If vocational ministry is your calling, CBC is the place to be. CBC's proven excellence in academics, hands-on ministry, strong campus community, and powerful spiritual atmosphere add up to a life-changing college experience for next generation world-changers." - Rev. Alan Baker, Campus Pastor and Professor



CBC has such a loving, family atmosphere with the greatest emphasis being the focus on God and all He has to pour into us as we train for ministry. Also, there are great opportunities to learn leadership skills and gain experience in the area God has called us to." - Elizabeth Foltz, current sophomore



I love CBC because God shows up here. You can sense God's presence everywhere, from the chapel services to the classrooms." - Jacob Clark, current junior
