Welcome to Williamson College. We’re glad you are here.

At WC we believe the Holy Scriptures to be ultimate and timeless truth, “God-breathed and useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness” (II Timothy 3:16).  These same scriptures can be central in knowing how to think differently as well as act differently.  One often begets the other.  Our world desperately needs fresh thinking and acting to resolve some of the most staggering problems ever encountered.

Perhaps you are longing to invest your life in ways that make a lasting difference in your community and world.  In fact, we believe God has wired us to do just that.  As Dallas Willard says, “Unlike egoism, the drive to significance is a simple extension of the creative impulse of God that gave us being…We were built to count, as water is made to run downhill.  We are placed in a specific context to count in ways no one else does.  That is our destiny. Our hunger for significance is a signal of who we are and why we are here.”

WC faculty, staff, and trustees are committed to assist every student in discovering their God-given call, whether that is lived out as a school teacher, a physician, auto mechanic, stay-at-home mom or dad, business owner, volunteer community leader, pastor, or countless other roles.  We believe God has called us all to be on mission–that “as we go” we are being used by God for His redemptive purposes.

How exciting! By God’s grace, you can make a difference.

We invite you to Williamson College. Small classes, personalized attention, and a caring community awaits you. With 15 nations represented in our student body, a cross-cultural experience is in store for you.
