The fall 2009 preview days at Foursquare’s Life Pacific College in San Dimas, Calif., will be in full swing October 5-6. This two-day event will provide high school juniors and seniors, as well as parents and leaders, an opportunity to tour the campus, attend classes, meet instructors and students, and experience what it’s like to be a student at Life Pacific College (LPC, also called LIFE Bible College).

October not only plays host to the fall preview event, but also marks the beginning of a new academic year. Returning students are starting a new semester, meeting new friends, and reconnecting with old friends. It is also a time when the Degree Completion Program begins a new cohort, and students are beginning to assess how to adjust their schedules to fit the renewal of their academic pursuits into their family and ministry routines.

For new students, the journey of discovery and connection is just beginning.

“The second I stepped foot on campus, LIFE drew me in,” says transfer student Ali Roberts, who is enrolled in the traditional undergraduate program. “The dynamics on campus are amazing. The professors are passionate about what they do and care deeply for us as students. I learn something life-changing in every class. At my former college, things were very impersonal, and I was just a number. In the short time I’ve been at LIFE, I’ve already made friendships that I’m confident will last a lifetime.”

What Ali has touched on is one of the most significant experiences students will have during their time at LPC. The caliber of education is excellen—but equally important are the relationships students take with them into ministry after their formal education has concluded. LPC is the birthplace of many lifelong relationships that will serve to support the work that is done for Christ.

Robert Flores, president of LPC, has continually expressed his desire for the college to be a place where students’ lives are transformed as they become biblically grounded and fully prepared for the rigors of ministry. Attending LPC is an opportunity for students to hone the ministry skills needed to address the many challenges of establishing or leading a church community in today’s society.
