“The GBC Master’s Program has challenged me to grow in all levels of life and ministry, including my personal walk with God, my marriage, leadership in the local church, preaching, biblical counseling, and my overall calling to ministry. The teachers and staff are challenging and encouraging as we apply class content to life and ministry. Not only am I more aware of my role and how culture impacts leadership and ministry—I am better equipped to live out the Gospel and bring its transformation to people I come into contact with. This course of study moves the student toward significant growth in Christ; as such it is worth all the time, energy, effort, and financial investment.”
— Caleb Befus, 2017 Graduate

Responding to the call
We are all called to ministry. At Grace Bible College, we believe that God calls all believers to be ambassadors for Jesus Christ. Whether your specific calling is to full-time pastoral ministry, small-business ownership, or service in your church and community, we all serve God in unique ministry capacities.

Information becomes outdated and ministry needs are ever changing. We are constantly being challenged to fulfill those changing needs while staying rooted in God’s word. As we step out to answer God’s call, we need the support of a community of likeminded servant-leaders who stand committed to the gospel of Jesus Christ in a rapidly changing culture.

God is a relational God, and we’re created in His image. From top to bottom, we are created for relationships. At Grace Bible College, we are committed to personally educating students through transformative relationships. This is no less true online than it is in our traditional on-campus classrooms.

Our Graduate Studies program is 100% online, with no residency requirements. And our cohort module allows you to journey through your education with a group of likeminded friends. Like you, these close colleagues are in the trenches of ministry every day. You’ll have the support you need, and you’ll be able to provide support to one another in an engaging online community.
