God’s Alternative Program

Started in 2019 by Drew Anderson and Tom Nelson, the GAP Program is 9-months of life-leadership training to holistically prepare and equip young adults for TRUE SUCCESS in college, career, family, and life.


This program specifically targets graduating high school seniors, and serves as an alternative to heading straight to college or career from high school.

Vision for the GAP Program by
Pastor Tom Nelson

Expected Growth

The first class enrolled six male students as Denton Bible Church finalized the curriculum and coordinated the events of the program.  Due to increased attention, there is an expectation of dozens of young adults joining the program in the coming year.


In the 2021-22 year, we anticipate that enrollment will be opened to both male and female students.

The GAP Logo (Young Men’s Program)

God’s Alternative Program’s logo is symbolic of a warrior. The “G” uses the negative space to create a warrior’s helmet.  It  also has a visibile gap in the bottom, which forms the warrior’s shoulders and a literal gap in the letter.


The logo is sharp and striking, like a warrior prepared for battle and reminds the observer that this program will help those who go through it to put on the full armor of God.

The GAP Logo (Young Women’s Program)

God’s Alternative Program’s logo is of the grace and dignity of the women of God. The gold “G” in the heart of the logo signifies the value and worth of the individual.  The wreath forms the boundary of the logo, reminiscent of the dignity and strength of the Proverbs 31 woman.

The logo reminds that observer that the tried-and-true faithfulness of the woman manifests itself in dignity and worth or true success.
