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.

All 2020-21 Classes are Virtual via Zoom

Each class is four weeks in length. Each night, a “first” & “second” year class is presented as well as a “third” & “fourth” year class. A total of ten courses is taught each academic year. Students may be enrolled in two classes simultaneously: Please check with the Bible College Administration for more information.
