Berean Bible College

Rev. Bobby San Miguel


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.

Who Is Our STAFF?

Rev. Bobby San Miguel returned to BBC as our Dean in 2010.  Mrs. Christy Bradley came in as our Registrar in 2015.

Rev. Doug Balcombe

History of BBC

We Answer

"Excellence in Preparation"

Mrs. Christy Bradley


Founded by George and Rita Evans, in September 1971, BBC has been equipping Christian laborers with a biblical foundation for more than 40 years. Originally housed in San Diego, Berean moved its campus to the lovely suburb of Poway, CA in 1991. The BBC campus is now located on the property of Living Way Church. Rev. Douglas Balcombe, Senior Pastor of Living Way Church, serves as President of our institution. From its inception the vision of our founder and President Emeritus, Dr. G. E. Evans has been to provide an institution that encompsses the diversity of the entire Christian community, teaching and training those desiring to serve God more effectively. Local pastors are invited to instruct classes in their areas of expertise, challenging and educating students regardless of denomination.
