Our Philosophy and Vision

Most practicing Christians sense deep in their hearts that they know far too little about their faith. The Road @ Chapel Hills has developed an unique and innovative training experience to address this need. A new approach is required. Outlier University provides in-depth and integrated training to raise the tide of spiritual maturity within the local congregation. It is in-house and accessible to every member of the congregation. It produces Christians who are passionate, all-in, wholehearted disciples of Jesus Christ. We call these extra-ordinary Christians Outliers.

An Outlier is prepared to engage the world with an informed, innovative and robust faith. An Outlier is a winsome Christ-follower who will dare to be different – a disciple of Jesus Christ who is progressing on a deeper journey – a “road less traveled.”

Jesus was an Outlier. No other person; no other teacher; no other leader has impacted the world for the better more than Jesus Christ. Our vision at Outlier University is to produce wholehearted Christ-followers who think differently and love differently thereby making an extraordinary difference by propagating His work in the world.

Our Mission and Goals

Our mission is to build wholehearted disciples of Jesus Christ through classroom training and experiential learning centered around the Great Commandment: “Love God with all your heart and soul, mind and strength, and your neighbor as yourself” (Mk 12:28-31).

Outlier University exists to:

1.  Equip learners with Bible-anchored historical and scientific knowledge, along with logic and critical thinking skills, to engage popular culture and make disciples of Jesus Christ (Eph 4:11-16).

2.  Develop learners with winsome relational skills that facilitate their love of neighbor and service to them, and with the compassion of Christ (Lk 4:17-21).

3.  Provide opportunities for Christians and non-Christians to work through tough questions, doubts, and objections to the Christian faith, as well as to develop needed answers for themselves (Acts 20:17-31).
