We need your financial support and your prayers!

Join us in prayer for:

  • the Kingdom of God to be extended among all nations
  • the faculty and staff as they seek to prepare Christian leaders
  • students as they discern their calling in the world
  • the Spirit to guide the administration and board
  • financial provision to keep the cost of education low
