Going to college is not for everyone. For some people, they would rather follow their faith and keep to their church for spiritual growth. However, there are also colleges that can help students get an education related to their faith and their religious beliefs. Among the best schools that offers this kind of education includes Boyce College in the state of Kentucky.
Boyce College is an undergraduate school run by the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. The school is located in Louisville, in the state of Kentucky. The school is located just a few hours from Chicago, St. Louis, and Atlanta. The school was first established in 1974 as the Boyce Bible School. The school offered a associate of arts degree. Then in 1998, Albert Mohler, the school’s president at the time, started a program to train future ministers. The program that opened offered several ministry related bachelor’s degree programs.
As with most bible schools, Boyce College’s doctrinal integrity is considered to be an important aspect of the college. The school considered it necessary for a school to define its theological beliefs and adhere to them, not only in academics, but also as a way of life. Among the courses offered by the college includes the Associate of Arts in Biblical and Theological Studies, the Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education or Humanities, Christian Worldview and Apologetics, or Expository Preaching and Pastoral Leadership, the Bachelor of Science in Biblical Studies in Church Ministry (this course offers a concentration in either Children’s Ministry, Christian Leadership, or Women’s Studies), Counseling, Missions, Music Ministry, or Youth Ministry. With the exception of a few courses, almost all courses and degrees at the school are intended for transfer to other colleges at the discretion of the receiving school.
There are a lot of student activities found in the school's campus including prayer meetings led by students, intramural sports, street evangelism, and annual talent shows. Campus life at the school is intended to reflect the school’s beliefs, but still give students the freedom to express themselves. The school also competes in the NCCAA Division II Mid-East Region, in the sport of men’s basketball. The school colors are blue and gold, and the school nickname are the bulldogs.
Choosing the right school or college is a very important decision and every person has to take their time and make sure that they have made the right choice before committing to a school. There are a lot of options available in each state and location, and each person can take their time in making sure of their choice. In the end, it is each student will ultimately benefit from their decision for the rest of their lives. Choosing Boyce College can only help a student improve their life and open up new opportunities for the future.
