One aspect that enriches and is somewhat unique for the European context is that many of our students live on campus. Our dormitory was built in 2005 and can accommodate up to 63 students at any time. Several other students live within biking distance of the school. All of this makes for a warm and vibrant community life where our faith is lived out beyond the classroom.What is life like in the residential community? Learning to live, study and serve with others from around the world brought together in one place bears fruit in our lives as our Christian life is lived out in the community. We study together, eat together in our dining hall and often do trips together. Even though 20 to 30 nations are often represented on the campus, there is a deep fellowship that is often built cross-culturally. We support each other in daily life.Living in this diversity of cultures does have its challenges. People from different countries or continents have different cultural practices, but we see it as God’s blessing to us in the form of a diverse community. It also makes for enjoyable and sometimes challenging conversations as theological topics are discussed, debated and applied.Part of life at Tyndale is helping out with the duties and chores needed to keep the school operational. Serving one another as we study and learn is part of our holistic approach to training for Christian ministry. Being a missionary school, Tyndale does not have the funds to employ separate workers for various upkeep, gardening, lawn care, maintaining the dining hall and similar jobs. We all pitch in and serve our Lord and one another through campus duties.Outside of classroom hours, your day is yours for studying, reading, doing your campus duties, relaxing, etc. We highly recommend that all students get involved in a local church. There are many English-speaking, international churches available. There are also hundreds of churches representing different countries and communities around the globe in Amsterdam and Rotterdam. Rotterdam alone has over 170 churches of people who have moved to the Netherlands from Africa, Asia, and the Middle East.
