Giving with the Mission in Focus

In fulfilling its mission to thoroughly prepare followers of Jesus Christ to serve as pastors, missionaries, educators and lay-leaders, we recognize that the rewards for such service are eternal not financial. Therefore, we seek to minimize the cost to students, keeping tuition rates between 25% to 30% of the true cost of their education.  The remainder is made up via the support of God’s people, from one-time, regular to lasting gifts.  There are a variety of ways that you can support this ministry.
