Our Teachers

We believe that learning from top Christian voices is an interactive and engaging experience which strengthens students’ perspectives and builds a strong Biblical worldview. Each week, you’ll be taught by prominent leaders who embody our core beliefs and teach from God’s Word about relevant topics, which transform students into leaders.

Meet our staff! Our staff is dedicated to the ministry of Link Year and is passionate about developing dynamic Christian leaders through life-changing experiences, Godly relationships, and spiritual training. 

Our Shepherds

Campus Shepherds serve as our residential advisors and are responsible for building relationships with our students while encouraging them in their academics and holding them accountable to our lifestyle expectations. Campus Shepherds also assist our students in social, spiritual, and physical development.
