The Bachelor of Arts in Christian Studies (BACS) combines theological education with the history of Western thought in order to develop the intellectual and spiritual maturity of every graduate. The degree prepares students to serve God and others in whatever chosen vocation, including Christian ministries, through worldview development and biblical studies.
This BACS couples well with the Master of Arts in Christian Education program which is designed specifically to equip Great Commission ministers to lead, teach, and disciple with excellence.
“I chose TBC because the professors I met wanted to know who I was. They were not trying to sell me on why their college was great but wanted to know how God was working in my life and how they could be a part of it.”
