Relationally-Centered – One of our program goals is to help the student make personal applications to their lives. With an authentic understanding and practice of the Bible, a student will be able to care for others by (1) modeling the life of Christ before others and (2) providing wise, scriptural guidance so others can appropriately imitate the student. (See Ephesians 5:1; 1 Corinthians 11:1; Philippians 4:9).
Church-Centered – Because we believe every Christian is a disciple, and the best place outside of our homes for sanctification to take place is the local church, we aim to train the student to do soul care in such a way that they can practically impact their local churches through discipleship care while bringing much joy to their leaders (Hebrews 13:17).
Christ-Centered – We believe Christ speaks to all of life, but many Christians are unaware of connecting the gospel to their day-to-day lives. We aim to serve the body of Christ by helping our students to perceive, understand, and make those gospel connections. The practical elements of this program are the hardest for each student but the most rewarding.
