A Mountain-top Locale
Our 44-acre campus is located on the edge of the Ozark Mountains overlooking the Arkansas River. Originally built as a Bible college, our campus is well-equipped with two dormitories, a cafeteria, auditorium, lounges, and offices. Atop Manitou Mountain, its serene setting is ideal for experiencing God free from the many distractions that come with city life.
Community Is Key on Our Campus
The 24-room dormitory is the hub for student and staff living. Each room can house 2–4 people, and includes its own bathroom. The dormitory also includes two lounges, a classroom, laundry room, and weight room.
