    My college acknowledges the diversity of service in the Kingdom and seeks to enable students to discern their call and develop their unique gifts and character for a prevailing Church. My GPA was around 7. My college was accredited with the ABHE (Association for Biblical Higher Education). I had applied through an online application form and my application fees were around $100.

    Course Curriculum :

    My program of Intercultural Studies meets the growing need to prepare those who have work, life, and post-secondary education experience, and want to volunteer or work in a cross-cultural setting. My program prepared me for the mission field, assist them in meeting the criteria set out by individual agencies and increase their effectiveness as global workers. These experiences along with the potential for leadership development give the students hands-on experience and helps to build confidence for further cross-cultural endeavors.
