Opening This Fall!
September 2015 will mark the beginning of a new era in higher education in America! The first group of pioneering students will begin classes as the university and local church come together at the Coon Rapids, MN campus.
After months of preparation and prayer, the Lord is favoring His call to disciple the next generation. On Thursday evenings, students will meet as a cohort for 3-½ hours to experience community, Christ-centered education, and the mentoring of an academic pastor. Outside of class time, they will work part-time and take online courses through our partnership university, Waldorf College, in Forest City, Iowa.
During these once-a-week evening sessions, students will take three modules. First, career readiness. Students will grow in self-understanding of how they are wired, their aptitudes, their talents, and their strengths. This knowledge will shape career choices. Second, knowledge of God’s Word. The Genesis to Revelation module will focus on what the Bible says. Students will discover how their life story fits into the panoramic narrative of God’s story. Before living God’s truth, they must know it. Third, application of God’s truth. The bible has greatly impacted the shape of western civilization and America in the past. Students will wrestle with how they apply and live out God’s truths in the present in their personal lives and in society.
You can enter the Thursday evening cohort every eight weeks. If you're interested in more information, you can download our student guide. I'd be happy to talk more about our program over coffee. Call me or Cheri at 651-401-1045.
We are humbled and excited about this new beginning!
