letter from the President

Our biggest problem with education today is that we associate the word with systems, mechanization, assignments, tests and passivity. What we don’t think of is discovery, knowledge, wisdom, exploration and adventure. We don’t associate education with human flourishing and spiritual growth.

This hasn’t always been the case. The ancient Greeks tied education to the idea of “the flourishing soul,” and the bible speaks of knowledge being “pleasant to the soul,” more desirable than “choice gold” and a “crown” for the prudent.

The focus of Kilns College isn’t to build a school, but to irrigate deserts. It is not to provide vocational training, but to help souls flourish. It is not to multiply buildings and students, but to enlarge hearts and minds.

At Kilns College you will learn who God made you to be, explore your calling, be equipped for life-long learning and gain exposure to issues, places and peoples in the world who are desperately in need of men and women who are “growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”

Let’s make a difference together,

Ken Wytsma
President
Kilns College
