In His Teaching the Islands Will Put Their Hope

“Here is my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen one in whom I delight; I will put my Spirit on him, and he will bring justice to the nations.  He will not shout or cry out, or raise his voice in the streets. A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out. […]


Devotion as an Ever-Present Existence

“Devotion” is an interesting term in our Christian circles. It’s interesting because “devotional” could have several meanings. I have heard Christians use “devotion” or “devotional” to refer to their morning routine wherein they might read Scripture, pray, or even read a book on Christian living or theology. “Devotional” could also refer to a specific book […]


A Promise of Mercies

How many of us have turned to Lamentations 3:22-23 during times of distress or trouble?  These are precious words of promise that give all of us hope—no matter what we are facing. The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your […]

This week we welcomed new students from near and far to begin their education in serious joy.

The beginning of the school year brims with […]

By God’s grace, I have completed my second year of seminary, so I would like to personally thank you for partnering with Bethlehem College & Seminary to invest in my training. Without your support and generosity, this would not be possible; thank you for your sacrificial giving for the sake of Christ’s name. Let me […]


Launching the Yaoundé Site

Greetings! A long-term dream is coming true! One of the joys of being a church-based college and seminary is that we are part of the mission of the local church. Bethlehem Baptist Church is committed to church-planting, reaching unreached and untargeted people groups, and theological training in places that are hungry for God’s Word. We […]


Eternal Perspective

Life here on earth can be very complicated and challenging much of the time.  Not only do we have to deal with many spheres of responsibilities within our own lives, we also are daily confronted with the broader problems of the culture around us. Such complexity can feel overwhelming if it is not constantly kept in […]
