It is so important to bring God to the center of your life while making big decisions. Taking an intentional year off from school can actually launch you into making the most of your college experience, or whatever God calls you to do!
The popularity of taking a gap year continues to gain momentum. Students come back more focused on a course of study and major, have better study habits, and make more informed decisions on a career choice.
Through an integration of biblical study, leadership, discipleship training, and spiritual development, IMA students will deepen their faith and learn what it means to passionately follow Christ. Not all of our graduates will leave IMA knowing what to do with the rest of their lives, but our goal is that all of our graduates will leave knowing HOW to live the rest of their lives. Being prepared for that goal means cultivating a Christ-Centered faith, living in a nurturing community, and forging responsible character. Successful completion of this life-changing program will help set the stage for a successful launch into the next chapter of life.
Gap Years are fantastic ways to use your talents, develop new skills and explore the world around you. No matter how long you have available, whether it's two weeks or even a year, taking a career break can be the best decision you will ever make!
