The House System

The purpose of the House System is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ by equipping students to serve the church and fulfill the Great Commission by cultivating student communities that foster: Great Commission living, academic excellence, community identity and enduring friendships.

Involvement in the House System shapes virtually every aspect of our student experience. We currently have four houses named after great leaders in the Christian faith: Andrew Fuller, George Liele, Adoniram & Ann Judson and Francis Schaeffer.

The Houses are led by students and driven by our mission to equip students to serve the church and fulfill the Great Commission. Students will build close friendships, grow spiritually, academically and have plenty of fun!instagram

The House Leadership Team helps to accomplish this in three ways:

  1. The House Leadership Team serves as a resource. They aid students as they transition to campus, answer questions, direct students to appropriate departments, assist with roommate conflicts, handle emergency situations and listen to students with concerns.
  2. The House Leadership Team also holds students accountable in many areas of their personal life including academics, spiritual growth, time management and encouraging students to make wise personal choices that will glorify God. In addition, the House Leadership Team keeps students accountable for respecting college property and abiding by Housing policies.
  3. The House Leadership Team builds community and provides opportunities for students to get connected with fellow students. The House Leadership Team provides a variety of programs and encourage students to attend other campus events.

Fuller

Fuller

Andrew Fuller was a renowned English Baptist theologian and missionary advocate. Although he had no special ministry training, his talent for exposition led the Baptist Church at Soham to call him as their pastor, where he remained for several years until God called him to pastor a church in Kettering. While the works of Baptist and Puritan authors influenced Fuller, he is well known for ultimately looking to the Scriptures for his theological convictions. His writings inspired many during his time, including his close friend William Carey. Fuller became one of the founders of the Baptist Missionary Society and also served as its secretary. As Carey became the first missionary, Fuller directed and maintained the work at home, tirelessly promoting the society and its missionary efforts.

Judson

Judson

Adoniram and Ann Judson became the first American Baptist international missionaries, giving their lives to see the people of Myanmar (Burma) reached with the gospel. Adoniram’s call to missions closely followed his conversion, and together with other seminary students, Adoniram influenced the formation of America’s first mission board. After he and Ann married, they made their way to Myanmar, where Adoniram spent the next 38 years of his life. Both the Judsons devoted themselves to learning the Burmese language, leading Adoniram to translate the Bible into Burmese. Before her death at the early age of 37, Ann made a lasting impact as a missionary. She cared deeply about education for Burmese girls and began a school for them where they learned the gospel. The faithfulness of the Judsons resulted in the establishment of a native Burmese church and several Burmese people coming to faith.

Liele

Liele

George Liele was born into slavery in Virginia and became a Christian in 1773. He had a deep concern for the souls of his fellow slaves and was ordained as a missionary to them in 1775. Liele and many other slaves sided with the British during the Revolutionary War, along with Liele’s owner, Henry Sharp, who granted Liele his freedom in 1778. Liele evacuated the United States after the war with his family and sailed to Jamaica. He soon became a missionary to the Jamaican people, seeing hundreds baptized and organized into churches. He caught the attention of slave owners and the government, and was put in prison several times for causing a disturbance among the slaves. By 1814, Liele’s influence resulted in an estimated 8,000 Baptists in Jamaica.

Schaeffer

Schaeffer

Francis Schaeffer was an American theologian, philosopher and pastor who promoted historic Protestantism instead of the modern approach to theology of his day. He believed that Christian apologetics could answer the questions of modern society and established the L’Abri community in Switzerland where people seeking answers to life’s questions could come and find their answers in the truths of Scripture. Schaeffer is best known for his unique ability to communicate biblical truth coupling intellectual integrity with love and care. He was deeply committed to Christ and worked hard to understand modern thought and how Scripture answers life’s biggest questions.
