Why did you Choose Boise Bible College?
I was very impressed by the integrity, friendliness, and passion of Boise Bible College to raise up kingdom workers. A strong calling was placed on my heart to be a part of the BBC team to help train Christian counselors and send out psychology minded graduates.
The desire of BBC to pursue a balance of clinical and Biblical counseling is refreshing and matches my beliefs regarding what will help prepare students to serve in any ministry to which they are called.
