Cottonwood College

Welcome

We provide biblical and practical training to those who desire to develop their God-given gifts. You will experience spiritual growth and cultivate the healthy and passionate leader within you.

Our Values

Authentic Growth

We believe that education and training for ministry is centered on genuine spiritual growth through discipleship, experience-based faith, and a relationship with God. Our students are instilled with a genuine hunger to grow spiritually and an ongoing affection for Jesus as Lord of their life.

Developing Purpose

Every person has a unique, God-given set of gifts, talents, skills, and personality traits intended to be a blessing to the local church and the world. Students at Cottonwood College discover and develop these special gifts and abilities in order to fulfill their God-given calling and purpose. 

Biblical Education

We place a high value on God’s word as a the final authority for life and ministry. All of our programs and courses are built firmly on the foundation of Scripture. Our students are known for being people who love the Bible and make their reading, study, and understanding of Scripture a priority.

Traditional Program

This brand new program allows students an opportunity to attend college and earn a degree through Southeastern University on the Cottonwood Church campus while growing their relationship with God and developing their purpose. 

This brand new and exciting program offers 3 major components:

An Immersive and Unique Experience

Students will be invited into a tight-knit, community-based experience where they can thrive in their relationship with God, their peers, mentors, teachers and the local church. This program immerses students in opportunities to participate in local church life and service, and also involves regular activities that promote spiritual growth, fun, and celebration.

Practical Training for God-Given Purpose

With a learning-by-doing approach, students will be challenged to serve in the local church, work with people, and learn real leadership skills necessary for the development of their purpose and God-given gifts. The training process will be guided by real ministry leaders and mentors in the local church.

Christ-Centered Education

The traditional program sets students up for their future while providing a Biblically-based education at the Cottonwood campus. Cottonwood Church partners with Southeastern University, which is a regionally accredited institution based in Lakeland, Florida. This allows students at Cottonwood College to take courses that are delivered in a hybrid format of online and face-to-face at Cottonwood Church.
