Jesus commanded His followers to “go and make disciples of all nations.” At BBC, we prepare young men and women for a life of answering this mandate.
Our Missions program is designed to broaden your perspective by immersing you in God’s Word and equipping you for cross-cultural ministry. If your goal is to reach the lost through missions, our goal is to prepare you to do just that.
Our professors, former missionaries themselves, are deeply passionate about God’s Word and will assist you in developing the abilities necessary for living out the love of Christ in various cultures.

We give you a strong foundation to understand and apply biblical truth through 42 hours of Bible and theology courses. A required set of General Studies courses supplements that foundation and enables you to consider the world in which you will minister.
You will then build on this foundation with 40 credit hours studying the specific disciplines of your field and determining how you can best apply your unique strengths, gifts, and abilities. The core courses of this program include the following:
Church Planting and Church Growth
Dynamics of Discipleship
Making the program your own
You will complete a supervised, six-week missions apprenticeship. Your adviser will help you find the mission field that best matches your interests and abilities.

"The Missions professors really helped me understand the importance of meeting people where they are and making adjustments to be able to help meet their spiritual needs."
-Jordan Anthony, 2010 BBC graduate
Opportunities vary from teaching English as a second language in China and helping with writing ministries in Togo to church-planting in just about any city or rural region. The options available to you truly are endless. During these six weeks, you will put your education into action, earn academic credits, and make a difference in the lives of people around the world.
We know the process of leaving school and entering the mission field can be intimidating. That’s why we offer a Missions Seminar course designed to prepare you for that transition. Our desire is to give you more than an education; we want to do everything we can to help you reach the global ministry location to which you have been called.
Many options after graduation
You will earn a Bachelor of Science with a major in Missions. You will graduate having completed coursework equivalent to a double major in Bible and Missions. You may elect to receive a B.S. in Bible instead.
Mission agencies readily accept our graduates. This is primarily due to the solid Bible education and the emphasis on the necessary tools for cross-cultural ministry that you will receive here at BBC. Our graduates have been accepted by missions agencies such as the Association of Baptists for World Evangelism, Baptist Mid-Missions, and Evangelical Baptist Missions.
Our graduates are active all over the world in countries like South Africa, Ecuador, Italy, Ghana, Japan, Brazil, Chile, Peru, Germany, France, Canada, Hong Kong, Australia, and more. Many of our graduates pursue specific ministries, such as teaching the Bible, working on a pastoral staff, youth and women’s ministries, or church-planting on the mission field.
What they say
“The most valuable lesson I have learned is viewing the Bible as my final authority. Culturally, things are always going to look different, but I need to view everyone and everything through the Word of God. I am going to South Africa for my missionary apprenticeship, and I will be involved in discipleship, Bible studies, sports ministries, and wilderness ministries.”
