Lancaster Bible College was founded by Henry J. Heydt in September 1933. Eight day students and 14 evening students were enrolled in the original class, which met in the Convention Hall at West Orange and Pine Streets in Lancaster. William J. Randolph ’50 succeeded Heydt as president. From 1954-1961, President Randolph moved the school toward accreditation, and the size of the campus grew, initiated by a gift of land in 1957 from Mr. and Mrs. J. Martin Esbenshade.
In 1961, the school’s academic dean, Stuart E. Lease, was elected president. During his 17-year presidency, the student body grew to more than 400 students, and the campus expanded to 36 acres. Finally, in 1973, the school earned provisional approval to grant the degree of Bachelor of Science in Bible, and the school officially became Lancaster Bible College (LBC).
When Dr. Gilbert A. Peterson began his duties as president in 1979, he focused on debt reduction. Within 5 years, LBC raised more than $500,000 toward financial stability and more than $1.5 million toward the school’s endowment. Additional land was purchased, bringing the campus size to 100 acres.
In 1999, Dr. Peter W. Teague became LBC’s fifth president. Since then, the Good Shepherd Chapel, Olewine Dining Commons, Peterson Hall, Charles Frey Academic Center and Donald H. Funk Athletic Field were completed. In February 2007, the Middle States Commission on Higher Education approved LBC’s offering the Bachelor of Science in Bible degree completely online.
On February 1, 2020, Lancaster Bible College welcomed its sixth president, Dr. Thomas L. Kiedis. Dr. Kiedis comes to LBC from his role as senior pastor of Spanish River Church in Boca Raton, Florida where he has served since 2010. He is no stranger to LBC | Capital. He has been a member of the college’s corporation since 2012, an adjunct faculty member and served as the lead mentor for the church planting concentration of the Master of Arts in Ministry program from 2012 to 2018.
