What do a renowned heart surgeon, a political analyst, a
celebrated Christian musician and a megachurch pastor have in common? Let’s
meet them and see.
Meet Jim Long, prominent heart surgeon and graduate of
Evangel University. Meet Nathan Gonzales, a political analyst in Washington,
D.C., and graduate of Vanguard University. Meet Natalie Grant, contemporary
Christian music sensation and graduate of Northwest University. Meet John
Lindell, pastor of James River Assembly of God in Ozark, Mo., and graduate of
Central Bible College.
For the answer, take the next step. What do Evangel,
Vanguard, Northwest and Central Bible College have in common? They are all
Assemblies of God institutions of higher learning.
These four very different individuals came to excel in their
diverse professions, yet they were all rooted in Assemblies of God schools,
proving that Assemblies of God institutions of higher education can lay the
foundation for a limitless future.
God has a plan for you — read Jeremiah 29:11-13. He
knows where you will be going to college. He knows where you will be employed
someday. He knows whom you will be working with. He even knows how much money
you will be making. God’s perfect plan for your life just might include
attending an AG college or university — no matter where your career might
ultimately take you.
An Assemblies of God education has been a valuable component
of preparation for many today who serve humanity in all kinds of roles and
Your college degree will blend with your talents, skills,
work ethic, morals and intelligence to prepare you for your chosen career
— the one God has chosen for you. Consider how an Assemblies of God
education has helped individuals like those mentioned above make a significant
impact, and ask God if such an education just might help you do the same.
