OneLife Institute + Bethany Global University

OneLife Institute is a nine-month Christian gap year program focused on discipleship and spiritual growth. Their program helps students to explore their calling, their community, and who God is calling them to be.

Both OneLife Institute and BGU provide discipleship and missions-centered education experiences. Our partnership allows students to easily continue their education at Bethany Global University after completing the OneLife Institute gap year program.

Students transferring into BGU with coursework completed in tandem with their OneLife Institute experience will be allowed to complete up to 50% of their degree requirements by transfer credit (which may include a combination of credits completed as a part of OneLife Institute as well as other acceptable credits).
