Preparing Servants

Preparation for ministry doesn't just happen in the classroom; it happens as we live our daily lives. Our students take the gospel from the boulevard to the bayou by serving our communities.


Who Walk with Christ

President Dew often says that the most important thing we will do every day is seek the Lord. Through chapel, prayer groups, and other outlets, we lead our students to walk with Christ each day.


Proclaim his Truth

One of the most tangible ways we proclaim the gospel is through our Caskey Center. Our Caskey Center not only provides resources for smaller membership churches, but also offers scholarships for students serving in those contexts.


And Fulfill his Mission

Everything we do is aimed at fulfilling the mission of Christ. Whether its giving our students opportunities to serve on missions trips or our partnerships with the IMB and NAMB, we are committed to taking the gospel from the parishes to all peoples.
