Is it too late to reconsider your summer?

After meeting with Dr. Charlene Thomas to finish planning our Summer Studies at the Institute, I am super excited for the students that are going to be able to participate.  Where else can one find total immersion in Christian thought in  a small group discussion environment? Where else can one engage professors of the quality that are assembled at the Institute for a few weeks this summer? Think of the impact it could have on your Christian life!

It is not too late! Find out more here:
