Should students go straight to college after High school? Tommy Nelson, Senior Pastor of Denton Bible Church, would argue no. “Colleges now are trying to make you a living, but not a life,” he says. To combat this problem, Nelson has created GAP, a 9-month leadership program where high school graduates can learn theology, life skills, job skills, and more before attending a university.


In today’s episode, Nelson discusses why he started GAP, how it operates, and how we can prepare young people to stand against the rise of secularism on college campuses. Visit to learn more about GAP.
