The Flight Plan

Following God's leading in our lives is exciting and challenging. Many think that starting college will answer all their questions, only to find that God is challenging so much more than they expected. To support and encourage students to reach the place of God's call in their lives, we have initiated a Flight Plan - the concept being that Eastwest College is not a place to arrive, but from a student's first day here it is considered a point of departure.

Three important questions each student needs to be asking...

  1. How did I get here?
  2. How am I growing here?
  3. Where am I going from here?

So what is the Flight Plan?

Primarily the Flight Plan is a guided journal which each student completes and keeps with themselves as they go through their studies. The questions are designed to encourage students to engage in the process of spiritual growth but with a focus on moving ahead into cross-cultural ministry. We ask that students are communicating with relevant agencies and their churches about their vision and putting things in place for after their graduation so they can ... take off!

The Flight Plan is divided into stages which are completed at specific times. Having completed the stage, the student will spend time with a staff member and discuss this one-to-one and pray together over the issues covered.
