What Makes GCU’s College of Science, Engineering and Technology Different

Technology is a key part of any business – and this dependence on technology is expected to be a key economic driver across all industries in the U.S. The jobs of tomorrow have yet to be conceived, though the skillset required to flourish in this unknown environment exists today.

“…so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience.” (Colossians 1:10-11)

Do you consider yourself to be patient? Our daily lives require us to exercise patience, whether the issues we face are small or big. Receiving a bad grade, dealing with a difficult co-worker, experiencing conflict with a friend or getting sick are all situations that require us to be patient, and it is often easier said than done.

Worship and praise

By Todd Forrest
Faculty, College of Theology

There are times in life when we seem to be unraveling at the edges. Overwhelmed with issues of our day, we feel like the rug of life has just been ripped from beneath us. Well, there is a way we can hold it together. In Colossians 1:17 it states, “He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. “ (NIV) This makes a clear distinction of the activity of Jesus Christ. Not just on the Earth, but in our daily lives. Jesus not only created the world, but he also sustains every aspect of it and he will guide your purpose, destiny and present struggles. He will help you to hold it together.
