Southwestern Christian University is our university. As one of the premier IPHC institutions, SCU has been training students for ministry and many other careers for many years. SCU is a tremendous Christian liberal arts college training students to serve with integriy and deep-rooted spirituality in a variety of career fields. To determine how deep the relationship between SCU, the Heartland Conference and the IPHC is, you only have to attend one of our churches to bump into someone who has attended/graduated from there. Historically, many of our pastors come from these hallowed halls of learning and preparation.

Fall is in the air, and it’s time for Camp Meeting! With camp meeting music and soul-stirring preachers, a blessing is coming your way.
See the Day Approaching. We do many things when we gather at this annual event. We worship, pray, learn, fellowship, meet new brothers and sisters, strengthen our relationships and much, much more. This year, we want to make sure that we think about the approaching return of Christ. You know that it's easy to get caught up with keeping up with all the demands on us, our families and our churches. It's possible to spend all our time and energy maintaining a routine. But we know that the world will not go on the same forever. Christ will come back for a people prepared and watching for His return! So let's take time to think about how this should stir us to action!

As a communicator of truth, Pastor Demetrius Miles carries an enormous burden to see the Kingdom of God advanced in the earth and has had the privilege of proclaiming the Gospel of the Kingdom across the nation and abroad.
