We equip men and women as they respond to God’s call on their lives. Whether it is in business, professional and volunteer ministry, or in life, all Christians are called to represent Christ in their spheres of influence. We help students to listen carefully as they look to discover God’s design for them, as they develop the heart, knowledge and skills needed for their profession.
