How do I know which Bible College to go to? There are so many options and I feel confused. Here are some tips, which can help in finding the college that suits your needs.
b) If you want a year out between A levels and university there are some missions designed specifically to meet this need.
c) If you desire discipleship training without much academics, there are colleges designed to meet your need.
d) If you want to get more involved as a missionary on a long-term basis, the best thing for you to do is to go to Bible college that offers you this training.
e) If you want to be a pastor in your own denomination the best thing for you to do is to find a college that your denomination approves of and which would not be a problem for your denomination when you finish your course. Make sure you find a good spiritual college and not just one that will suit the demands of your denomination but would not give you any spiritual growth.
4) If you are feeling God's call upon your life make sure you talk to your pastor and elders about it. Keep them informed of your decisions and if they do not agree with you do not be upset with them. Probably you play an important part in your own fellowship and your departure will be felt very strongly.
5) Select three different colleges and visit them. If it is possible, stay for two or three days and see if it really meets your expectations.
Once you have had a clear guidance from the Lord you must obey Him, but never forget to write to your home church because they will be behind you in prayer.
