Programs of Study

Berean Bible College, in an effort to achieve its objective of offering a balanced Christian education, offers four Major courses of study: Ministerial, Missionary, Biblical Counseling, and Christian Education. These specific disciplines have specialized courses to more thoroughly equip the student in each field. Its aim is to further develop biblical study and theological skills, encourage spiritual growth and
strengthen practical abilities needed for serving Christ and His Church at home and abroad.


We recognize that a degree or a diploma does not necessarily produce a ministry. Our primary purpose is not to issue degrees and diplomas, but to assist individuals in
developing their God-given talents. The degrees and diplomas recognize systematic preparation, and are not in themselves qualifications for ministry. Therefore, Berean Bible College does not ordain, license or offer placement assistance to graduates.

  1. A.Vocational Objectives-Course Majors

    1. Ministerial
This major is designed to furnish the student with knowledge of the Bible and to prepare individuals for full-time service as a pastor or an evangelist. Training includes preparation in such basic functions of the ministry as homiletics, exegesis, evangelism, pastoral counseling, church administration, conducting various types of worship services, and business meetings.

   2. Missionary
This course major is designed to furnish the student with knowledge of the Bible and prepare the individual for full time service in the mission field. It is similar to the Ministerial course except that it is intended to prepare students for service in missions, both at home and abroad. Special emphasis is placed on practical
training on how to establish indigenous churches.

    3. Christian Education
This course major is designed to finish the student with knowledge of the Bible, basic Christian Education principles and to prepare the individual for full-time service in the Christian Education program of a local church as an educational director and other related areas.

   4. Biblical Counseling
This course major is designed to furnish the student with knowledge of the Bible, as well as presuppositions and methods of consistent Biblical counseling. The student will be trained to view problems in life from God's perspective and will be encouraged to develop a methodology for change, which is in harmony with the Scriptures.

The following schedules are given to show the development of a full four-year degree program and the progressive sequence of studies offered. The school reserves the right to offer courses on alternate years or as needed. Any scheduled class may be withdrawn if the demand is not sufficient.
