A 25-Year Miracle!
Valor Christian College has come a long way in its 25 years.
Its entire history – from the beginning, when God directed Dr. Rod Parsley to build an education system in a donut-shop parking lot; to the present, when thousands of people celebrated the college’s national accreditation in February 2016 – has served as a testimony to what God can do through His obedient servants.
The Association for Biblical Higher Education
on Feb. 11, at its annual meeting in Orlando, Fla., announced that Valor had successfully completed requirements for Commission on Accreditation membership. The association explains accreditation as follows:
“Accreditation is a means of assuring the public that an institution meets accepted standards of quality and integrity. It developed in the United States early in the 20th century and has continued to be one of the cornerstones of North America’s unparalleled achievement in higher educational quality and diversity.”
The years-long accreditation process includes a rigorous self-study and submission to an on-site visit of the institution and its programs over a period of several days, until the institution demonstrates to the satisfaction of ABHE that it meets the membership’s standards of excellence as an academic institution.
For a school that began by offering intensive Bible study classes a few nights a week in a church basement, this is nothing short of miraculous! But, that’s been Valor’s story for the past 25 years. Dr. Rod Parsley has obeyed God at every step of the way, and He has rewarded that obedience in multiple ways, from constructing two dormitories in a six-week period in 1994 to qualifying for federal financial aid just last year. And now, Valor stands equal to many of the best-known names in Christian higher education as a nationally accredited institution.
Valor has stayed true to the vision God has given Dr. Rod Parsley – to offer a superior preparation for Kingdom service through impartation, education and application. Hundreds of members of World Harvest Churches, ministers of churches across the United States and around the world, and Christians in every sphere of influence are beneficiaries of that vision, and Dr. Parsley’s obedience to implementing it.
How is God calling you to serve Him? No matter how you answer that question, there’s no better way to prepare than by attending Valor Christian College – on campus in Columbus, Ohio, or online from wherever you are right now. Click here to find out more
