Real People
“Baptist Bible College offered a rigorous, biblical educational experience focused specifically on the ministry to which I have been called. The course work has offered practical and implementable content that encourages personal excellence to the glory of God. Coursework in school finance and personnel management have had direct application that was put in to practice as soon as I returned to school.”
- Mark McClelland, Dean of Students at Lima Christian School in Springwater, New York

“When I graduated from Baptist Bible College with a master’s degree in Educational Administration, I was teaching in the classroom. I am now getting ready to begin my third year as the principal of the middle school. I cannot say enough about how this program prepares a Christian school teacher or administrator to work within a Christian school. Not only are the professors building into you and increasing your knowledge, but you have the opportunity to rub elbows with other Christian school professionals that are doing the same thing you are. It gives you a chance to share exciting things and challenges. Iron sharpens iron.”
- Steve Bowers, Middle School Principal at Peoria Christian School in Peoria, Illinois
