At Oklahoma Wesleyan, it is our core purpose to equip students not only to be excellent in their respective fields, but to impact their disciplines of study with a grace-filled apologetic for the Primacy of Christ, The Priority of Scripture, the Pursuit of Truth and the Practice of Wisdom. At OKWU, we call those intersections where the biblical Truth meets cultural chaos collision points. We don’t shy away from them. In fact, we go out of our way to address these points of tension in every course.
Collision points are opportunities to focus on the connection between a course’s content and the Biblical worldview. These moral and spiritual questions form the basis of classroom discussion, and are integrated into assignments and lectures regularly. It’s no secret that our culture is in need of courageous leaders of character, and with your support, OKWU is gaining national attention for our unapologetic commitment to educating students who are qualified to lead and impact culture with Truth and Wisdom. As another new and record-breaking semester begins at OKWU, we wanted to say thank you for being those leaders. Thank you for your part in the OKWU family. And thank you for standing with us at those collision points where faith and culture collide and where the Truth of Christ and the Truth of Scripture is the answer. You are needed and appreciated now more than ever.
