Work at Corban, Change the World

Why invest in a young person?

We all have our reasons. Maybe we are drawn to eager learners. Perhaps we love our discipline and want to multiply that love. Possibly, we remember those who invested in our own lives, and we want to give back. Or perhaps we know that without passionate, bright-eyed, educated and dynamic Christians investing wholeheartedly in their communities, families, and places of work, the future of our world would be dark and dismal.

This is your chance to change the world.

Your choice to work at Corban University reflects much more than the institution you’ve chosen to issue your paycheck. Your choice to work at Corban reflects your heart for the next generation, your passion for Jesus Christ, your interest in your field, and your desire to make the world a better place. Every day, you have the opportunity to be the rich soil that nurtures seeds that in turn grow up and produce a healthy, bountiful crop:

“And other seeds fell into good soil and produced grain, growing up and increasing and yielding thirtyfold and sixtyfold and a hundredfold” (Mark 4:8).  

Jesus was speaking here of believers who are well cared for, who become equipped to impact the world with His love and Good News. In your role at Corban, you may or may not have direct interaction with students. Regardless of your role, through your life and your work, you create an environment that fosters Kingdom-building servants of our most high Lord.

I am convinced that lasting change begins and ends with Jesus Christ. He is the One who transforms hearts, minds, lives, communities and nations. He is the One through whom all of life’s questions can be filtered, wrestled with, and concluded upon. Corban’s mission is “to educate Christians who will make a difference in the world for Jesus Christ” (Matthew 28:19-20) because what the world needs is, quite simply, more of Him.

Throughout American history, colleges and universities have been concerned about more than what its students know; they have also cared to influence the kind of people they become. At Corban, we are committed to pouring into every aspect of our students’ lives – mind, heart, body and soul. You will witness this in the classroom, on the athletic field and in the dining hall. The soil for growing a healthy crop expands across every inch of our beautiful campus.

I am honored that God has called you to Corban and that you have chosen to play a critical part in changing lives – lives that will make a forever impact in our world.

To God be the glory.
