Being the only Christian college in NWA, we can provide students with unlimited access to local volunteer programs and internships where they can immediately employ their classroom learning into their unique area of ministry.

Global Training

We provide our Ministry students with the opportunity experience a month long study-abroad program at locations across the globe (Great Britain, Ecuador and Poland so far.
