We live in exciting times as we see the Kingdom of God coming! Ecclesiastes 3:1 says, “To everything, there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.” God is not taken by surprise about anything that is happening around our lives, He is purposeful and intentional about directing our steps toward Him. His heart is to bring us into a full measure of Himself and then spread that measure on to others through a life yielded to His ways.

This is why I am excited about the times we are living in. No other moment in history has been so instrumental in forging the follower of Christ into a deeply, passionate-filled relationship with Jesus Christ. We at SAGULife are using this moment to raise up a generation of leaders to impact lives in the church and in the marketplace. We are excited about the opportunity to invest in students and help them to fulfill the call of God in their lives to serve their communities, regions, nation, and around the world.

We would be honored to have the opportunity to engage with you as a prospective student of SAGULife University. Looking forward to hearing from you soon!
