how IT WORKS
Each week in Eikon is different, tailored to help you grow and to put what you are learning into practice. Students take classes full-time, and serve in the various ministries of Calvary Church. Weekly responsibilities include discipleship, ministry projects, community outreach, and practical leadership development, in addition to being a part of weekly services.
A year in Eikon gives you the opportunity to start preparing for your God-given purpose without missing a beat in earning your degree. We have made that next step as easy as possible.
