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 individuals 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.
