Your Kingdom come image

As we look back on the 2016/17 year, we thank God for his work in students, faculty and alumni. Our theme for the coming year is “Your Kingdom Come”. Together, we're exploring how God’s kingdom reaches deep into our hearts, but also to the ends of the Earth.

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Matthew 6:9-10
