Curriculum Vitae

I have found that studying the great works of God in His biological realm is a constant source of wonder and surprise. To be able to study these things with younger brothers and sisters in Christ has been a great pleasure and priviledge. God graciously provides students with a variety of gifts for these studies and He has used our program to further develop and open up these gifts for a variety of areas of service in healthcare, education, research, creation care and industry.

You will find yourself equipped in wonder, mind, heart, imagination and hands-on skills to take up the work the Lord will call you to. Come join us!
