Our position in the religious world has been expressed in such time-honored slogans as these: “Where the Scriptures speak, we speak, and where the Scriptures are silent, we are silent,” and “No creed but Christ, no book but the Bible, no plea but the gospel, and no name but the divine.”

    • Salary will be competitive locally and commensurate with education/experience

Prepared for the World

“KCU was more than a University, it was also a home for me. Professors didn’t just worry about my grades, but
they knew about my life, provided counsel, encouraged me, and pushed me to grow. I felt that my education for
ministry was amazing and really helped prepare me for ministry. A lot of my spiritual mentors have come out of
KCU and also some lifelong friendships with fellow students. KCU might not be the biggest school, but it has one
of the biggest hearts.”
