Everyone loves a good story. Especially God! After all, He wrote, made possible, and told the ultimate story of love and redemption. Here at Light Bearers, we’re passionate about this story. Our 15-week ARISE Cornerstone Program is all about discipleship in the context of the biblical narrative. With intense in-class instruction augmented by genuine “in the community” ministry, the program provides the perfect cornerstone for building a Christ-centered, life-long personal ministry. Our goal is to share The Story with you, so you can share it with others, who can share it with others…

ARISE is not an accredited school. Therefore, we cannot guarantee college/university credit for the completion of the Cornerstone Program. ARISE is able to issue a transcript; however, it is at the discretion of the college/university to accept or deny credit transfer. Currently, Andrews University is the only university that has an established partnership with ARISE to accept the completion of the Cornerstone Program as transfer credits. Attendees must contact Andrews University for details, including credit amount.
Since ARISE is not an accredited school, attendees of the Cornerstone Program are not technically “students” and thus are not eligible to receive a student visa such as an I-20. International attendees typically apply for a visitors or tourist visa, such as a B-1 or B-2. Prospective attendees will need to contact their country’s immigration office for details. ARISE will provide international attendees with an official invitation letter, which includes dates, housing and address, and program description at the time of acceptance. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
