The knowledge and resources I gained from this program made an immediate impact on my career. The biblical integration in my courses not only helped me open my heart to living a God-centered life, but left me with a desire to learn more.
I knew that I would learn about God and get an education, but never realized how awesome my instructors at Biola would be. Every one of them takes God seriously and demonstrates his love to students. The faculty here far exceeds other colleges — and I’ve been at five other schools.
Biola has instilled in me to trust that God is at mission with me in any interaction, decision making, or experience in the workplace, positioning me in such position where He is exalted and glorified.
