So at The Light College, we have developed innovative practical degree courses, ministry training and short courses to equip people to to become bearers of good news in their families, networks, churches and communities. We want to see new churches started, old churches refreshed and countless disciples of Jesus.

Our Vision: To train, equip and connect pioneers and evangelists to go and make countless followers of Jesus.

I am still in some aftershock at the impression that it made on me, hugely impressive. The network of the churches, the scale of the project, the atmosphere within the building and the clear commitment to excellence, godliness, evangelism and mission were really outstanding, in my opinion.
