BBC: Christian Bible College Campus Life | Ministry Development

Preparing future global Christian leaders requires not only effective classroom instruction but also real experiences in real-life settings.

Our purpose
Quizzes and exams alone cannot measure everything BBC seeks to develop in your life. Through real-life ministry you learn to serve others as you develop your capacity for leadership.

We want you to put the knowledge you gain in class into practice. Ministry Development will help to grow your capacity for ministry as you explore your strengths and different areas of interest.

Putting it into practice
It begins with a ministry choice appropriate to your gifts and goals. It continues with ministry mentoring, all channeled through an interactive ministry development web site.

If you are a current student, a ministry coach, or a mentor, you can log in with your user name and password and see what's happening in Ministry Development.

The student development staff, ministry advisors, mentors, and faculty members, will come alongside to give advice, guide and encourage you, and regularly check-in to see how you’ re doing. We also encourage you to seek input from long-term mentors back home.

Where to get involved
There are numerous ministry opportunities in nearby churches, in the community, and even on campus.

You may assist a church plant, work with inner-city youth, learn to teach, disciple inmates, bring hope to nursing home residents, use sports as outreach, share the gospel in NYC, counsel teens, assist nonprofits, preach, minister through music, develop a new ministry . . . anything is possible!

A dynamic part of the Ministry Development program is a ministry fair held in the fall. Area churches and other ministry leaders come on campus to meet and interact with our students. This opportunity is a good way to learn about possible places for ministry.

BBC views your participation in a local church as a crucial element in your preparation for future leadership. Your involvement not only plays a vital part of your development but also adds to the growth and development of the church.

Students are expected to be faithfully involved in a local church whose doctrine is compatible with the training you receive at BBC. View list of area churches that you can become involved in here.

See the Student Handbook for more details on church attendance.
