Our innovative program, offered through the Center for Compassion, educates and equips students to deliver and lead compassion-based care that elevates and empowers the lives of the impoverished, hungry, and hurting. The program provides practical training to prepare you to deliver humanitarian care based on a foundation of God’s compassion and to apply biblical theology to the practice of humanitarian care.
You will learn how to be effective in a variety of domestic and international settings, including nonprofit leadership, volunteerism, disaster response, holistic self-care, community development, public policy, partnership cultivation, and advocacy. Our experienced professors will provide guidance and mentorship as you discover your calling.
A capstone internship with a non-profit organization specializing in community relief and/or development will provide real-world experience and training. Combine your passion for a helping profession with your faith as you pursue career opportunities.
