It's not a data-entry process. It's discovery.

We consider your application process to be a time of discovery. It’s the time we find out what God is doing in your life (through your essay) and where we hear more about your personal story (through your interview). We take a very thoughtful and prayerful approach to who you are and we want God’s best for your future.

Application Checklist

Before you begin — we encourage you to use our application checklist as a tool to gather the appropriate information needed for your Taylor application - this way, there won't be any stops along your way. Feel free to find your counselor or contact us if you have questions or need assistance.

Share Your Story
Please answer ONE question to upload into your application.
Minimum 400 words.

1. We love to hear stories of God's work. Share a time you experienced God at work in a specific circumstance in your life.

2. 1 John 2:6 says "Whoever claims to live in Him must live as Jesus did." In what ways are you striving to walk as Jesus did?

3. Why have you chosen to give your life to Jesus Christ?
