STUDENTS AT LAMP
Instead of having a main campus, we have several extensions (Learning Sites) throughout the US representing a diverse body of student. The majority of students are from a Reformed perspective; however, we have had students from the other backgrounds. All students are considered full time because of our education delivery and philosophy.
LAMP requires community life in the context of the local church. This focused approached allows and maintains a healthy environment conducive to Christian worship, study, and service. LAMP attempts to serve the needs of the entire community, including wives and children of students. Because of the high married-student enrollment, LAMP has recognized the benefits of encouraging family-oriented activities within the context of their own local church community.
