To ensure the needs of Rhema Bible Training College's diverse student body are met, Dean Tad Gregurich and Rhema leadership, made simple revisions to the RBTC curriculum. The changes were based on feedback they received from Rhema grads.
Students receive an even stronger foundation in the Word and in the truths Rhema has always held dear. The two-year Ministerial training program also positions students who want to further their studies by taking a third or fourth year of specialized training.
Building a House of Faith
Dean Tad compared RBTC's curriculum to building a house. The stronger the foundation, the better a house can weather a storm. "As a homebuilder or an owner," says Dean Tad, "if you ever see the foundation of the house after it's been built, something has gone wrong." This is why it's so important to take the time to build the foundation correctly.
Students get the solid spiritual foundation they need to be successful in life, ministry, and on the job.
Two Year Ministerial Training Program
These foundational courses include the essentials of Bible knowledge and right living that every believer needs to know. The courses include both spiritual and practical applications.
Using the analogy of building a home, the first year of training can be compared to a footer. It's the first part of the home that is built, and it needs to be done right because everything rests on it.
Friday morning, September 19th Students completed Orientation Sessions and Student Revival meetings on Rhema Bible Training College Campus. Head of the Bible School, Kenneth W. Hagin, spoke from the heart to inspire the student body just as his father had inspired him when he began his ministry training.
Declaring that these students are the catalyst for the revival that is to come, he said, "Make every experience a learning experience. Even if you learn what not to do." To succeed the students should determine why they are here at school and set goals for themselves and run with that.
"Rhema is more than a classroom. Rhema is an experience. Faith is caught as much as taught and you get it by being here." Kenneth said.
Students will learn faith when things try to turn them aside from their path. As an RBTC student they will learn about their faith and having faith in God in both the natural and the supernatural realms.
