Nazarene Bible College

Nazarene Bible College is an undergraduate, professional school of Christian ministry committed to academic and practical programs designed to educate students for service and leadership in a diverse world.

Founded and sponsored by the Church of the Nazarene, the college has a unique place among the institutions of higher learning in the denomination by serving as the primary undergraduate institution providing adult ministerial preparation. NBC offers these distinct advantages to those preparing for a life of ministry:


  1. An adult education program specifically designed to fit into your busy lifestyle

  2. A quality program that provides not just a degree, but a practical education to prepare you for ministry.

  3. Due to individualized attention by both faculty and advisors NBC students have a high probability of success in their classes

  4. The NBC experience provides more than an education—NBC classes build a sense of community that builds a lifetime network with others involved in all facets of ministry

  5. An NBC education is highly affordable. Tuition and fees at NBC are among the lowest to be found at any private, accredited institution in the USA.

  6. NBC provides a "ministry-rich" environment. Students who come to Colorado Springs for campus or hybrid campus/online studies are able to study in one of the most "ministry-rich" locations in the USA. More than 100 church-type organizations have national headquarters in Colorado Springs, which enables students to build their lifetime network across denominational lines. Organizations like Navigators, Focus on the Family, Compassion, Biblical, and ACSI provide some of these opportunities.

Financial Aid

Nazarene Bible College offers financial aid in the form of grants, scholarships, loans, and employment.
