GRACE BIBLE COLLEGE & SEMINARY
Grace Bible College & Seminary (GBCS) was founded in May 2003 in Roanoke, AL under the leadership of our Founder/President - Lyndon B. Hutcherson, as the educational and training ministry of Amazing Grace Ministries which is designed to train, equip, and mobilize believers for works of service through global evangelism and discipleship. GBCS serves as the official educational and ministry institution for the Ambassadors Ministerial Fellowship and Christ Universal Church. We offer five programs of study from Certificate to Doctorate level, which can be studied online, by mail, or in the classroom at one of our local Network Training Centers. Since it's inception, GBCS has reached more than 16 nations and equipped hundreds of students around the world, who are obeying the great commission to go therefore and make disciples of all nations. Grace Bible College & Seminary is accredited by the International Association of Christian Schools, which provides accreditation for Christian schools, churches, and ministries with a vision for global evangelism and discipleship. Grace Bible College & Seminary is committed to helping our students grow in their faith, increase their knowledge of the Bible, and develop their ministry gifts. Qualified graduates are
eligible to apply for licensing/ordination through the Ambassadors Ministerial Fellowship, church planting opportunities through Christ Universal Church, as well as, teaching opportunities through our Satellite School program; which allows graduates to offer classroom courses to train and equip others in their local communities. We have students and ministers who are studying with us from many different denominational and non-denominational churches. Qualified graduates are eligible for ministerial licensing and ordination through our ministerial fellowship, as well as, satellite school, church planting and missions opportunities around the world and our online courses are available in more than 20 languages.
At GBCS, we believe education should start with the goal and work backwards; because no wise person charts a course until he/she decides on a destination. The wise educator will decide exactly what end they want to accomplish in the lives of their students. They then carefully chart a course that will lead them to arrive at this desired end. Our desired goal or mission is to make disciples, who will make disciples. Therefore, the programs of study and courses that we offer are designed to equip our students with the necessary tools they need in order to carry out that mission. Grace Bible College & Seminary, by its very nature does not have the same goal as a public or secular school. And because if we do not share the same goal, we do not share the same methods? Since we do not share the same destination, we do not share the same route. And finally, because we do not desire the same answer, we do not try to solve the same problem? Most secular schools, main focus is... where are you academically; but our main focus is... where are you spiritually? Before enrolling in GBCS, you should ask yourself a few questions. (1) What is my goal? (2) What is God's plan for my life? and (3) How will I use my program of study to reach my goals and fulfill God's plan for my life?
In His Service,
