Featured Testimonial

Houghton is a place where there is so much potential for growth, both in faith and friendship. I have made wonderful Christian friends who have encouraged me, helped me, and prayed for me. Houghton has become my second home.

Feel like you need some space?

Our 1,300-acre campus is yours to explore! Our stunning outdoor setting makes it easy to find a place to pray, think, study or play. Hike the trails in the Houghton Forest or splash in the creek that runs through campus. Camp out in our lean-tos or learn how to ski or snowboard. Try horseback riding, build a campfire and roast marshmallows, or kayak down the Genesee River.
