Vanguard Partners

When you are a Vanguard Partner you help us build into the lives of people. Think about all the people in your life who helped you along the way. Nobody is self-made; we all need each other. That is God’s design for community, ministry and growth. Vanguard Partners enable us to use their gifts in the ways we need to be effective in accomplishing God’s vision for the College. Generally speaking, we need general giving!

When you become a Capital Partner you make sure we have facilities and property that are effective and efficient to carry out this ministry. Whether you give to develop existing property, to acquire student housing, or to keep our facilities beautiful and inviting, your capital investment is not just a brick and mortar purchase - it is always about the people who fill our spaces!

Scholarships & Bursaries

When you boil it down to who we are - everything on which we spend money is about helping our students get the best education in the best environment to prepare them for ministry: as a pastor in the church or as a follower of Christ in the trades or a profession. Every dollar we spend helps us build up people for the kingdom of God. Scholarships and bursaries enable us to offer quality Christian education in a way that does not place a heavy burden of debt on people who are surrendering their life to be used by God. That is a worthwhile cause!
