Beecher Institute was the result of Pastor Loren Covarrubias‘ vision to take spiritual education and training to the next level, while also equipping students with practical skills necessary to be successful in all areas of life. Beecher Institute was named after Lyman Beecher, who was a leader in America’s Second “Great Awakening”- which changed the course of American History. True believers are the salt and light of the world (Matt. 5:13-16). They should both resist spiritual decline and favorably influence society. With these thoughts in mind, the key message from Beecher is that one person can change the world, understanding we do not do so by conforming to world thinking. We do not strive to seek the approval of man, but to be sensitive to God’s leading. Our vision is to train, prepare, and disciple students to be that person who is equipped to make a difference in their world.
