These specific areas of study will be taught by experts in the field and emphasize educational components that inclde classroom participation, project assignments and serving opportunities.

This track is taught and led by many esteemed instructors from Fuller Seminary, Azusa Pacific University and Life Pacific College. In this track, students will learn a broad spectrum of biblical knowledge and be able to successfully articulate and integrate biblical truths into their personal journeys in Christ.
