Jesus Christ gave us as Christians the Great Commission--to take the Gospel to all the nations. The Missions Track provides an initial equipping for students who sense a calling for cross-cultural missions.  The courses have a balanced mix of Biblical Studies, cross-cultural investigation and required experiences in a cross-cultural setting. Mission courses address the theology, history and strategy of cross-cultural outreach, using a combination of biblical study, anthropology and missiological considerations in order to help students focus their present and future calls to ministry.” 

Bible Day


The Pre-Seminary Track prepares students to pursue seminary training in preparation for professional ministry in a church vocation.  Students experience balanced preparation including courses in theology, philosophy, church history, and a practicum.
