As it says in Colossians 1:13, "For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves."
We are sad to announce that this will be Mike Pedde’s last year on staff. We are so thankful for the twenty-three years of service and the time he has dedicated to the school and its students. Stay tuned to hear more from Mike as he reflects back on his years at Carmel.
Thanks to everyone who gave so generously to our Giving Tuesday campaign! We raised almost $28,000, well above our goal! We are so thankful for the continued support of our community.

Sarah: To travel around the world and see where God takes me. I have a heart for people, and I want to see God’s creation while also seeing how he can use me to better his kingdom.
Doran: There’s so much I want to do, but I’m not sure if or when I will get the chance to do any of it. I would love to backpack across Europe with some friends, enjoying nature with people I like.
Sarah Joy: Travelling to England and South Africa because my grandmother was born in England and was raised in South Africa.
Sarah: I have started growing in the right direction. Before coming to Carmel, I was scared to discuss my faith. I felt that I didn’t have the knowledge to back up anything I said. I knew it was real to me, but I didn’t know how to explain it to others. However, even in just a few months at Carmel, I’ve learned through the classes, serving, and talking with other students how to share Jesus with others, or at the least, tell them why I believe in Jesus.
Doran: As I have grown in my faith this year, I have been delighted to find that it has become more difficult to make selfish decisions and easier to act with others in mind rather than myself.
Sarah Joy: I have more trust in God to provide for me in my relationships. I am starting to make friends by talking with people.
Sarah: “Stepping Out”, because I struggled a bit during these first few months. I’m not great at making deep connections with people. I make friends easily but never tell them anything real about me. So, it has been really good for me to try and step out of my comfort zone and focus on making deeper connections with the people here.
Doran: Probably something cheesy, like “A Whole New World” or “Growing Seeds,” because this year has been like a plunge into freezing waters; I have been shocked and surprised at how much Christ has been at work around me, and how much I have grown.
Sarah Joy: It would be “The Best Year Of My Life”! I applied because my high school math teacher, Beverly Robertson, shared her experience at Mount Carmel Bible College. Thank you so much Beverly!
