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: 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,” Amira said. “There’s something about LBC.”

“We are so excited to welcome prospective students to campus again this spring,” said Jared Yoder, Director of Admissions. “Visiting campus is such an important way to get to know the personality and culture of a college, so we are grateful that students interested in LBC will have the opportunity to interact with our staff, faculty and student body. We are blessed to be able to engage in face-to-face learning during the 2021-22 academic year, and our hope is that many of our future students will get to see the ‘life-on-life’ aspect that occurs on our campus firsthand.”

Marteal Pitts (’14), Manager of Advising & Retention at LBC | Capital – Washington, D.C., has extensive experience both as a student and in advising and working with other adult students. She is uniquely sensitive to the challenges adult learners face: “Adult students need as much care as young students … the difference being they’ve already shaped a lifestyle. It’s constantly a balancing act.”
In her role, Marteal ministers to students with love. “I am a counselor, a cheerleader, an advocate fighting for their rights,” she says. “My students call me all the time. They call me when they’re celebrating … [I’m] a friend helping them along the journey.”
