Located in Ridgeland MS, the institution is a non-denominational institution rooted in the Wesleyan Holiness tradition and has been equipping students with the knowledge and skills to communicate the gospel to a world that needs a Savior for 45 years. Students graduate with hearts passionate about God’s will, minds trained to understand God’s word, and lives ready to serve in God’s mission.
