Discover Your Fit

It is our goal at New Hope Christian College to train up Creative Arts students who will discover their unique contributions in presenting the gospel in new and creative ways using the gifts and passions that the Lord has placed within them. To accomplish this goal, we have developed a cutting edge Creative Arts program that not only has a strong biblical foundation, but also has the distinction of excellent teaching, practical training in ministry and deep, heartfelt communication of the Gospel that will not only reach minds, but touch hearts for eternity. Entrance to the Creative Arts program is through invitation after having passed the audition and interview. Each audition will require the student to demonstrate an intermediate to advanced level of proficiency in their platform of excellence. This ensures that performance standards are kept high, and that CA students graduate as accomplished artists in their own field.
