Welcome from
President Pinson

Thank you for visiting our website. At Welch College, we provide a unique setting for preparing student-leaders to serve God in whatever field He is calling them to.

What is my purpose in life?
What is my place in God’s world?
What is my calling in God’s kingdom?

These are the questions Welch College has been helping students answer for more than seventy years. At Welch, we believe God has a purpose for each of our students—a special role for each one in His kingdom. In this Christian community of faith and learning, students find their place in God’s world, and we equip them with the tools to fulfill that calling.

Our mission is to educate leaders to serve Christ, His Church, and His world through biblical thought and life. We provide our students a unique opportunity to prepare for leadership in the place of service to which God is calling them. We do this by teaching students to confront the inescapable questions of life from the vantage point of a Christian worldview, realizing the implications of Christian faith for the world around them, for the whole of life.

If you are a prospective student, God may be calling you to ministry in a local church or cross-cultural mission setting. Or He may be calling you to live out your faith as a leader in education, healthcare, the family, or the marketplace. Or perhaps you have yet to discover God’s calling for you. Wherever you are, our vision is to prepare you for that calling, for a life of leadership and service for Christ, His Church, and His world.

As you browse this website, you will learn more about the programs of study at Welch College. You will learn about its excellent academics and its well-prepared and dedicated faculty. You will learn about student life, with our emphasis on spiritual formation, service, the arts, societies, intramural sports, and Flames and Lady Flames intercollegiate athletics. And you will get a glimpse of the experience at Welch College, a place where students make the best friends they will ever have.

Please call or email our staff if you have any questions about Welch College. We are here to serve you. The Lord bless you and keep you.
