About Heritage Christian University
Heritage Christian University exists to help Christians answer God's call to ministry. We do that by offering a balanced, comprehensive, practical education that impacts the whole person. We make it our aim to:
o Challenge students academically
o Enhance their passion for ministry
o Strengthen their skills for service
Our courses in Bible and doctrine provide a foundation for life-long spiritual growth. They demand rigorous study and careful thought, and they are always taught with practical ministry in mind. Each teacher is an active, faithful, mission-minded Christian.
We recognize that the kingdom needs well-rounded, thoughtful leaders, so for balance and depth, we provide general instruction in the humanities: English, literature, speech, history, psychology and philosophy. In an increasingly educated society, cultural literacy is expected, and polished communication skills are essential.
You will be challenged by a rigorous academic program, but in addition, you will be encouraged and required to apply what you learn in real-world settings because Real-World Ministry is the heart of our academic program. That is the distinctive focus of Heritage Christian University.
Our courses in professional studies are more than just classes. Field trips and hands-on assignments combine with weekly Christian service and biannual evangelistic campaigns to give each student real-world experience in ministry. Such learning opportunities are under the direction of faculty members who have exemplary records in evangelism. These real-world experiences for students build confidence, sharpen skills, and make each class more purposeful and real. Real-World Ministry-that's who we are.
