News & Events

  1. A 2006 graduate of ABC, Elsbeth is a missionary wife and mom of five, living and doing ministry in South Korea. "There was a time, shortly after graduation, when I asked myself, 'What is the value of a Bible College education?' I needed a job and well, I felt like it wasn't giving me a 'edge.' But now, I can't even express how thankful I am for the experience." "As I write this, I look down from my 18th floor apartment at the busy streets of my city. As far as the eye can see, tall buildings house thousands of people. I can hear my kids playing and laughing behind me. This is my mission field. I am well equipped by God to do His work in this place, at this time in history. I'm so grateful for the training at ABC that put the right tools in my hands and showed me the right path to follow." "What is the value of a Bible college education? Priceless, because you are investing in eternity and reaching eternal souls. What is the 'edge'? In a world of empty hope and dangerous lies, God's word cuts to the heart. Don't enter the battle without this sword and the skills to use it!" #alumniservants
