Learning Lifestyle is a continuing process. Thoughts and feelings must be centered in Kingdom values and priorities. Mind, body, and spirit must continue to learn how to filter all of life through the lens of Christ. Every course and activity seek to pursue the subject by examining course and activity content in light of the ministry of Christ as expressed in Scripture.
Servant Leadership means learning to take up the towel. Every privilege carries its responsibility. Every position has its purpose. Servant Leaders for God’s Kingdom must learn to use every possible opportunity and influence to serve His ends by His means. Every avenue of service will be presented and examined from this perspective.
World Christian Vision is involving oneself in relevant, global ministry means seeing the world from God’s Kingdom perspective. Cross-cultural and international service is based upon the model of engagement demonstrated by a creative and relational triune God incarnated in the person of Jesus Christ.
