From the President

Thank you for taking the time to look at our web site. Kentucky Mountain Bible College is a four-year accredited Bible College, devoted to preparing youth to be dedicated Christians who will impact their world for Christ.

At KMBC you will find a strong spiritual focus in every part of campus life. A dynamic spiritual atmosphere is evident in the chapel, classroom, work shop, ball field and dorm.

Another focus you will find at KMBC is dedication to academic excellence. “Seek that you may excel” has been a motto that characterizes the attitude toward academics.

Someone has said that KMBC is “Big enough to meet your needs, but small enough to care.” Here at KMBC you will find a family atmosphere. “We care” is not just a catchy slogan, but an attitude that prevails. On this campus you will find faculty and staff who will listen to your hurts, pray for your needs, and be genuine friends.

In the last 20 years the average cost of a college education has skyrocketed, forcing many students to take out large student loans. KMBC does its best to keep its prices down so that students will not be burdened with debt. Our goal is to help students graduate debt-free or as close to debt-free as possible. Here we offer a quality education at a price you can afford!

Dr. Philip Speas, President

Why I Believe in KMBC: A Strong Heritage

Why I Believe in KMBC: A Strong Heritage KMBC has a phenomenal history and heritage. The school was founded on a shoestring budget with very humble beginnings. The founders were spiritual giants!

Why I Believe in KMBC: Built to Last

Why I Believe in KMBC: Heroes

Why I Believe in KMBC I believe in KMBC because it has and promotes the right kind of heroes! At most colleges and universities, including many Christian schools, hero status is conferred on the basis of secular standards. Students are admired if they have athletic talent, beauty, brains, money, a suave personality, or cool possessions. These campus heroes often carry about them an air of superiority and organize themselves into somewhat…
