Last year alone we received approximately 150 requests for Bible teachers to teach in Christian, international, or public schools. In addition, there are scores of other Bible teaching opportunities around the world in schools, missions, and churches. (See Bible teaching opportunities at www.ifmamissions.org and www.acsi.org)
A graduate of the Bible Teaching program receives the "all-level" Bible certification from the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), the largest Christian School organization in the world. This qualifies the graduate to teach Bible in Christian Schools in North America and International Schools around the world. Graduates employed to teach Bible in North Carolina will qualify for a North Carolina Secondary Teaching Certificate in Bible.
Yes! The learning context is a school classroom setting during student teaching. Yet, graduates use this Bible teaching skill as pastors, youth ministers, missionaries, or Christian Education directors. The classroom training experience allows the student to receive the greatest concentration of teaching opportunities within a short amount of time.
The Bible Teaching program trains students to study and to teach the Bible according to the chronological overview of the Bible. Elementary Education trains students to teach math, science, reading, and other subjects to elementary students. The Bible Teaching program is designed to train students to work with all levels of students: grades 1-12.
