In Luke 10:2 Jesus says
"The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field."
Lifehouse College provides an opportunity to grow in God's word through academic studies, and develop practical ministry skills through our ministry training programs.
We believe that by practically equipping students in these areas they can become the workers that Jesus talked about to reach their cities.
