US News and World Report has again ranked Anderson University among the best universities in the Midwest offering master’s level degree programs.

Sanders told them Saturday to retain their Christian values while forging their new careers and building their post-collegiate lives. “Prophetic citizens are not gullible; they are not easily deceived,” said Sanders, senior pastor of the Third Street Church of God in Washington, D.C., since 1997. “Prophetic citizens don’t suspend their outrage when people in high places do the wrong thing. “They see hospitality as a virtue, not a burden.”
