    Could someone recommend an online bible college that takes a person from an associates to a bachelors in bible studies for the purpose of working with pastors for bible study and youth. Accreditation is not so important to me as a good learning experience. I would like to do this when I retire from govt at 55. Thanks for your input.

    I too think Liberty is an excellent choice. You might want to take a look at South African Theological Seminary, as well. They have distance learning accredited degrees and certificate programs you might find interesting. SATS is also very affordable.

    saturneptune,

    The http://www.sats.edu.za/ is no doubt a good program. But what happens with many young people, especially from the IFB camp, is that they get "Bible College" degrees that end up worthless later on for one reason or another.

    I am not saying that that is the case with http://www.sats.edu.za/ but; their BA might not be accepted by an American university or seminary if you wanted to do an advanced degree later. Some time there are trade-offs in life. This may be one of those.

    I would probably ask if their degree had been taken by any American accredited colleges.

    FWIW!

    sdg!

    Sothern Evangelical Bible College has an excellent program designed specifically for what you are asking about. Check it out at:
    www.ses.edu

    It's based in Charlotte, and is connected with a seminary, but the bible college is designed to do exactly what you described...a distance program designed to take an associates to a bachelors. I know some of the faculty, and they're excellent.

    I have a question

    Is it true that if you are part of Liberty's "Liberty's Baptist Fellowship" that you get your tution free?

    1. I have heard that you have to be a full time pastor

    2. It only cost $25 a month

    Can a person also get their master's through there or only a bachelor's

    Mike, you know which one I'm going to recommend--only 18 miles away from you--Mid-Continent University at Mayfield. You can get just about every Baptist College of the Bible course offering on line from at MCU. Cost is pretty reasonable, too.

    Luther Rice seems to be a pretty decent program. I have yet to meet anyone that attended (online or in class) but the information seems solid. It is one of the schools I am considering.
