I believe in KMBC because our students have a lot of opportunity to be involved in ministry and receive hands on training. Here is a list of ministries our students are doing: prison ministry, youth detention ministry, pro-life ministry, church planting, nursing home, singing group, youth retreat team, summer camp counseling, impact team, teaching Sunday school, preaching, discipling, children’s church, kid’s club, youth group, and leading worship.
Some time ago a pastor shared with me that while he received his training for ministry at a larger Christian university, his opportunity to do hands on ministry was little to none compared to the many opportunities KMBC students have. He noted that our students seemed to be more at ease and possessed more ministry skills.
Not long ago a denominational leader told me that he found that the ministerial students graduating from his college were not ready for ministry. He then added that he’d like to hire graduates from KMBC because they seemed ready and more mature.
I am proud of KMBC because we do a good job of providing many opportunities for leadership and ministry to our students. KMBC provides many more opportunities than most schools and much more than we provided in the past. I am pleased that this on-the-job training helps them hit-the-ground-running when they graduate.
