When you were a kid there was nothing more exciting than getting to go over to your best friend’s house. Take moment and think: what did your best friend’s house smell like? Every house has its own unique smell, and you probably don’t realize what your own house smells like because you’re used to it. But I bet you can remember what your best friend’s house smelt like, good or bad. Because if you ended up staying for any period of time in that house, you left with that smell on your own clothes. The truth is, you end up smelling just like the environment you came from.
Environment matters. You can get an education anywhere these days and technology has created so many opportunities that don’t even have to leave your house to get a good education! At Bethany College we offer a world-class education, but even beyond that we offer an environment where you can thrive.
This is an environment of worship. One of the core values of our church is worship. We are a worshipping church. We don’t just sing songs; we experience the presence of Jesus. Our students are constantly in a spiritual environment of prayer and worship- without exaggeration, every day of the week.
This is an environment of excellence. We aren’t trying to be the best at everything, but we are trying to be better today than we were yesterday. We celebrate wins, but we don’t rest on them. We believe we can always get better in every way. From the platform to the parking lot, and even in our homes, we are constantly looking for ways that we can better steward the life and calling God has given us.
This is an environment of mentorship. Sometimes you have done all that you know to do and still feel stuck. What do you need? You need someone with a voice of experience as a coach who can look in from the outside to help you make the next move. Our students are not far removed from the staff and pastors of Bethany Church. It is true that our staff not only shares the Word of God with our students, but also their lives.
