A well-rounded, rigorous, and traditional graduate education is rare, but Christendom graduate school alumnus and high school theology teacher Dr. Roland Millare is proof that such an education exists.

20th Year of Spring Break Mission Trips Brings Evangelization and Aid Worldwide

When Christendom sent students on a spring break mission trip for the first time in 1999, those involved could not have expected how big the initiative would become over the subsequent years.
