Abstract

[This chapter suggests a number of innovations that could be considered when envisioning future colleges and universities within the pentecostal movement. (1) Schools can place the Holy Spirit at the center of the educational experience, by offering theology classes for all semesters and by establishing a house of prayer model on campus. (2) Pentecostals will do well in preparing students for a technology-dominated age, which includes highlighting both the promises and perils of such developments. (3) Besides shaping the heart and the head of students, pentecostal schools also aim to train their graduates for service, which is why the researcher proposes a service model based on Acts 1:8 enabling students to have a variety of cross-cultural and international experiences while attending college.]
