Located in Oxford-we are shaped by where we live 

The city of Oxford is surrounded by the University Colleges, and is founded on the University motto: Dominus illuminatio mea- 'The Lord is my light'. Members of the University understood this to mean that it was God who graciously provides the light of knowledge to all people. 

Foundations

The College was founded by Nick Bensted. Nick originally worked as a cross cultural missionary in Thailand and Myanmar before developing his work in education as a teacher and tutor. As a 'lifelong student' himself, Nick designed the College, including the 'Life in Oxford' programme with younger students in mind. He studied Theology at Oxford University and is applying this to church planting for peoples of all nations whether young or older. He is married to Josie, and they have a three year old daughter, Isabel (see below).

The tutorial - a proven method

The tutorial method here has an interesting and illustrious history. It was first recognized by tutors in Oxford at a Parisien arts college in the University of Paris more than 700 years ago. It was used by the resident head of the Arts College to supplement the teaching of the schools there. Early tutors in Oxford were the first to develop the method. Tutors were invariably from the church and understood their role as pastors or shepherds of the student, in combination with their academic responsibilities.
