Why Prairie

Prairie has a rich legacy of preparing students to meet the greatest needs of the world. Celebrating our 100th anniversary this year, Prairie has long been a leader in inviting students to become lovers of God who make disciples, and influence the culture around them. Prairie has continued to remain relevant with our world-class, Biblically integrated professional programs.

Community Culture

Prairie’s warm community encourages students to delve deeper into the unique story that God is writing with their lives. Student small groups, community events, and Prairie’s friendly faculty contribute to an intentional community of discipleship.  Here we encourage one another, correct one another in love and press on together in a life of faith.
