You’ll be challenged to think critically and strategically.

  • “I enjoyed the reading and the use of videos. It helps to have a somewhat live person introduce the chapters since there is not a live viewing of lectures. The overall format was very conducive to a busy lifestyle involving family and work.”


    Rayvelyn Swift


  • “Throughout the weeks that I have participated in the course, I have been able to focus on the scripture in a concentrated way. I have never read through the NT so quickly. The course provided me the motivation and the structured guidance that I needed as I took on the adventure to study the NT in such an in-depth way. I have learned so much that I had never known about the first-century world of Jesus’ day. “


    Sally Smiley


  • “I am a Bible nerd and loved the historical/cultural aspects highlighted throughout the course. These go hand in hand in order to better understand God’s word.”


    Debbie Piffaut


  • “I have a greater appreciation for what elements of the New Testament mean and how the people portrayed in the books relate to each other”

Now located 40 minutes west of the Twin Cities, we offer on-campus, online undergraduategraduate degree programs and more. We have 16 NCAA Division III athletic teams, internship opportunities, and summer outreach programs around the globe. Though a lot has changed, our dedication to helping students grow in their faith has not.
