So, what will you do at CORE?

Bible Studies

Students will be giving personal Bible studies and leading out in small groups with interests they gain through work in the community, social media evangelism, health work, and door-to-door witnessing.


Students gain experience in sharing literature while developing skill sets in interpersonal communication, witnessing, and perseverance. 


Learn practical skill to deliver an inspiring message while owning your personality and strengths. Students have numerous opportunities to craft, prepare and deliver messages in their time at CORE.


Students spend time learning from seasoned cross cultural missionaries who share  real life experience in learning how to relieve people’s sufferings, find creative ways to cross cultural barriers, and to see the needs that exist all around them.


Learn how to use the health message as a way to make connections with people in your community and bring the gospel into their homes. 


Learn how to better understand your own story, find healing in your experience, and learn how to help other who struggle with mental health challenges, find hope. CORE partners with the ABIDE Network to help students earn their certification as a mental health coach.




We provide students with a fundraising letter that can help them in garnering support for their tuition. Our worthy student fund provides opportunities for select students to qualify for financial assistance.


Continue Education While Serving

Upon successful completion of the CORE program students have the potential to receive academic credit for future studies.


Find Your Calling

Through multiple opportunities in service you will be able to discover and grow your spiritual gifts.


Experience community missions

Students will learn how to minister to refugees, immigrants, and international college students by getting proper training by seasoned missionaries. Students will learn how to engage local communities and meet present needs. Spending time in homes of people of different cultures, and belief systems, hearing their stories and relieving their sufferings continues to be one of the most impactful parts of the CORE experience. 


Discover Your True Identity in Christ

Every aspect of the program is designed to uplift the cross to allow the students to discover their truest and deepest identity in Christ, and how to share that message with the world around them.

Dee Casper is Director of the CORE Evangelism Training Program. Dee lived 30 minutes from 3ABN World Headquarters for 21 years and had never heard of a Seventh-Day Adventist, but by the grace of God, he found the message through 3ABN TV beginning in the fall of 2006. He was baptized in 2010 at the ARISE Cornerstone program, and has been involved in ministry ever since. He has served as a Bible worker, been a Bible teacher in an academy setting, and has taught in different schools of evangelism.

Issayah Ray

Outreach Coordinator

From a young age Issayah knew he wanted to work for the Lord. He founded various ministries as a teenager and was always looking for new ways to spread the gospel. When he was 19, God opened the doors for him to attend CORE, and it was a life-changing decision. Upon graduation, he went on to co-lead a youth summer canvassing program and do Bible work in Tennessee. He is thrilled to now be an outreach coordinator for the school that did so much for him.

Sarah Casper

Administrative Assistant

Sarah has a deep passion for discipleship and serving God’s people. She graduated from Washington State University with a degree in clinical nutrition and exercise physiology, but in recent years she has felt a strong call to full time ministry. She has been active in local church ministry investing in youth and young adults and helping them to see God as He truly is, and helping them to find deeper healing in their walk with Him. Her work as a mental health coach, studying Hebrew, and speaking on the Gospel and healing journeys  are some ministry passions that she enjoys the most. Sarah enjoys a creative lifestyle and exploring nature with her husband, Dee.
