What happens at Ambassador Bible College?

The ABC routine is a challenging week centered around a seven-hour-a-day educational curriculum. It also includes plenty of opportunities for social interaction, leadership and service. Students can participate on service committees, in chorale and in speech club. Some of the service projects have included charity events to raise money for children’s educational funds in Africa and student scholarship funds in South America, the annual Cincinnati Heart Walk, a cancer bike-a-thon, and nursing home visits. Since the ABC program is located at the home office of the United Church of God, AIA, students also experience the work of the church here, and interact daily with the office administration and staff.

Requirements for attending Ambassador Bible College

The average age of ABC students is 22 years, but the program welcomes students from 18 to 80 years in age who are mature enough for this intensive program of biblical study. A high school diploma or equivalent is required. The program matches an annual academic year, beginning in late August and ending in May. The cost of tuition has increased to $2,500 which now includes breakfast and lunch each ABC day for the nine-month period at the Ambassador Bible College. Students must also be able to pay for their living expenses for nine months. Students typically share apartments and living expenses, and many students also work throughout the school year. At the successful completion of the course, students receive a Diploma in Biblical Studies.
