Every resident student receives a Serious Joy Scholarship.

God works in the hearts of individual men and women to provide two-thirds of Bethlehem College & Seminary students’ full tuition cost such that they can:

  1. Receive a high-value education at an unusually affordable cost;
  2. Launch immediately into ministry without student loan debt;
  3. Be affordable as staff to churches and ministries that need them.

How The Serious Joy Scholarship Works

Full Annual Tuition$16,000
Serious Joy Scholarship–$10,000
Net Student Tuition$6,000

Bethlehem College & Seminary receives no funds at all from the U.S. Department of Education, Federal Pell Grants, Student Loan Programs, IRS Code 26 §529 College Savings Plans, State of Minnesota, denominational support, or Desiring God Ministries. Bethlehem Baptist Church provides very generous services in-kind, but only a nominal amount of direct cash support.

Bethlehem College & Seminary is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit institution. Contributions are tax-deductible. Those interested in making larger transformational or legacy gifts of cash or securities may contact: Rick Segal, Vice President of Advancement, Bethlehem College & Seminary, 720 13th Ave. S, Minneapolis, MN 55415, 612.455.3420 ext. 1122, [email protected].
