Educational Approach

Theologically Robust
So that we can understand and accurately teach God’s Word.

So that we can grow in our understanding of God, ourselves, and others.

So that we can explain and apply the word of God in a way that relates to our local context.

So that we can impact our church and communities with what we have learned in the classroom.
