Letter from the MSU President

You have a purpose. Finding and fulfilling your purpose is the greatest adventure you can have in this life, and should be a top priority for every Christian. Nothing is more exciting than the Christian life, and few things are more boring than mere religion. You are called to have life and to have it in abundance. The vision of MorningStar University is to help equip you to know and fulfill your highest purpose in life.

Every Christian has a calling and a mission. Most are called to fulfill these in everyday situations and places, such as business, the arts, government, media, the military, or other vocations, as well as in missions or the church. MSU is designed to help every student find and be prepared for their unique calling and to walk “the path of the righteous,” which we are promised “shines brighter and brighter until the full day” (see Proverbs 4:18). Therefore, your life should be one of increasing light and clarity if you remain on the right path. Our goal is to help you become firmly established on that path.

We are told in John 10 that the Lord’s sheep know His voice, and they follow Him because they know His voice. The path of the righteous is to follow our King and to do His will. Therefore, knowing the voice of the Lord is basic to our instruction.

If this is your basic devotion, you will fit well at MSU, and we would love to have you join us. I think you will find that all of our courses are practical, but they will also inspire you to fulfill the ultimate purpose of every human being—to love God above all else, and by this, to love others because God is love. We want you to love your time at MSU, but even more so, our goal is to see you love Him more. Doctrines and principles are important and can help us, but only those who are in love will never quit. You are called first and foremost to love God, and that too is our highest purpose.

In His service,

"Finding and fulfilling your purpose is the greatest adventure you can have in this life."
