Institute of Religion


Institute is a safe haven from the pressures, trials, and challenges of the world. Education is not really complete without the study of religion. That's why religion courses are provided so you may gain an increased knowledge and conviction of the gospel of Jesus Christ along with your technical and academic education. It is suggested to take one religion class each semester.
