First Year Program

First Year Program


 

Establish Your Identity in Christ
Our generation is constantly seeking to find their identity through positions, possessions, and people. It’s only when we discover that we are complete in Christ that we will experience true freedom and liberty. During the first year of SCSL, you will be given an opportunity to establish your identity in Christ by being taught biblical principles, truths and disciplines that can lead to a lasting relationship with God.

Process Your Past
We are products of our past but, that does not mean we have to be prisoners of it. SCSL will teach you how to process the past and lay a solid foundation upon which you can build a solid God focused future. God desires for you to use past experiences, both good and bad, for His glory in the present.

Develop the Character of Christ
It was once said, “We set young leaders up for a fall if we encourage them to envision what they can do, before they consider what kind of person they should be.” If your character doesn’t back the call of God upon your life, you may eventually fall. SCSL provides a loving, transparent environment in which you can develop the character of Christ for your own good and for God’s glory.

Learn Life and Leadership Skills
Regardless of your vocational desires, whether within the secular market or church, at SCSL you will receive foundational leadership and life training from over 15 marketplace professionals and Pastors. Each lesson is designed to help you succeed personally and professionally by teaching you practical skills that can be applied in the home, church, and marketplace.

Develop a Vision for Biblical Manhood or Womanhood
What does it mean to be a godly man or woman in today’s society? What are the true marks and characteristics of a man or woman? SCSL will provide answers to these questions. For nine months you will journey together with other brothers or sisters from across the nation to understand what it is to be true men and women of God.

Second Year Program


Second Year Program


Leadership Development
Students accepted to the second or third year program of SCSL will further discover and sharpen their leadership skills and abilities. Each student is assigned portfolios based on individual skill sets and given the opportunity to lead in various venues throughout the year. Second year students will also have the opportunity to serve as a resident assistant and small group leader. These invaluable experiences along with leadership mentoring will equip them to lead effectively within the home, church and market place.

Ministry Preparation
Students desiring to enter ministry will receive training and mentoring from many experienced veterans. Classroom instruction, combined with practical hands on application, makes this an invaluable experience and gives students entering ministry a distinct advantage. Within two to three years at SCSL, they will have over twenty-five pastors and market place professionals personally pouring into their life.  Special emphasis is placed upon those who are interested in Children’s, youth, worship or missions.  Upon completion of the third year, students may apply to become licensed and credentialed through the Assemblies of God.

Ministry


Ministry


One of the highlights of the SCSL is the opportunity to participate in our various ministries. Each semester, students will have the benefit of gaining hands-on ministry experience in the ministry track of their choosing. Students enrolled in SEU’s programs will earn 3 hours of practicum credit each semester toward their degree program.

Housing


Housing


Woodland Village Apartments and Townhomes

2221 Bush River Rd, Columbia, SC 29210

 

Student housing is conveniently located within walking distance of the campus at a local apartment community, Woodland Village. The 1,200 square foot layout of each apartment has two or three bedrooms, kitchen, living room, dining area, and laundry room.  These open housing units provide a desirable living and learning environment for our students.

The church family at Christian Life has helped to adequately furnish each apartment with a dinette set, full living room seating, washer and dryer, and bedroom furniture; some other donated furnishings include microwaves, TVs, DVD players, kitchen appliances and eatery, and more.  The apartment community also offers many accessible amenities such as a fitness center, two pools, grilling patio area, and tennis courts. The cost of housing is $3,500.  

SCSL does not offer “home-opener” housing with local church members. As a family, the students grow together at home by living together, apart from simply being students in the same program. This is an important part of what makes SCSL truly family. Each apartment family consists of one or two Resident Assistants (RA), served by a second year student, with the remaining spots in the apartment filled by first year students.

Additional Expenses

Every student is required to go on at least one mission trip during the school year. This is not an inclusive cost with tuition, and every student will have to raise his/her funds for the trip. To help assist in meeting the payment schedule for missions trips, each student is required to pay a $300.00 deposit for their trip upon arrival at SCSL. Opportunities to raise funds are provided by SCSL’s fundraising efforts, however students may need to seek additional funds.

Food and living expenses are not included in the cost of tuition; each student is responsible for their own means of living. SCSL offers several scheduled times throughout the week for every student to work a part-time job to assist in living expenses.

SCSL students are strongly encouraged to have a car during the program. Students with vehicles are not obligated to provide transportation for students without vehicles. However, if transportation is provided, students receiving transportation are to be respectful by contributing adequate funds toward gas expenses.

 

Loans & Scholarships

Because SCSL is not a full-time accredited educational institution such as most colleges or universities, many student loans cannot be applied toward Non-Degree Track tuition. Students enrolled at SEU may apply for financial aid to cover that portion of their expenses. 

SCSL will accept any scholarship that a student obtains which can be awarded and applied toward a non-accredited school. Because SCSL is not a full-time educational institution, many scholarships are not applicable. Private scholarships and donations are also accepted from individuals seeking to sponsor students.

Discipleship


Discipleship


About "Cymbrogi"...

CYMBROGI, an ancient Celtic word meaning brothers or companions of the heart, best describes the chemistry of the SCSL men’s and women’s discipleship programs. It’s all about family, openness, honesty, and integrity in relationships. It’s more than acquaintances. It’s about covenant companions, life-long friends, brothers and sisters in arms.
