Academics play an important role in the Mile Two program and all study is focused on learning about Jesus and how to become a better disciple of Him. Students will learn from instructors with a variety of church experience who are gifted at teaching the truths of Scripture in an understandable and meaningful way. Along with the study of Scripture, students will also practice daily spiritual disciplines such as prayer, worship, fasting and solitude with the intent of knowing God more deeply and drawing nearer to Him. Mile Two also focuses on carrying in-class knowledge into the real world where students can practice discipleship through experiential learning.
Students graduate with a Certificate of Discipleship from Providence University College and can earn university college credit that can be transferred toward future studies.
Spend time studying the Bible, individually and as a group as you seek out what the Scriptures said to the first readers and what it says for Christians today. During classroom instruction, students will immerse themselves in the Scriptures to wrestle with questions about faith and to better understand how God reveals Himself to us through His written Word.
Mile Two also focuses on carrying in-class knowledge into the real world where students can practice discipleship through experiential learning. As a Mile Two student you will live in community with your classmates, learn and serve in the urban and local settings, and travel to the Holy Land of Israel to see the Bible come to life.
Mile Two teachers come from a wide variety of denominations and ministry experiences. Among our gifted group of teachers are current faculty at Providence, pastors, para-church workers, missionaries and denominational leaders. Each one comes with a heart to follow Jesus and a desire to serve through teaching.
