Current bottom line for you to plant your spiritual seeds here: This program is rooted in "Prosperity Consciousness" meaning that the student "tithes" for each course for one year. The minimum tithe is $1 per day for one year per course. Tithing is voluntary. Students may enroll in the primary course, "Foundations" but must begin the practice of tithing prior to starting any additional course. The Kiwi's are very strong in prosperity consciousness and thus have some wonderful scholarship programs for ten percent of all the students attending, in which students can do internships to fulfill their tithes.
