Hi friends, 

I want to update you on a couple of exciting developments with Calvary Chapel Bible College.

First, I’m happy to announce that CCBC has just obtained candidate status with our accrediting agency ABHE (Association of Biblical Higher Education). That brings us one step away from being a fully accredited school. Accreditation will enable students to obtain a fully accredited undergraduate degree from CCBC which will then give them opportunities to move on to graduate level studies should they desire to do so. 

For anyone that might be unaware, we still offer a certificate program for those simply wanting to further their Biblical understanding and grow in their spiritual lives.  

The other exciting news I wanted to share is that CCBC is reopening its European campus in the fall/autumn of this year. We’ll be having a semester at the Castle in beautiful Millstatt, Austria. This one semester program can be taken as a stand-alone certificate course, or, the classes can be taken for credit toward one’s degree. Dr. Lu Wing will be leading the semester with other instructors from around Europe teaching some of the courses. This semester’s teaching will center around Leviticus and Hebrews with additional subjects offered to make this a rich and fulfilling time of spiritual growth. There’ll also be visits to some of the significant Christian history sites in Europe, as well as opportunities for outreach. It looks to be an outstanding time.

For more information, you can visit the Schloss Heroldeck website, or if you are interested in attending please fill out this interest form

Dates: September 16 through December 13, 2024
