Although Great Lakes Christian College exists primarily to prepare servant-leaders for the church, it also seeks to provide Christian leadership to the world.
For those who decide to serve Christ in non-church related careers, GLCC will:
- Provide an educational foundation from a distinctly Christian perspective;
- Provide an enhanced understanding of the Bible; and
- Prepare students for professional vocations.
A collaborative agreement exists between Great Lakes Christian College and Cornerstone University. Students attending GLCC will graduate from Great Lakes with a Bachelor of Science and Cornerstone University with a degree in the Teacher Education program. This agreement is the result of an effort to more fully serve the academic development of our students, utilize the expertise of the respective faculties, and expand the educational options for students enrolled at Great Lakes Christian College.
Any student desiring to pursue this option can call 800-YES-GLCC.
