"Strengthen the feeble hands, steady the knees that give way; say to those with fearful hearts, 'Be strong, do not fear your God will come." Isaiah 35:3-4 a

In a world where:

The needs are so vast…the options for career paths are endless…good enough has replaced great...

The options seemed endless. I knew I wanted to honor God with my life and I could do that through a myriad of occupations. I could gain the skills I needed at a seemingly endless amount of schools.

I needed:

A place to see the world from a new perspective…coaching…real world experience…

Tabor provided a safe place to explore my God-given skills and passions. I was given opportunities to hear from real people meeting real needs around the world. There were countless invitations to serve both locally, nationally and throughout the world. I needed to see the needs of the world and be equipped to go meet those needs. Tabor provided all of these experiences.

Tabor provided:

Individual support from faculty…space to tangibly explore my calling…discipleship…

The small community and space for personal interactions with professors is what sold me on Tabor. I knew I needed help defining my life’s purpose and I didn’t want to get lost in the crowd at a larger school. Tabor provided a vast array of service opportunities and safe places to explore just what it was that God was calling me to do. Tabor created space for God to work and speak in my life.

Testimony:

“During my freshman year I attended a chapel service at Tabor where a speaker was sharing about the work an organization called World Impact was doing throughout the country. During that chapel service I felt God capture my heart for the people living in urban poverty. It was a feeling I tried to shake, but just couldn’t. That chapel service changed the trajectory of my life. From that moment on I was zealous to illuminate Jesus in the places in our cities that were dark and hurting. That journey has led me to living in the urban core of Kansas City working towards community development. This year I have had the privilege of starting Kansas City’s first and only free, private, Christian school for low-income scholars. The lives of young scholars in Kansas City are changing because God was at work many years ago in a chapel service at Tabor.”
