These classes were taught by Dean Linda Holt.  Subsequently, Minister Constance Browning, and Tina Holt joined as faculty members on April 26, 2003 and the school grew in enrollment and staff.  The classes were originally held in the Mega Church meeting rooms and the Church Sanctuary. Classes moved to the Mega Church Annex on Prame Avenue in August 2004.  In February 2005, the first Spanish-language class, Hermeneutica Biblica, was offered and taught by Felix Muniz.  The Mega School of Theology Inaugural Commencement Ceremony was held on June 4, 2005 in the Mega Church sanctuary.  Seven graduates were presented.  The Commencement Speaker was Bishop Luther J.
