Dr. Anna Parrott
MSU College of Theology
My heart is to disciple the nations with the firm foundation of the Living Word. When we have that strong foundation of the Word mixed with faith, we shall pursue, overtake, and recover all, (the enemy has stolen from us), and we shall enter our promised land. I have traveled to many nations and seen firsthand the hunger in the nations for a solid biblical teaching. My husband and I, Dr. Jorge Parrott, Director of Missions here at MorningStar, have researched and studied many schools and found the accreditation and degrees offered in conjunction with The North Carolina College of Theology equips us to prepare and release many in the US and abroad to be radical lovers of the Lord and His ways. Help us carry and release the prophetic fire for this season and see the fulfillment of the Great Commission. Join us for the greatest adventure.

Dean, MSU College of Theology
Nancy works in the Missions department at MorningStar and is the MSU Online Dean as well as the Dean of Theology.

It is a privilege to be a part of the building process of those who are seeking to grow in kingdom and establish a firm foundation in the Word of God. I am a part of an incredible team of people who honor each other and work together to see the Father’s passion fulfilled globally. We believe that revelatory study becomes a matter of the heart not just the mind, transforming the individual and thereby transforming the world around them.
