BIOS provides solid theological education in a cohort-based environment. This means that our average class size is 15 students, assuring that you’ll get the personal, hands-on education that traditional Bible colleges can’t offer. You will most likely go through all your core courses with the same small group of fellow-students, a mini-community within the larger BIOS family. Our unique mentoring approach equips mentors who guide students through program assessments, development of personal growth plans, and ministry strategy and practicum planning.
If you need to work while attending BIOS, you’ll love the job-friendly school schedule. We want you to graduate debt-free, so our program is geared toward students who need to work in order to make that possible.
Do you need ministry credentials such as licensure or ordination? No problem! In fact, the inclusion of an optional credentialing track means that by the time you complete your degree you will already have your ministerial credentials through the Christian and Missionary Alliance (CMA).
But the best part of the BIOS program is that you will have hands-on ministry and teaching practicums throughout your four years of study. This means that by the time you graduate, you will be a seasoned, experienced leader.
