Our Philosophy and Vision

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 & Goals

Our Mission & 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).
