"I am thankful for the Ministry of WCBC and the influence on my life. I am especially thankful for the strong Bible-based Master’s Degree I received from there while still maintaining my ministry. I was challenged by the depth of the classes as well as stretched to grow more. Without a doubt, I am better prepared to serve Christ because of this Master’s Program."

"The master’s program at WCBC is the most practical educational opportunity that I’ve experienced. What I learned in class in the morning I was able to put into practice in our school in the afternoon. It strengthened my mind and my ministry."
Here’s how the program helped me in ministry. As a youth pastor, I get asked a lot of different questions every week. I need to know how to answer these questions biblically and to give a reason of why we do things the Bible way. This program has helped me grow in understanding of deep issues and in teaching our young people Biblical truths.
Here’s how the program helped me in ministry. Through intense study of the Scriptures, I can teach deeper truths of the Bible to my Sunday school class. It was a thrill to see their knowledge and understanding of the Word of God grow as I applied various lessons that I have learned myself. I can help my pastor with counseling during a busy season and be a more effective administrator.
