5. Contact your references
Pastoral Reference Form
All students are required to submit a pastoral reference form. Your pastoral reference should be completed and sent to BBC by the pastor or youth pastor of the church you attend. If neither individual has known you for at least a year, or if your pastor or youth pastor is a relative, please ask an adult youth leader, Sunday school teacher, or deacon who knows you well to complete this reference.

High School Reference Form
Your high school reference form should be completed and sent to BBC by your principal, guidance counselor, or teacher. If you are home-schooled, please have your program evaluator complete this form. If you have been out of high school for at least two years, this reference is not required.

Transfer Reference Form
If you are transferring from a Christian college, please submit a transfer reference form. The transfer reference should be completed by a resident director, professor, or dean.
