Classes, projects, extracurricular activities and the environment are carefully chosen and developed to grow and prepare every student for their future ministry.
Students spend a large part of the day in a classroom environment. They learn theology and are introduced to practical tools for their future ministry. Below is a description of each class.
Every morning starts with prayer. This is one of the most significant parts of the program, and for many students the highlight of their time at the school. This time is set aside to cultivate ones relationship with God and be filled with the Spirit.
Each student participates in one of several evangelical projects. Here students learn to minister to people outside of church.
Students participate in a range of other activates that are not described above. Students visit churches, participate in small ministry projects, read the bible, play sports, have time to relax and much more.
During the course of the study students will participate in a short term (one week) trip to Mexico. Upon graduation students will be sent to a medium term (4-6 month) missionary trip to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Long term (6 months or more) trips are not part of the program, but opportunity exists for students that want to do more for the Kingdom.
