The heartbeat of Baptist Bible Seminary is to raise up servant leaders grounded in the Word of God for the work of the gospel. With six advanced degrees including two doctorate options, BBS trains men for “rightly dividing the word of truth”to impact people wherever God places them.

BBS graduates are currently serving all over the world, including countries like Myanmar, India, South Africa, and Germany.

Unique to BBS’ Master of Divinity, students complete a one-year, paid internship, giving them practical hands-on ministry experience while fulfilling coursework. The Director of Internships works hard to find internship placements that match students’ ministry direction and goals.

Nine concentrations are available for the Master of Divinity and Master of Ministry programs, allowing students to tailor their education to fit their needs and calling. Concentrations range from Church Education and Church Planting, to Pastoral Counseling and Global Ministry.

Each BBS professor holds a terminal degree in their field and are busy publishing books and various articles, yet no student goes unnoticed. Students are personally mentored by faculty throughout their courses and internships.

Though nestled tightly in the Pocono Mountains, students can complete degrees from virtually anywhere. Three degrees can be achieved entirely online, and others can be done partially online through module classes and non-resident programs.

  1. Virtually every seminary talks about the importance of balancing academic excellence with practical ministry experience. But Baptist Bible Seminary is the only seminary I know of that actually excels at doing so. The degree programs are intentionally structured so that students receive a top-notch theological education while also building actual ministry experience in local churches. Professors at BBS are first-class scholars in their fields, but they also have years of pastoral experience doing real life, “in the trenches” ministry. This enables them to apply superb biblical and theological scholarships to the problems that actually exist in the sometimes messy and always unpredictable world of vocational ministry.

    As a PhD student at BBS, I have especially appreciated the school’s stand for traditional dispensational theology. It is extremely difficult to find committed dispenstonal schools that offer post-graduate research degrees, and many that seem to fit the bill are actually committed to progressive dispensationalism. But BBS stands proudly in the tradition of Chafer, Walvoord, and Ryrie. This in and of itself is enough to earn the school high marks in my book; the flexible program delivery options, rigorous academics, strong emphasis on biblical Hebrew and Koine Greek, and low student-faculty ratios are icing on the proverbial cake. I am pleased to recommend BBS to all prospective (or current) pastors, parachurch leaders, and Christian academicians, without reservation or hesitation.

  2. As a pastor for the past fourteen years, I desired to pursue a PhD that was both academically rigorous and Biblically conservative. I encountered this rare distinction at BBS. Currently in my second year of PhD studies, the knowledge and insights I have gained from godly professors and challenging coursework has proved to be an invaluable asset to my ministry. I truly appreciate the emphasis that BBS places on mastery of Biblical languages and theological method. Furthermore, the module structure of the coursework has allowed me to pursue a terminal degree without having to uproot my family or leave the ministry that I love. I would highly recommend that any ministry professional who has a hunger for the word of God consider continuing their education at BBS!

  3. In just two short years, thanks to some communication and life-experience credits, I’ve been able to complete my bachelor’s degree and move into the M. Min. through the Accelerated Graduate Degree Program. The best part for me is all of this has been done online.

    What is often missed when searching for a doctrinally sound seminary, and perhaps never even considered, are the relationships a student makes with his professors and staff. The men of BBS have helped me to fulfill my ministry responsibilities thanks to their grounded reflections.

    I look forward to calling BBS my alma mater!

  5. I loved my experience at BBS. The reason I chose BBS was their intentional choice to not only prepare students academically but also practically for future ministry.

    What is the point of going to seminary if you are not prepared to serve in the role you desire to serve in the future? Too many pastors and ministry leaders say, “seminary never prepared me for this.”

    While no seminary can cover everything perfectly, I don’t know of another seminary in the country that as intentionally focuses on preparing its students to thrive in their future ministry positions.

    I am thankful to now be part of a church with several BBS grads that is launching multiple new campuses and reaching a city in the northeast which is one of the least churched in our country.

    Without both the practical and theological education I benefited from in my days at BBS, I don’t think our church would be where it is today.

    If you have further questions about my experience at BBS and whether or not it is the right choice for you, I’d love to talk with you.
