Preparation for Full-time Ministry

Teaching in a Bible college this past few blocks has made me very busy but has been very fulfilling. After our last summer youth camp there were a handful of youth who decided to enroll in Baptist College for Leadership (BCL), a ministry of our mother church and has accreditation from Liberty Baptist University (LBU).

Right now, that is the only accreditation BCL has but getting the CHED accreditation is one of the institution’s future plans. Students who are enrolled at the moment are well aware of this situation. They are like earning an accredited online degree but they are doing the regular and traditional schooling. What’s most important is that those who have expressed some desire to serve God as pastors or missionaries will be able to prepare and will be able to learn what they need to learn as they serve in their own local churches.
