    I am planning on attending one... I will be doing the distance learning program, and using my GI Bill to pay for it... I want to be able to get a masters of divinity or possibly a DofM in the future, but I think I have to start off with a undergrad degree??? what good colleges are there? I live in Indiana btw, so something near would be nice... I have checked out Luther Rice and it looks good.... I know about Hyles anderson college but they dont offer distance learning..

    thanks

    Koontzy,

    Let me begin by saying that I am saying this for just a joke or tongue-n-cheek.

    The IBFs are going to look hard down on you if you go to Liberty. So, do you want to go the "Jack Hyles School of Pastoral Leadership" type "church school":laugh: on the other end of the spectrum?

    I just thought it was funny when I thought of it, although it may not be to you?!!!

    sdg!

    Go to Liberty!

    Fundamentalist Baptist Colleges?

    As Rhet has wisely pointed out, it depends on where you are in the spectrum. Because of the way you used the word fundamentalist, I would recommend one of the following:
    On the other hand, I would suggest that you look at the following as well because you listed your denomination as SBC:
    Of course, if you are looking at DE only, then your choices are more limited. Just remember there are some really good DE school and some less than wonderful DE schools. I do not recommend LBU, Andersonville, Bethany, Covington, etc. although they are not exactly degree mills. Then, there are the real degree mills.

    Let me know what you think.

    If you would consider SBC schools, there is always Boyce College at Southern Seminary in Louisville.

    His original post stated that he is interested in distance learning.

    His denomination is SBC.

    The only logical choice is Liberty University.

    Even fundamental churches of the NBBC, MBBC, PBBC type are starting to lighten up a little. My mom's home church just called a pastor with a degree from SBTS. This is the home church of the founder of NBBC.

    Koontzy,

    Have you considered getting a degree from a local secular institution? You can do the M.Div. no matter what your undergrad degree was.

    just because the home church of Dr. patz called a pastor from SBTS, that doesn't mean that fundamental churches are beginning to loosen up a little. and besides Dr. patz has been dead for a while, so it should not be significant that his home chuch became a little bit looser. Both of my parents went to NBBC and they are serving the lord today. i plan on going to either BJU or UofM (university of Michigan)

    Anyway i would recommend NBBC, BJU, PBBC, FBBC, WBBC, ABC
    i would not recommend PCC, MBBC, LBU:thumbs:
    oh yeah, i am writing this from my IFB point of view

    If you want a truly fundamental college then don't go to Liberty. They're as far from the right type of Fundamental as cheese is from ice cream.

    From a fellow IFB, why would you not recommend MBBC? My son graduated from there, and he and I graduated from there last year (on furlough) with our MA, and found it to be a wonderful school.

    Same question. Why would you not recommend MBBC?

    I've also spoken to a lot of "fundamental" pastors who are no longer opposing every one who is "outside" their camp. Mohler has done a lot to bridge the gap between SBs and independent fundamental Baptists.

    So I think it is very significant that FBC called a pastor with SBTS training!
