Summer of Success
Summer of Success was in full swing on the Corban University campus from July 25 to August 14!
With the help of a dedicated team of South Korean leaders, Corban staff and faculty, and community members, Corban provided an incredible cross-cultural experience for these students, from eating s’mores around the campfire to tackling a ropes course, visiting the Oregon coast, practicing their English, and diving into God’s Word. God is good!

UPH Graduates Fill Teaching Positions
Corban’s partnership with Universitas Pelita Harapan equips graduates of Teachers College (TC) and International Teachers College (ITC) with Bachelor of Education degrees. These Corban University alumni fill teaching positions throughout Christian schools in Indonesia and Southeast Asia. Graduation ceremonies this summer brought the total number of Corban University graduates at UPH to over 1900.
Biblical Hebrew Graduates Honored
Corban’s global reach also touches Israel, where the 4.2.20 Foundation and Institute of Biblical Languages and Translation are committed to advancing access and engagement with the whole Word of God for every language, culture and people. On June 29, 2019, twenty-two students completed the 48-credit Corban University Graduation Certificate in Biblical Hebrew Translation. The eight-month graduate certificate equips beginner-level participants with the skills necessary to translate the Old Testament directly into their native language
