Our Vision

Biblical Leadership for Community Care

Our Mission

To educate people of faith through a biblical approach to academic excellence, discipleship, and community collaboration that will equip them to positively impact their community.

Our Values & Guiding Principles

Discipleship

Christianity was founded over 2,000 years ago when Jesus established his ministry on earth. As part of the great commission, he told his disciples to go into all the world, baptizing in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, teaching them everything he told them to do. Our hands-on discipleship approach and scholarly biblical training is to equip you to understand what Jesus taught, and how to follow his great commission in today’s culture.
(John Mark Comer, Dallas Willard, J. Oswald Sanders)

Followership

Leadership research is moving away from “great leadership” toward follower focus. The followers are the ones who do most of the work and the ones who have their fingers on the pulse of the organization. Followership shows leaders how to be servant leaders and shows followers how to meaningfully contribute to the whole. Our core leadership courses walk you through the latest leadership research and give you the opportunity to implement servant leadership and followership into your leadership toolkit.
(Barbara Kellerman, Ira Chaleff)

Diversity

The more minds we can put together, the stronger we are. Jesus and the apostle Paul showed us again and again how important it is to be in unity and to love our neighbor. Research shows that diverse perspectives give us greater clarity. Our diverse staff, faculty, and student body brings a wide range of thought and experiences to the classroom in order to provide a holistic opportunity to learn from each other and build each other up.
(Derwin Gray, MLK, Jr.)

Resilience

A sound biblical and leadership education is designed to build effectiveness and resilience in your calling. Your ability to follow the call of God on your life is strengthened by the skills to stay in it for the long haul. Our curriculum combines important agility concepts such as tolerance of ambiguity and curiosity with strategic competencies for leadership such as listening to stakeholders and team building so that you will find effectiveness and resilience to gain success.
(Paula Caligiuri)

Community/Communal Learning

We are designed to do life in community. It’s one thing to learn academic facts, its another to discuss those facts in a community setting, surrounded by peers who want to help stretch your thinking and see you succeed. When you graduate from Seapointe, you have networking skills and a network of support to walk with you and help you navigate life and ministry. We are all called to ministry, whether it is our vocation or not. A biblical community of others standing with you will be that extra confidence you need to run your race.
(Deitrich Bonhoeffer)

Statement of Faith

  1. We believe that there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  2. We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
  3. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious atonement through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal and visible return in power and glory.
  4. We believe that man was created in the image of God, that he was tempted by Satan and fell, and that, because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely necessary for salvation.
  5. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by Whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life, and by Whom the church is empowered to carry out Christ’s great commission.
  6. We believe in the bodily resurrection of both the saved and the lost; those who are saved unto the resurrection of life and those who are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

Philosophy of Education

Seapointe College intends for students to leave the school with spiritual maturity, a passion for the local church and with excellent academic training.

Seapointe College intends to accomplish its mission through a rigorous academic program, mentoring and instruction by qualified professors, and the partnership of community leaders.

All students are required to complete core courses in general education, biblical studies and professional studies, as well as a series of specific internships, in order to provide well-rounded training that culminates in the awarding of the Bachelor of Ministry Degree. This structure allows students to achieve broad academic and practical outcomes that are important in every aspect of ministry and leadership.
