The MBC Community
Montana Bible College grows every year into a family of brothers and sisters. We pray together, study together, work together, and play together. Some of the best friendships you will ever make are formed when we live as a tight-knit community seeking to know and love Jesus and abide in His Word. Come and experience the joy of maturing in Christ with us as you discover the path God has for your future!
Montana Bible College aims to get you doing, not just knowing! We believe strongly in application. We believe God has called the local church to bring the light of the gospel to the world around it. We believe in an education that integrates with life. We believe that a vital part of your maturing and developing as an effective disciple of Christ is hands-on. Therefore, student involvement in ministry is a priority.
Of first importance is your active and faithful participation in a strong local church. Ministry involvement in such a church or Christian ministry is encouraged during the student’s first year, and required during following years. Students may engage in ministries geared for the strengthening of believers within the church such as Sunday schools, youth programs, counseling or Bible studies. They may also engage in ministries aimed at loving and reaching the lost such as prison ministries, pregnancy caring center ministries, international student outreach, hospice volunteering and summer camp counseling. And this is by no means an exhaustive list! We want our students serving according to their God-given gifting and passions.
MBC students may take part in a variety of events in the Bozeman area. Here is a sampling of what is available: The Bozeman Symphony, Montana Shakespeare in the Parks, The Sweet Pea Festival, The Bozeman Christmas Stroll, Montana State University sporting events, The Playmill Theater.
Organized sports such as basketball, softball, ultimate Frisbee, volleyball, flag football, and hockey are open for student participation through the community, the local church or the Bible college.
Outdoor enthusiasts love Bozeman. With two nationally popular slopes within only minutes of Bozeman, skiing/boarding is a favorite winter sport. Backpacking, biking, kayaking, fishing, hiking, hunting, rock-climbing, and camping will keep the active student busy year-round.
One of the more attractive elements of Montana Bible College is that it is located in Bozeman. The city of Bozeman is a wonderful jumping off point for visiting Montana. Surrounded by beautiful mountains and close to many of the treasures in the “Treasure State,” Bozeman offers the sights and hospitality for which Montana has become famous. Consider visiting Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks. Enjoy a day trip to Virginia City or over the Beartooth Highway.
Students wishing to obtain employment during the school year are encouraged to do so at a level that does not interfere with their learning. Bozeman has a large service sector, making for many entry-level jobs. Montana Bible College has intentionally scheduled classes Monday through Thursday to allow students the opportunity for more significant work and study time on Fridays.
Placement of students following graduation is considered a joint venture between the student and Montana Bible College. While we cannot guarantee placement in a chosen field, we are continually seeking opportunities for students.
“What I learned in Bible College has prepared me for the ‘practical’ side of ministry because the foundations of discipline, biblical knowledge, counseling, shepherding, and interacting with people were developed.”
