In the classroom, you will discover biblical teaching to transform your heart, habits, and mind. The professors bring to each class a wealth of hands-on experience in ministry, strong academic qualifications, and personal concern for each student. They will lovingly challenge and support you along the journey. They will pray with you and encourage you.

As we join together in following the Lord Jesus Christ, let us invite the Holy Spirit into the classroom to lead us in becoming the people He has called us to be.​
