We just finished a our last few courses for the year. During the month of November, we offered three intensive four-week long courses with around 40 students in attendance. Personally, I enjoy having fewer students around the school as I have the opportunity to grow closer to them. I had the opportunity to get to know some of the students better. Some have started attending our Sunday worship services, and we have also scheduled a small group Bible study for the weekends starting in January.
One of the emphasis for the next year will be small group contact between professors and students. We have a good number of people from the community meeting the church for the first time through the school. The challenge now is learning about each individual’s needs, and where they are in their spiritual journey. We plan to train our staff to have an open heart and an eye out for students who are seeking a deeper relationship with their Creator.
