    Anybody have any thoughts on America's largest predominantly minority Bible College?

    The new president Jay Quine just arrived in Houston from DTS. I realize that brings its own debate. I have some connections to the school and I'm curious to hear from the board's "scholars".

    I didn't find any classes in Greek in the catalog. If that's the case, I'd see that as a flaw.

    While technically they are a non-denominational Bible college, in reality they are Baptist at their core. They have a campus inside Ed Young Sr.'s church and a strong representation of Baptists in faculty and student body. It is located in Texas, for crying out loud.

    I've lived in Houston for many years, and known a few of the folks that have taught there, and a few that have taken classes. For what they're trying to do, they do a pretty good job.

    Their original goal was to provide bible college education to inner-city pastors and teachers who wouldn't otherwise have an opportunity to get an education. From there, they've grown over the years, and now offer a decent amount of classes. They also give building space to DTS faculty who offer seminary-level classes at their campus. From what I've seen from them, I can recommend them.
