Gap Year


The Gap Year is a one-year program that helps you discover where God is taking you in life, and helps you get there.


Mentors, instructional seminars, and learning experiences will guide you as you develop the knowledge, skill, and character essential for service and leadership in and outside church ministry contexts.


We partner with churches and missional organizations to mentor students in the program, so you can have a place to apply what you are learning, try new things, meet new people, and figure out what your next step in life will be after you lay foundations for a distinctly Christian life.


The Gap Year program is the first 6 outcomes (18 credits) of the Certificate in Christian Foundations and taken on a 0.6 time basis. All credits can be applied to the CCF, which requires students to take an additional 4 outcomes (12 credits).
