No matter who you are, if you are a follower of Jesus, He has called you to be a leader. This has been the passion of Baptist College of Ministry from the very beginning . . . to train leaders for the local church. However, we don't want to just train you to be a leader. We want to equip you to be a leader who can train other leaders. This means that your college experience is not just a casual social event; it is an intense "internship in leadership."


for others
Ministry is a noble calling that demands rigorous preparation, because you're not just trying to gain knowledge for yourself. When you are preparing to lead, you're seeking to master what you're learning so that you can effectively give it to others. That's why you'll be held to a high standard of excellence at BCM, not just in academics, but in every area of your training.

Meet our Faculty
I learned that I am not just teaching the students in my classroom, but I am teaching their children and grandchildren. We can reach the generations to come by teaching, one student at a time.
Miriam Kagin, '18

There are a lot of schools out there focused on training people for a wide variety of vocations, but that's not why we are here. We exist for one purpose—to train laborers for Great Commission ministry. This razor-sharp focus permeates everything you'll do as a student at BCM. If you believe God has called you to serve Him in full-time ministry, then BCM is here to help you prepare for and embrace that calling.

The class work and practical ministry went hand in hand during my training; they shaped me to be a leader who believes that God can reach the world in this generation and use me wherever He places me.
Aquila Darimani, '12 - Ghana, West Africa

In an age of impossibilities, God is still looking for men and women who believe Him for miracles. At BCM, we believe that college shouldn’t undermine your faith; it should build it. Through rigourous academics, intense mentorship, and hands-on ministry experience, you will be challenged to believe God in the practical areas of every day life, and to expect God to use YOU to change this generation.
