It is why faith is at the heart of all we do — in our classrooms, in our campus life, on our playing fields and in the many ministries in which we take part.
Here, faith and learning come together to make possible exciting careers as well as faithful, fulfilled lives. In a rigorous, yet supportive, learning environment, our students are challenged to grow both intellectually and spiritually.
And as a result, they leave here prepared to serve as Christ-like examples in workplaces, communities and churches all across the world. Students come to Olivet seeking a higher purpose for their life — and they find it. They believe. They become.
