COURSE WORK

The Golden Valley Bible College degrees cater to an Apostolic education. With emphasis on Bible knowledge and the Great Commission, we pursue most all our efforts in that direction. Continuing spiritual growth and ongoing ministerial skill development are critical both for “set-aside deacons,” ladies, and young people involved in the mission of the church. The Northern Golden Valley District Apostolic Bible College currently offers two-degree programs to meet a range of needs: preparation for ministry or further education; personal or spiritual enrichment; and everything in between.
