Prepare for ministry
Bachelor's Degree Program
Our basic two-year program offers the student a Bachelor of Biblical Studies degree (BBS). A total of 128 semester hours are earned in Bible and related Ministry courses in this program. Of these 128 semester hours, 57 are in Bible books alone. That means that each student will spend 912 classroom hours studying the Bible text during the two years program. This extensive course of study gives our students an excellent foundational knowledge of God's Word and is the cornerstone for sound Bible preaching. This program is specially designed for those who are preparing to be full-time preachers, missionaries, and other full-time ministry workers. Classes in Church History, Missions, Evangelism, Greek and others all contribute to this well-rounded ministry education.
It's more than just book learning...
Practical experience is gained through participation in campaigns, visitation, preaching and teaching Bible classes and personal home Bible studies. This real-world training not only helps prepare our students for ministry work, it also helps them learn how to start and maintain these types of programs of work in the field.
The Great Commission is not just talked about...it's experienced!
Mission and evangelism classes help our students better understand how to win the lost. While participating in local campaigns and Bible studies their skills can be sharpened by real situations and study. each student is required to participate in 4 campaigns during their two-year program.
Graduates of the two year program who also have 24 hours of approved previous training will be awarded the Bachelor of Theology (BTh) degree.
The Bachelor of Theology of Degree is a more advanced degree than the Bachelor of Biblical Studies. It reflects that additional college work has been done beyond the requirements for the BBS. These hours do not need to be in a Bible or Ministry related area. They just need to be accredited hours from a College or University. In order to receive credit, a transcript of these college courses needs to be submitted to the Academic Dean.
