Thank you for considering National Bible College & Seminary in your

essential to prepare for what God has called you to do. Since 1983,
National Bible College & Seminary has been committed to the effective
training of men and women to face the challenges of ministry. Our academic
programs are rich in Bible foundation and practical in ministry
applications. Graduates of NBC&S have gone on to serve in a variety of
ministries around the world that include education, pastoral ministry, and
national evangelism. Our program is about ministry and at NBC&S students are engaged in
practical ministry while they attend classes. In fact, the 2,700-membership

students can implement training and gain experience that will last a
lifetime. This is an exciting time at NBC&S. God is blessing; our programs are
expanding; and students are catching a vision for the harvest that is ready
in these last days. As you seek God's direction for your academic needs, I
trust you will be inspired by the vision we share at NBC&S to provide
practical ministry skills for the harvest. We look forward to working with you to meet your educational needs. The
future is bright at NBC&S. Come and experience the difference. May God richly bless you in your academic endeavors. Sincerely, Dr. Aaron R. Jones

General Information
In 1983, Dr. T.L. Lowery, Senior Pastor of the National Church of God
established the National Bible Institute (NBI). He selected 14 of his top
leaders to train and equip for Christian ministry. For a curriculum, Dr.
Lowery selected the Church of God "Ministerial Internship Program" (MIP)
which is an extensive study of Bible Doctrine, Ministry, and other areas
necessary for success in Christian work. In 1984, Dr. T.L. Lowery
recruited Dr. Fred Snowden to assist in formalizing a one-year intensive
ministry training curriculum. In 1992, NBI was approved by the U.S. Department of Immigration and
Naturalization to accept foreign students. In September, 40 students
representing 21 foreign countries attended classes at the National Bible
Institute. In 1993, NBI received its non-governmental accreditation through the
Accrediting Commission International for Schools, Colleges, and Theological
Seminaries. This allowed NBI to award undergraduate degrees in Biblical
Studies. In 1996, NBI proudly changed their name to National Bible College
(NBC) and the first Bachelor Degrees were awarded. In 1998, the administration of the National Bible College began the task of
