PROGRAM OVERVIEW
OMEGA stands for One Year Ministry Education with Global Awareness.
  • Dorm-life experience on campus at Summit
  • Short-term (3 - 4 week) overseas missions experience
  • Variety of ministry experiences (i.e. children's ministry, youth ministry, urban ministry, senior's ministry, etc.).

OMEGA is a One-Year-Ministry Experience with Global Awareness Program.

OMEGA is unique in that it offers hands on local and overseas experience, while simultaneously maintaining a first year college level academic track.

The goal of the OMEGA program is to develop Christian character. The program is centred around discipleship and local and global mission.

A student choosing this program is committing 9 months of their lives to grow in their faith and gain an exponential amount of hands on experience that will transform their head, heart and hands for the rest of their life.
