Welcome to John Witherspoon College
There is something here for almost anyone—whether you are a young man or woman preparing to make one of your most important life decisions, a parent concerned about the life-shaping experience your son or daughter will have in college, an adult learner wanting to grow deeper in the knowledge of God and His Word, if you just want to know more about JWC or about what’s happening at JWC, or if you want to know how to support JWC, or get connected, or get involved (or even if you just want to know who John Witherspoon was!)—all this and more you will find here.
But above all, you will catch a glimpse in these pages of the glory of God, by whose wisdom, providence, power, and faithfulness the dream of Christ-centered higher education in the Black Hills is becoming a reality. The story of John Witherspoon College bears witness to Him. His truth is the bedrock foundation for our pursuit of knowledge—for as Augustine said, “all truth is God’s truth.” The work of His Spirit throughout history provides the great Christian intellectual tradition we seek to reclaim—our motto, Fides Quaerens Intellectum (“Faith Seeking Understanding”), is just as relevant today as it was for Anselm, the peerless scholar of the Middle Ages. We see the goodness and faithfulness of God in His supply of resources, in His gift of a campus, and in His wise guidance and sovereign control that have made this institution possible. And we find in the love of God the very reason for our existence—to equip a new revolutionary generation of salt-and-light leaders in a dark and decaying culture. The story of John Witherspoon College is a God-kind of story.
