I completely agree.
How many people obtain a University education, only to graduate and then become unable to find a job in their field of study? How many of those that do find a job end up busting their tail at a company that offers a measly $24,000 per year… just to “get into” their field of study via an entry level position… all in hopes of steadily receiving promotions, so that one day they make $50k to $100k? How many people get into serious debt for their college tuition, in the tens of thousands of dollars?

Many community colleges or state schools will advertise “free” or nearly free tuition. Historically, for City Vision students that have applied for a Pell grant, 79% have qualified. For students that receive a full Pell grant, the grant will pay all your tuition making the cost to the student only the cost of books (which is similar to many community colleges or state schools).
