Institutional Learning Outcomes

In pursuit of our purpose, we seek to cultivate an institutional environment of Christian excellence through which vital core competencies and values are inculcated in each student. The Luther Rice educational experience is designed to transfer to the student all the vital competencies required of twenty-first century Christian leaders. Upon completion of a degree program at Luther Rice, students will demonstrate the following:


Exegetical/Expositional Competence - the ability to accurately interpret and effectively communicate the Word of God in a variety of contexts


Theological/Apologetical Competence - the ability to present a reasoned explanation of the doctrines that are integral to Scripture and to defend the historic Christian faith


Pastoral/Leadership Competence - the ability to shepherd and to lead others in ecclesiastical and workplace contexts


Evangelical/Devotional Competence - the ability to present the gospel to unbelievers in a clear and winsome way and to disciple believers for spiritual formation in the image of Christ


Academic/Discipleship Competence - the ability to research and study new subjects for oneself and to cultivate a lifestyle of lifelong learning


Communication Competence - the ability to communicate effectively and accurately through both the written and spoken word
