Bethlehem College

Evening Classes

Grow as a disciple of Christ while studying our Sovereign God and Sacred Book in an in-person degree program that accommodates the demands of work and family.

We desire to graduate students who are rooted in Christ and ready for the world. We believe that education is discipleship, and there are some things that you can only learn face-to-face, life-on-life. Our programs are designed to give students key habits of heart and mind that will serve them in every area of life.

We are excited to offer new class opportunities in our evening programs for members and ministry leaders of local churches. It’s an opportunity to Taste and See what we mean by Education in Serious Joy. Those who take classes work through assigned reading and engage in the regular classroom experience of graduate and undergraduate evening students.
