Associate degrees in Biblical Studies and Business Administration, as well as a Concentrated Bible Course Certificate program, are also available at the LBC | Capital – Philadelphia location.

Amira Williams (’21), a Biblical Studies major at LBC | Capital – Philadelphia, said she gained a multitude of lifelong, meaningful relationships with fellow believers while working toward her degree at LBC | Capital.

“(I also received) a much better grasp of God’s purpose for my life,” Amira says, “invaluable ministry experiences through worship as a member of Student Council, campus Chapel Ministry and the amazing Ally Center; real world studies of how to uphold my faith within my new profession; and, most of all, a year and a half of cherished memories in a Christ-centered learning environment—all of which I don’t think would have been adequately supplied if I would have attended any other college or university. There’s something about LBC.”

Ruth Reyes-Vega is a Criminal Justice/Biblical Studies major working toward graduation in December 2021.

“The interaction with peers makes the experience so much richer,” Ruth says of her face-to-face education at LBC | Capital. “Getting a biblical worldview on things while getting to know the worldview of my peers has both challenged and stretched me in the best way ever. In-person interaction made it much easier to achieve that.”

In-person Adult Education classes are just six weeks long and meet one evening per week in both Lancaster and Philadelphia. LBC | Capital’s Adult Education program is designed for busy adults who are working, raising families and serving their communities—yet want to finish their degree or get the degree they’ve always wanted.
