Preparing for Bible College: A Teacher's perspective
It all began with a young man coming to me and saying, "Preacher, I've been called to preach." It was becoming obvious that God had His hand on this man's life, but yet he could not afford to move, find another job, leave his family, and pay for college tuition. As I prayed about it, God was revealing others to me in the same difficult situation. Thus, the beginning of Centre Region Baptist College.
It is with that in mind that CRBC has extended its courses to include home study CD's, and all classes are free. There is a $12 per course charge for shipping, Freely we have received, freely will we give. There is never a charge for the in class studies.
Now in its fifth year, the course selection has never been bigger and easier for students to enroll. But what about the teaching side? Each year it seems there is more to do in preparation for the coming school year. New students mean new registration forms to process. There are books and other materials that must be ordered and be readied for the various classes. Class teaching notes must be organized and updated when appropriate. The list goes on.
It is my goal as president of CRBC to ensure each student receives a quality education. Each one that leaves our school or takes our classes via home study CD's deserves to be prepared for the ministry they are entering. That means more than just teaching a class.
Follow-up through the week is important. The students need a personal touch. They need mentoring and personal one-on-one guidance. We promise that to each of our students. True teaching takes time, but it is well worth the investment as I see our students go on to serve the Lord. They know they always have the support of Centre Region even after they graduate. Education lasts a life time.
