The Humanities and Science School (HAS) seeks to equip participants with a Biblical perspective of the society and the world in which we live. This course provides a broad overview of topics for people want to live out an authentic faith, influence others, and impact society.

Join us as we discover the power of God displayed in the created order, in the amazing events of human history, in great works of art, in the richness of cultures, and even in the highs and lows of human experience.

This course will take you on a journey to find out more about the God who speaks through all of these, and then challenges us to renew our minds and take a thoughtful Christian view of our world, and make a lasting difference. It includes the humanities, science and technology, looking at the achievements and failures of individuals, societies, and nations, past and present.
