Desperation College exists to equip and empower the next generation of leaders in fulfilling the simplicity of the Gospel.


Vision 2


Through Desperation College, leaders will develop and grow in body, soul, and spirit for the purpose of fulfilling the simplicity of the Gospel through the local church. With hands-on-training, leadership development, and Bible-based classes, students will actively live out the Word of God according to Colossians 1:10-12.

Colo 1

“…that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light.”
Colossians 1:10-12

We believe that each person is designed to fulfill the simplicity of the Gospel. It does not matter if you are called to be a dentist, to be a coach, or to be a pastor of 5,000 people, we are all called to love and to lead. Desperation College provides two programs that enable students to learn more about ministry in and through the local church as we strive to be the hands and feet of Christ.
