City of Life School of Ministry

It has been our long-held dream to provide a formal program at City of Life Church where young men and women who feel a call to ministry can partake in a specially-crafted, hands-on path of study aimed at preparing them for service and leadership within the local church. This partnership with Southeastern University allows us to do just that. Our students will receive experiential, transformational ministry training while also receiving a world-class education that equips them for a glorious future of building the Kingdom of God. We'd like to invite you to explore what your future could be by enrolling in Southeastern University at City of Life Church.
