The Shepherd’s Bible College now offers opportunities to study part time while working full time. We’ve set up the Certificate in Christian Studies so that students can make several trips to the TSBC campus during the year and complete the entire Certificate in one year while working full time.
Relocate and Study Full Time
If you are serious about growth, consider relocating for a year to complete the entire Diploma in Biblical Studies in one year. Most students who relocate work part time while they study. This option allows our staff to invest in you through one to one interaction while you to immerse yourself into the local ministries.
There is tremendous thrill and excitement in taking time out to study deeper truths concerning our glorious Lord Jesus with others. It is a wonderful privilege and blessing to study the Word of God, discovering the most precious truths of the triune God, uncovering immeasurable spiritual wealth, the breathtaking beauty and the life transforming glory of Christ.
Choosing what Bible college to go to is a very important decision to make. If the Lord is calling you to study His Word so that you might serve and minister among His people and be an effective witness in a lost and evil world, then that calling should be met by the best choice of college. In the pursuing years the quality of your training and experience from Bible College will be reflected not only in your own life but in the lives of those you invest your life. It is crucial that you choose a Bible college that will give you that necessary foundation for personal spiritual growth and for the teaching and training of others to the glory of God.
