Catch the Vision is an event that is held at least once a semester at both the Ethnos360 Bible Institute’s Michigan and Wisconsin campuses. During this event, prospective students 16 and older are invited to come spend a couple of days living life here with our current students. The knowledge and experience you gain at Catch the Vision has the potential to alter the course of your life. Here are five reasons you should be here for this event:
1. Experience Daily Life At Ethnos360 Bible Institute.
During your time at Catch the Vision, you will experience what it’s like to live here. We’ll help you envision being a student by including you in different aspects of on-campus life. You’ll sleep in a dorm, eat meals in the cafeteria, attend chapel, and go to classes. We don’t want to leave you guessing, so you will experience the daily routine.
2. Connect With Students And Staff.
Our community is a tight knit one. Because of our small and personal campuses, the students and staff have a chance to form deep spiritual friendships with each other. Spend time with students in the dorm, and hear their opinion on classes and life. Ask them questions about the friendships they are gaining and the truths they are learning. You’ll also be able to attend a small group in the home of a staff person. This gives you the opportunity to hear the personal stories of staff, as well as ask them any questions you may have in a more relaxed atmosphere.
3. Be Challenged In Your View of Missions.
Come prepared to have your view of the Great Commission be challenged. Ethnos360 Bible Institute is a place where the Bible and Missions are one. We will ask you to consider how God may want to use you to spread the gospel to the ends of the earth. Our vision is what Christ laid out at the end of His life when He said, “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Matthew 28:19-20). We would love for you to consider the fact that as a believer you too are responsible to live a life of ministry, whether you go on to evangelize in a cross-cultural context or not.
4. Hear From God’s Word.
During your stay you will be able to attend your choice of our current classes. Bring your bible and notebook, and be ready to take notes! Year after year we see our students challenged, admonished, encouraged, and uplifted because of God’s Word. As they immerse themselves in His truth, they cannot help but be changed by Him. Take advantage of the knowledge our teachers have and articulate so well. Spend a day having your mind renewed under the teaching of God’s Word.
5. See How Ethnos360 Bible Institute Can Equip You For Life And Ministry.
Ethnos360 Bible Institute is a first step in training for a life of ministry. We seek to equip our students by grounding them in the truths of the Word, so that they can be effective in whatever future ministry they may pursue. Specifically, we urge our students to consider cross-cultural missions. Our heart is that the unreached people groups of the world be reached with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Experience how we can equip you to live a life of service to the Lord through teaching, discipleship, and community living.
Come to Catch the Vision to experience student life, talk to current staff and students, consider the Great Commission, be encouraged by God’s Word, and understand how two years at Ethnos360 Bible Institute could shape your future.
Come and ponder with the Lord what He would have you do with your life.
