When our students graduate, they have become transformed into capable and confident servant ministry leaders. Ready and eager to counsel, teach, coach, perform and serve in their chosen ministry. Ready to live by God’s Word and encourage others to do the same.If I had to use one word to describe the experience of attending Lancaster Bible College, it would be “transformational.” Our students, both undergraduates and adult learners, are transformed by many things: our excellent academic programs, our dedicated faculty and a dynamic and caring campus community.
