I believe in KMBC because it has and promotes the right kind of heroes! At most colleges and universities, including many Christian schools, hero status is conferred on the basis of secular standards. Students are admired if they have athletic talent, beauty, brains, money, a suave personality, or cool possessions. These campus heroes often carry about them an air of superiority and organize themselves into somewhat exclusive cliques.
At KMBC the heroes are much different! To be admired on the KMBC campus you need to demonstrate servanthood, a heart for ministry, spirituality, and depth of character. The most popular students on the KMBC campus are the most spiritual, who are busy serving and ministering to others. Visitors have noted that KMBC students have a more humble spirit and are not as cliquish.
In short, to achieve hero status on a typical college campus you must measure up to secular and materialistic ideas of success. Thank God, it’s different on the KMBC campus. This difference is not coincidental. The faculty and staff are great role models of these values and show the students how a true Christian hero looks and acts in the daily grind of life. I believe in KMBC because its definition of hero more closely matches the definition that Jesus gave in the Gospels.
