Alaska Bible College


Recommended Posts

The purpose of Alaska Bible College is to exalt the Lord Jesus Christ and extend His Church by biblically training believers to be servant-leaders with Christ-like character.
At Alaska Bible College, we believe that Christ-like character counts. Our curriculum and student life encourage every student to grow in love for the Lord, His Word, and His church. Nestled in the center of beautiful Palmer, Alaska, and surrounded by mountain landscapes second to none in the world, you will daily be encouraged to worship the God who loves you and longs for you to live intimately with Him.
We are the only accredited four-year Bible college in Alaska! So, if you choose to join our adventure in Alaska, you will receive a high-quality biblical, theological and ministry-based education that will prepare you to serve the Lord with integrity for the rest of your life. You will also join a long list of servant-leaders who, after being trained with Christ-like character at ABC are leading with integrity in full-time ministry on the mission field, in the local church, or in the vocation that God has provided.
Alaska Bible College is committed to providing students, their families, and the campus community full disclosure of all consumer information required by state and federal regulations. The laws are intended to satisfy students’ right to know and allow students to make fully informed choices regarding the institution they elect to attend.
Alaska Bible College extends a warm welcome to prospective students who meet admission qualifications and seek to strengthen their Christian walk and prepare for ministry.ABC selects students based on academic ability, moral character, and a strong desire to study God’s Word. ABC does not discriminate based on age, race, gender, or ethnic background.
The ABC library has approximately 30,000 volumes, including the most significant theological collection in Alaska. The library also contains curriculum materials, media resources, computers for student use, a children’s library, and several reading and study areas. The library subscribes to many Christian magazines and periodicals. A selection of visual aid material is available for student ministries. ABC’s Wilderness Campus, located in Glennallen, houses an extension library on the second floor of Joy Hall.
A “modular” class condenses an entire college semester into a single, intensive week of on-campus study. Classes meet each day of the week for the full day (morning and afternoon). Before arriving on campus, students read the class textbook and submit a written summary and interaction. After the week on campus, students return home and complete a final project. Students receive a grade for the class upon completion of the final project.
College credit counts towards a degree at Alaska Bible College and can be transferred to other schools. The audit does not count towards a degree and can not be transferred, though students participate fully in all class activities. Audit students are not required to turn in the assignments and do not receive a grade. Enrollment precedence is given to students taking the class for college credit.
Housing and meals are optional, and students are free to make their arrangements if desired. Grocery stores and affordable dining are available within walking distance. Housing is in the form of a shared room in ABC’s dorm, four blocks from the classroom building. Lunches are available for through ABC as part of the housing package, or for separate purchase. A full kitchen is provided in the dorm for breakfast and dinner preparations.
Our fellowship with God is not measured by how much we know, but by how much we love! So at Alaska Bible College, our investment in students goes well beyond academics. In the context of a caring community, our students can expect to find a vibrant blend of social outlets & service opportunities designed to foster healthy, life-long relationships.
Whether in the classroom or the wilderness, ABC is not just an education but also a place to belong. During the academic year, various social activities are scheduled. These may include banquets, outdoor recreation, free game times, service projects, dorm outings, community programs, and annual all-school retreats. Our inclusive culture is sure to make you feel welcome in the far north.
We firmly believe that your experience outside the classroom contributes to your overall enrichment. Students are encouraged to explore the surrounding area and embrace all Alaska has to offer.
Strategically located in the heart of Palmer, our campus and dorms enable you to access incredible year-round opportunities readily. Within walking distance are community bike paths, coffee shops, and grocery stores.
Alaska is ideal for outdoor enthusiasts, and the Palmer area hosts world-class recreational adventures. Fall activities may include fishing, hunting, hiking, and canoeing. In the winter months, try snowboarding, skating, or snowshoeing. Community events include the Iditarod, the Alaska State Fair, concerts, craft fairs, high school sports, and much more.
Alaska Bible College enriches and deepens the spiritual life of its students with chapel services, dorm devotions, prayer partners, and by encouraging personal Bible reading and prayer. Students are also expected to attend services at a local church regularly. There are several evangelical churches in the area that provide opportunities for worship and service. The first weeks of spiritual life focus are scheduled each semester, featuring a guest speaker at daily chapel services and a school-wide day of prayer.
