Dordt College offers new Christian vocational programs

Posted: Updated:
(AP) -

A Christian college in northwest Iowa is starting a new vocational program that will prepare students for work while giving them a foundation in their faith.

Dordt College President Erik Hoekstra told the Sioux City Journal (http://bit.ly/2cVn7cU ) the new two-year Pro-Tech program will fill a gap in Christian education offerings in the area.

The new program will enroll as many as 40 students next fall and offer them a combination of Christian education and vocational training.

Hoekstra says he believes there's a need for such a program because of the number of students graduating from Christian high schools who might want a two-year vocational degree but didn't have a Christian option.
