The first goal I have is to understand the scriptures in the Bible and grow in my faith. When I started to look at colleges, I didn’t even think about attending a Christian college. I contacted a junior college in a nearby town to see what they had to offer me. By the grace of God, they recommend me to CCU. At the time that I enrolled, I didn’t realize that I would be required to take Bible classes. At first, I wondered
Academics, Attitude, and Effort are what I learned to help me achieve my targets in high school, and will be the same for college. What I want to experience at CBU is their immense amount of resources that will benefit me in a major or career that I want to
The most important (well second to a good education) I am looking to find in a college is a good community. My whole life I have grown up a Christian, I have been involved in my church for as long as I can remember and my family has always been very supportive when it comes to my faith. However, being a Christian in high school has been hard. I currently go to a small charter school, and although the peer pressure isn't as present as it would be in some big schools,
Lubbock Christian University Strategic Analysis Lubbock Christian University has had a vision set out for in since its founding by members of the Church of Christ in 1957. Those who took part in the founding of LCU based it on a hope that it would grow to be highly recognized in academics while it strived to put Christ above all. Today, LCU’s mission reads, “Lubbock Christian University is a Christ-centered academic community of learners, transforming the hearts, minds, and hands of students for lives of purpose and service”. LCU does a wonderful job of creating an atmosphere that is filled with an engaged community that aspires to build others up with the love of Christ, from both staff, professors, and students alike. It is in this environment
I have wanted a college education for many years, but haven’t known where to begin. Once I looked into Christian Colorado University (CCU) I knew I wanted to attend. I want to be a part of a community where I can earn an education while being able to share my faith in God with other students. I feel that being accepted into Christian Colorado University would be the first step in advancing my education, and my faith. I would like to be able to be a part of a university that allows me to learn academically, and strengthen my relationship with God. Overall, many experiences in my life have changed me. However, the miracles in which I witnessed at IHOP, has given me stronger faith. Now I am finally ready to begin my college education. I think attending a school where I can connect with others in terms of faith would be a blessing. I look forward to this journey and opportunity at CCU. I plan on pursuing Theology as a Major. My experience at IHOP led me to want to learn more about God. I have the confidence I need, the spirit of the Lord living within me, and I know that with God the impossible doesn’t exist. Thank you, Erika
Dallas Baptist University has been at the top of my college enrollment list for quite some time. I fell in love with the campus after my visit in November of 2015. The chapel was the number one thing that caught my eye. The beauty and the structure was just breath taking. I could see myself attending the services and worshiping along with newly made friends. I have been in contact with a current student at DBU, and she has been very helpful in answering my questions and encouraging me to attend the college. There are many reason why i would love to go to DBU. First, the school is very diverse, and it will be nice to see so many different personalities and cultutes around the campus. Second,
From the time I was in junior high, my grandmother had been telling me about College of the Ozarks and trying to convince me to attend the college. After much consideration, I decided to make College of the Ozarks my top priority when applying to colleges. The atmosphere of the college, the perfect distance from home, and the opportunity to work for my education were all major factors when making this decision. I had attended private Christian schools for most of my life, so the small campus and Christian values of College of the Ozarks appealed to me much more than the chaotic partying ways of a larger university. I knew if I attended College of the Ozarks, many of my classes would be more difficult than at a public university; however, I saw the difficult classes as an opportunity to learn more, which I believed would help me later in life. I also knew the professors at College of the Ozarks would be more caring and more willing to help than those at other colleges.
While attending Cal Baptist, I hope to gain a better understanding of the person I am, and continue to work on the person I wish to become. I believe college to be an opportunity to discover what you are capable of and what you didn’t know you were capable of
One of the key core values of the Christian Liberal Arts Curriculum is faith. It is incorporated into every aspect of the experience, yet it is not forced upon me. I am allowed to believe and explore the different religious denominations without getting the cold shoulder. I am
I believe Lewis University requires their students to take a theology class to help us better understand Christianity from a different point of view. They want us to explore things about religion that are beyond the norm. For example, we wouldn’t examine Gods existence in church, but in a theology class we will. The majority of students in the country attend public schools. In public schools we do not learn about a specific religion. Public schools are to diverse and there is a fine line on how much a school allows its teachers to teach. Lewis, being a Catholic and Lithuanian school has the ability to require students to take a theology class. They have the power to do so because when students enroll with Lewis they are aware that it is a
Without the strong Christian values upheld by Messiah College, it becomes incredibly difficult to walk the narrow road of Christianity during college. As a newly independent young adult, there is a constant stream of tough decisions to make in college. The dependence on classmates and friends increases throughout college, and I want to attend Messiah to surround myself with good influences and other people who share the same beliefs and principles that I wish to uphold in my own life. Non-Christian colleges cannot compete with the welcoming religious atmosphere that Messiah has to offer. Messiah College will be an excellent way to extend my faith into my education and learn how to bring Christ more into my life.
At this point in my life I feel that I am ready to begin to study for my career. For several years I have wanted to go back to school but wasn’t always one hundred percent sure what I was going to do. Through life experiences and working various jobs I am confident that Colorado Christian University will meet my needs as a student. I am also enthusiastic about attending classes such as Biblical Studies and Christian Leadership which will help me grow in my faith. I currently am teaching kindergarten Sunday School, and the biblical studies or Christian leadership class will help me in teaching the kids about The Bible. Completing a degree at Colorado Christian University will help me grow professionally and personally. By taking classes in the Health
I feel that CBU’s education and overall atmosphere will also help to grow my faith. I am a Lutheran and know that many of the other people I will encounter will have various religious backgrounds that differ from mine. These differences
For me, I have grown accustom to lowering my expectations for myself and others, and I do not want that to be the case in university. My highest expectations are definitely for my spiritual life. I went to Christian schools from Pre-K through eighth grade, and public school for high school, and while I had fun in high school, I will never forget how much more enriching it was to go to a Christian school. Therefore, spiritually I expect to be challenged constantly to grow my faith and put it into action. I want a degree of fellowship that only comes through going “through the trenches” with each other. I look forward to being surrounded by a cloud of witnesses, and seeing the Holy Spirit move in ways I can’t even
I would like to spend the rest years of my college experience here at Taylor, just for the reason of living inside the real Christian environment. My major is business and I think that if you mix business with liberal arts you will have a better view of the future when you have to make decisions for your company or whatever you have to do after college.
