Community Life

Community Life

Here, you’re prepared for ministry not just in the classroom, but in community, by developing:

  • Habits of study, prayer, reading, health, and fellowship alongside peers
  • Fellowship through events, worship, groups, and service
    (Distance-learning students don’t miss out—we provide these activities when you are on campus.)
  • Relationships in a close-knit environment. Your classmates and professors will be supporters, encouragers, and prayer warriors through your years of ministry service.

Our location on North Park University’s campus allows us unique resources and advantages.
