GAP is rooted in the Word of God, preparing students to be faithful stewards of all God has given them.
An alternative to the first year of college, GAP cultivates grit and courage needed to face an ever-changing culture.
The program develops strong young men through a purposeful curriculum of the Word, biblical manhood, and life skills.
Prepare for college with a tested, Christian worldview that can thrive in a secular school.
Learn successful strategies to work hard, work smart and glorify God in your career.
Learn to be a man of God, find a godly spouse and build a faithful household.
Acquire the skills to live an enriched, purposeful, and serving life of salt and light.
GAP was developed to train young men to be men of God. In Ezekiel 22:30, God looked for “men who would stand in the gap and build the wall.” In that day there were “none to be found.” Today’s Generation Z needs men who will stand for their beliefs, for their churches, and for their families.
GAP trains men to prepare for a life of hard work and dedication. The program looks to build a work ethic for jobs and careers but also a service ethic for the church, community, and creation. For those who are willing to put in the work, GAP will give you the skills for success in work.
Churches and families need men who are willing to “stand in the gap” against the attacks of socialism, post-modern relativism, and anti-theism. GAP prepares young men with the biblical theology, worldview, and apologetics to give a faithful defense of the gospel at college, at work, and in their homes.
GAP’s mission is to give students what they need for TRUE SUCCESS. True, biblical, and godly success. Success as God defines it. Our young men will acquire the skills to live an enriched, purposeful, and serving life of salt and light.

The GAP guys were a joy to instruct. It is clear that the program, the people, and the Bible teaching are impacting their lives.
To see my son's growth...emotionally, physically, spiritually, intellectually, and at the same time to see how the GAP Program allows and fosters their individual strengths and weakness is amazing!
I have enjoyed learning about the church and why we do what we do...whether that’s being an usher or arriving early to make coffee for Sunday.
I have learned the importance of what friendship and fellowship really means.
