Transforming students lives with education and a Christian worldview.




Choosing where to engage in education for life and service is one of the most important DISCIPLESHIP DECISIONS A PERSON WILL MAKE. Regardless of the level of the degree, from diploma to PhD, it is a significant season in the development and spiritual formation for the student. 

If you are a potential student considering where you might attend school, a Nazarene institution is a VALUABLE CHOICE FOR YOUR EDUCATION AND CONTINUED DISCIPLESHIP. If you are a parent, pastor, teacher or friend offering counsel to a student considering where to go to school, I encourage you to recommend they consider our Nazarene institutions where students are intentionally nurtured as disciples of Jesus to engage in the mission TO MAKE CHRIST-LIKE DISCIPLES IN THE NATIONS.
