Worldview U


“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”  Jesus in Matt. 28:19-20

What is Worldview U?

The CA mission is to know God, to become like Him, and to make Him known to others.  Worldview U is one way we’re implementing Jesus’ commission to make disciples. Disciples get intimate access, not just to the guidance and counsel of other Christians but to Jesus Himself – to His secrets, His power, to share in His work and His suffering, to understand the meaning of life, to know God’s will, and in the end to gain eternal life with Jesus forever and ever.

Worldview U is designed as more of a philosophy or way of looking at life together with God rather than a program.  It’s intended to help anyone develop a thoroughly Christian way of thinking, acting, and living in devotion to Jesus.

Worldview U offers free or low-cost classes, lectures, seminars, study groups, discussion groups, outreaches, field trips, overseas learning, conferences, retreats, cultural immersion programs, online classes, prayer groups, internships, service opportunities in the community, and more.   Most classes and events are open to the public.

Christians, Government, and the Judicial System – Hear from Christians in government and judges about our responsibilities and challenges in today’s culture.

NC Christian Movements – Class with Field Trips.

Christians & Business – Hear from Christian business leaders about the propagation of the Gospel through trade and business.  Contrary to what you may have heard, your part in fulfilling the Great Commission is not primarily making and giving money to fund the work of others.  In fact, the Gospel has always moved along trade routes and spread through the marketplace. In this seminar you’ll find out more about your calling to people through business.
