Thank you for visiting Calvary University!

Peter exhorts Christians to “prepare your minds for action, keep sober in spirit, fix your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ” (1 Pet 1:13).

There are many good ways to prepare, and a formal education can be a significant part of that preparation. As you work through the process of choosing a school, you have probably realized that there are multiple good options available to you.

Calvary is certainly not the only quality Biblically grounded university, but we would love to be the school you choose because we work very hard to provide undergraduate and graduate education which prepares Christians to live and serve in the church and the world according to the Biblical worldview.

For us, that means a commitment to excellence in helping you prepare for the action God has in store for you. No matter whether you are preparing for vocational ministry or simply preparing for a vocation – there is ministry action ahead for you, and we want to make sure you gain the knowledge and develop the skills and character you need to be effective and faithful in meeting present-day challenges.

In our striving for excellence, Calvary University provides a Bible-rich curriculum to ensure that every field of study is firmly rooted in the Biblical worldview. You will also find a welcoming community of staff, faculty, fellow students, churches, and community partners that are all happy to contribute to your growth and preparation at Calvary. Calvary’s music, drama, and athletic programs also reflect our commitment to excellence and will add depth and enjoyment to your time at Calvary.

Calvary is committed to continuing to grow and expand to meet our students’ needs, and just as we hope to help shape you, we look forward to your helping to shape us. We relish the opportunity to walk with you during this part of your journey.

May God bless you as you continue to walk with Him, and as you prepare for the action ahead!

Serving Him by serving you,

Christopher Cone, Th.D., Ph.D., Ph.D.
