SAGU seeks creators, dreamers, and changemakers. 

SAGU Lions are service minded and look for opportunity in surprising places. They take truth and apply it to their callings to impact the world for this moment. 

Your experience
Students describe SAGU as relational. Our Christ-centered environment fosters strong bonds with professors and other students, creating a comfortable and meaningful college experience. You’ll grow among friends as you learn in a hands-on, Bible-based environment that prepares you to be confident in your skills and grounded in your faith after graduation.

SAGU’s Bible-based academic curriculum will challenge and stretch you to become the best in your field as you pursue your Christian purpose. Small class sizes allow you to know your professors and receive personalized instruction.

The relationships you’ll form with Christian roommates and peers will provide a network of support and a family of friends with bonds that will last well beyond college. SAGU Lions are there to help, encourage, and pray for one another.

Uncommon destinations
Do you want to impact the world? The University just completed the end of a 10-year mission, reaching more than 170 destinations. Now, the new 20/20 FocUS vision is to reach all 50 states, the 10 most populated cities, 10 unreached people groups, and the 10 largest tribes in America over the next eight years. 

These missions reach every academic discipline at SAGU. History majors have participated in archaeological digs at biblical geographic sites. Business majors have provided training to help set up micro-businesses. Education majors have taught English as a Second Language. Bring your own impactful ideas to SAGU.
