FACULTY & STUDENT MINISTRIES
MBC faculty and students are all involved in the ministries of our local churches, but we do all we can to assist you and the ministry of your church as well! Here are some ways you might bring the ministry of MBC to you!
ServantSong is a worship ministry of Montana Bible College. The group exists to enhance MBC’s encouragement of and relationship with the regional church. Our philosophy is to give and to serve, which leads us to charge no fee and focus on a ministry of strengthening rather than self-promotion. ServantSong is an ensemble usually comprised of six vocalists, a pianist, and sometimes another instrument. They are accompanied on ministry engagements by one of the MBC faculty – usually Ryan Ward, who teaches at MBC and oversees student recruitment. ServantSong sings a variety of music carefully selected to honor Christ and lead His people in worship. They also supplement their music with short drama, personal testimonies, or puppet presentations. They are happy to function as a worship team to lead in your congregational worship, and many churches request that the MBC faculty member preach as well. For more information, or to request this ministry in your church, please e-mail Ryan Ward or call the MBC office at 406-586-3585.
Your church may be in need of pulpit supply from time to time. Perhaps your pastor is on vacation, sabbatical, or medical leave. Perhaps your church is in a transition time between pastors. Maybe you feel it’s important for the people of your congregation to be exposed to the ministry of Montana Bible College through the preaching of the Word. In any case, Montana Bible College faculty are happy to assist your church with pulpit supply. We can also work with you to bring mature and qualified MBC students to fill your pulpit. For more information, or to request this ministry in your church, please e-mail Ryan Ward or call the MBC office at 406-586-3585.
Speaking at Retreats, Camps, Seminars and Events
MBC faculty are also available, schedules permitting, to speak for your retreats, camps, seminars and events. It is a joy for us to serve the regional church in this way. Our faculty are experienced speakers in these situations. It is a privilege to look into the Scriptures with you. To discuss possibilities of this nature, please e-mail Ryan Ward or call the MBC office at 406-586-3585.
Though not our primary ministry, MBC is able to offer help to churches in need of consultation when schedules permit. Various faculty members are able to assist in coaching you through conflict or difficult counseling situations. We are able to provide help to churches beginning the pastoral search process. We can point you to good resources for various areas of ministry and help you think through how to carry out the ministry God has given you in your particular situation and circumstances. For consultation help, please contact Jim Carlson by e-mail or telephone at 406-586-3585.
