Academics

  • Bible

    Learn Greek, practice preaching and teaching, explore the history and cultural background of the Bible, and most importantly, learn more about God and to become like Him

    Learning the Bible will help you have an understanding of the gospel and prepare you to teach others. The classes in biblical languages, exegesis, theology, homiletic and practical ministry will give you the tools you need to understand, follow and share the Word of God.

    But do not worry about your biblical education being dry and academic. PRBC faculty is very involved in the local church and many have been or still are pastors. They seek to educate the heart first, then the head.
