By learning about Christianity from a global perspective and focusing on the 10/40 window, this program will give you the opportunity to challenge yourself to respond to God’s call and be a part of His vision.

This two credit*, integrative seminar explores issues of identity, community, and vocation, drawing upon philosophical, sociological and theological sources. Students will design personally tailored research plans for exploring their gifts and sense of calling and then complete their plans alongside their progress through course readings and lectures.

Memory Verse of the Week

Prayer Request & Praises

  • Thank the Lord for the recent developments in Ukraine. The rebels and Ukrainian government have exchanged prisoners. This marks a positive move towards forwarding their ceasefire amid much tension between the nations regarding this matter.
  • Prayer for the children abducted in South Sudan and for there to be peace from these international and political conflicts
  • Thank God that He has kept us safe throughout this frigid weather. Pray for others who are not as fortunate in the cold.
  • May we continuously give thanks for all the things we have received from God for they are all good (1 Timothy 4:4).

In Christ,

Stephen & Jevon
