How do we BUILD A LEADER?
Jesus as an Example
We like to follow Jesus' method of building leaders. The way that Jesus trained several ordinary men to be very influential leaders was through a process called discipleship. The bible often talks about Jesus and his disciples, and we know that he was with these guys constantly and that he taught them many things while he was with them.
Time and Relationships
Again imitating Jesus, we believe that it is very important to spend a lot of time building relationships with students. We know that most college students are skeptical of people that believe in Jesus, therefore it is crucial to earn their trust and their friendship. As a result, we often end up making some wonderful friends that stay in contact long after graduating from college.
Our organization is not just for those who believe in Jesus. We like to spend time with students from many different spiritual backgrounds and help them explore their spiritual value. For those that decide to follow Jesus, we then begin to help them build a solid foundation on which they can continue to build for a lifetime. Next, we help them learn how to pass on their valuable spiritual discoveries to other people. All of this happens on the campus and in the context of interpersonal relationships. Rather than pulling them out of campus life and into a classroom, we view campus life as the classroom.
It Doesn't Stop at Graduation
Our vision for a student doesn't end on graduation day. In fact, that is where it begins. Our official vision statement is Glorifying God by Building Laborers on the Campus for the Lost World. This vision is for the world, and our desire is to send graduates into many different spheres of life to be well-rounded leaders - thereby reaching the world through building leaders on the college campus!
