Every Student Sent --for Parents


As a parent, you can succeed in helping your teens be excited about following Jesus with a team on mission.  You can help them pick the right college, right major, purpose and career, and help them get to know leaders, new friends, roommates, and study partners in their major, all excited about growing the Kingdom.   You can also help them carry their mission forward into their professions. 

We are here to help.

The Three Pillars of College Success


worship youth diverse

College Fellowship

With the right friends, mentors, and missional mindset, students can finish college as leaders & resilient disciples who make disciples.

Calling and Career

Career & Calling

Students who select a major grounded by a vision of how God made them and understand marketable fields are best prepared

Minimal student debt

  Minimal College Debt

Many spend far too much for a  degree so that life is crippled for many years.   Learn how to reduce college cost regardless of income. 

Simple next steps:

Now students don't have to start college alone, but can go with a team of other incoming Christian friends and leaders, and roommates at their future college they get to know many months before they land on campus!  This has been proven to reverse the 70% faith drop-off, and catalyze growth.  10-12th grade students can prepare for exciting mission together with parents.
