  1. What Bible College did you attend? Fairhaven Baptist College 
  2. Did you graduate? What was your Major? Yes /  Pastoral Theology
  3. What years did you attend? 1991 - 1995
  4. What did you like best about the college? I liked the fact that I received a lot of hands on training from the church. Street preaching to Bus ministry I did it all.
  5. What did you least like about the college? I though they treated us students too child like. I don't mind rules, but though some of them was for elementary kids.
  6. Would you recommend that school now? IDK. There has been a lot of changes so I'd have to do research to see where they stand now.
  7. In your opinion, did the school properly train you for the ministry? Yes they did. The only area I felt they didn't was they had too many young teachers that just graduated.

As much as a small Bible College can.

I tell people that I learned so much in three years at Bible college, but so much more in the next three years as a training associate, and so much in the time since.

There is so much that can't be taught, only learned.........

Hi BroMatt,

I went to an Apostolic Bible College in New Zealand in the `80`s. It was open to other denominations also. I have`majored` in eschatology since then by follow up teaching in Australia. I have found that it has served me well - discussing on forums  and in life situations. The people I meet are very interested in what God`s word says regarding our world and thus I believe I have been well equipped to serve the Lord in this area.  

regards, Marilyn.

  1. What Bible College did you attend? Master's Baptist College (Fargo, North Dakota)
  2. Did you graduate? What was your Major  2018, Church Secretarial
  3. What years did you attend? 2015-2018
  4. What did you like best about the college? They have practical classes so you can get a good taste on what the ministry will really be like, the pastors at the church really invest in the students
  5. What did you least like about the college? They operate like a large college, instead of a smaller college (not necessarily wrong, I had just wanted to go to a college with a smaller college atmosphere.)
  6. Would you recommend that school now? Yes
  7. In your opinion, did the school properly train you for the ministry? I will be graduating this year, and while I believe that the school is doing its best to adequately train its students in every way, I think that there are things in life/ ministry that you will have to learn by experience

  1. What Bible College did you attend? Heartland Baptist Bible College
  2. Did you graduate? What was your Major? Yes. Missions at first but switched to Pastoral.
  3. What years did you attend? 2002-2008
  4. What did you like best about the college? They were strong on Biblical doctrines, KJV, Baptist Faith, and many of the teachers were long time (current and retired) piratical ministers in their field of teaching.
  5. What did you least like about the college? They operate too much like a secular college, over emphasized the one year bible certificate, they started hiring their best graduates just after they graduated and used non-baptist martial for some of the classes (every book except the KJV bible had a disclaimer from the college in it).
  6. Would you recommend that school now? Yes. Its still useful for finding a good wife and networking. :laugh: 
  7. In your opinion, did the school properly train you for the ministry? In some ways they did but in some practical ways they did not. I personally feel that I would have been better served to learn a trade while training under a local pastor rather than going to a college. As I consider the college format in general, in light of the biblical methods, I do not think its the best way to train men for the ministry.
