No need for cars. Students travel together in the 15-seater vans owned by the school. The travel expenses are covered by your tuition payment. 

 

What is our schedule like? Will I have time to work and / or hangout on weekends?

The next month of student life will be quite busy with many activities including: lectures, ministry opportunities, workshops, trips, fellowship, and adventures. There will not be time to working since the schedule will be booked and eventful. 

 

Can my family visit me? Can I take trips home?

Although being a student on the program is a commitment and will keep you quite busy most days, we would love for you to see your family, and we would especially love to meet them as well. We just ask that you speak with staff for what weekend you plan to be away or when family will visit. See rules for more details.

We have a dedicated team of staff that reside with the students and offer daily prayer support and counsel. They keep the goal of bringing the gospel to each student and equipping them as future ministers and missionaries. Just as in the Book of Acts, together we learn to grow in the Christian doctrine, abide in fellowship, break bread, and pray consistently.
