Facts & Data

We Believe Your Life Comes with a Purpose.

It’s not a purpose that you choose for yourself, but something greater. It’s bigger than success or accomplishment and more important than personal happiness. It’s a purpose that God designed for you. It’s the life you were always meant to live.

We believe you were chosen. For a specific calling, for a certain place, for this very moment. And at PBA, you’ll learn how to live out that purpose. Our Christian community isn’t simply kind, it’s empowering. Our world-class academics aren’t merely powerful, they’re purposeful. Our highly-ranked programs, Centers for Excellence, and top-tier professors aren’t only energizing, they’re inspiring.

Everything we do is designed to ensure you become everything you are. Because you were chosen by God to explore. To be brave. To become.

A Place to Launch
