Our staff and faculty come from a diversity of backgrounds and consider serving Christ a rich privilege and serious responsibility. By God’s grace, they seek to blend serious doctrinal study with real-life application. Selected because of their theological commitment blended with years of service, our professors and lecturers provide rich instruction seeking to equip students with a solid foundation for a lifetime of ministry.

Opportunities for student/faculty interaction and fellowship are found in chapels, special lectures, and conferences. Most importantly, our smaller class sizes and regular extra-classroom interaction permit deep relationships to be built. We are grateful to God for the team He has assembled to serve “according to Christ.”
