Why Corban

“Attending Corban University changed me. I’m thankful for the opportunity to be part of a school where people view their work as worship. Some of my most memorable moments have come from in-class and out-of-class experiences that connected us with our Creator and with each other. Corban is a place where we walk together, laugh together, and study together. It’s a place where we find God together, sometimes where we least expect Him.”
