The Institute for Cultural Engagement
The Institute for Cultural Engagement offers students at CPA the opportunity to discover the intersection of their passion and purpose (their unique design) in order to make a meaningful contribution to the public good (culture shapers).
The CPA Institute for Cultural Engagement solidifies the Mind, Body, and Spirit educational design by giving students a pathway to purpose and to God’s design for their lives.
Through strategic course design and platform alignment, this program unites the head and the heart as it trains tomorrow’s leaders to discover their purpose and their passion. This intentional design grants our students organic opportunities to invest in and serve the community of Nashville and the church.
