What is Kernel University? A kernel is a seed. It grows into something more significant. We want to plant seeds in your life so that you may grow into everything God can make you. Come study with us. Become significant.

The cornerstone of Kernel University was laid on and dedicated with these words, “Equipping to Be God-men.”
Kernel University is dedicated to equipping students with academic, professional and spiritual resources so that they will express and represent Christ – that is to be God-men – who function effectively in their careers, communities and lives.

Philosophy of Education

A good education takes into account that a person who does not experience the work of God in his or her life will be incomplete and feel unfulfilled. Too many academic institutions ignore the spiritual part of a person’s being. As a Christian institution, we believe that God designed each individual with unique gifts and a unique calling. Since God has a plan for good things in the life of each individual, part of our calling is to assist individuals in understanding their gifts and calling.

Kernel University Vision

Building God-men who function effectively in their careers, communities and lives

God-men: Persons who express God’s attributes through human virtue
