Our Mission

To develop students into confident communicators for the cause of Christ and His Kingdom

Our mission can be accomplished through teaching and encouraging students to first love God with heart, soul mind, and strength and then each other through practicing the “one anothers” mentioned in Scripture

“You don’t have to be great to start, you just have to start, to be great.”
