The most significant thing I learned were lessons of character. Lessons that are knowledge-based can be incredibly valuable in and of itself and can be easily learned. Lessons of character are hard to come by and can’t be learned simply by knowing what to do. Character is usually learned by experiences, especially difficult and trying ones…but I consider them extremely valuable. -Joseph Kim, Yale University, Huntsville, AL


God created this world with a glorious plan and He chooses to use His people, trained and available people, to carry out His redeeming work in this world.

Are you looking to soak up all that God has planned for you? Do you want your life to count for something? Would you like to influence the world for the cause of Christ? Do you desire to attain more knowledge?  Would you like to catch God’s dream for His people and make it your own? Would you like to make life-long friends that will change the world with you?

What if we told you that investing 0.001% of your life can change 99.999% of your life?

This world needs godly, creative leaders who will meet the unprecedented challenges this world faces and help make this world a better place for the glory of God.  We invite you to step up to that challenge.
