Evangelicals Attend College in World Landmark

Above the fast-paced streets of midtown Manhattan, in one of the tallest buildings in the world, a Christian four-year college seeks to bridge the gap between a secular world and a Christ centered-church.

The King’s College, which was founded 70 years ago and moved from upstate New York to the big apple several years ago, occupies three floors of the Empire State Building, which includes classrooms, lounge, student recreation center and administrative offices.

Undergraduates at the private school are taught to excel in fields such as business, philosophy, economics and politics, with hopes that they will impact secular society with godly principles.

“What The King's College is doing is a beautiful illustration of what Christ did,” student David Lapp told the The Washington Post. “He came into the muck and mire of this world, and He lived among men, and lived in a real place, Nazareth. So that's fundamentally what we as Christ's followers are to do as well: Go into those places where there is real hurt, real sin, and live among them and strive to live the way of Christ.”

Many students indicated that they planned to remain in New York City after graduation in order to work for secular companies.
