Fall Preview Day 2021

In conjunction with The Inauguration of Dr. Joseph James Rigney and Look at the Sacred Book

Join us for our Fall Preview Day at Bethlehem College & Seminary on Friday, September 24. Our aim is to help you taste and see what it looks like to be a student at our school, so that you might discern God’s plan for your future educational journey. On Friday morning you will hear from school leadership, sit through an overview of our academic programs, visit real live classes, join us for chapel, and mingle with current faculty, staff, and students over lunch. Then, on Friday evening, we invite you to be our guest at the inauguration of Dr. Joseph Rigney, the second president of Bethlehem College & Seminary. Finally, stay the night in order to join us for a mini-conference (“Look at the Sacred Book”) that will feature members of our faculty and our Chancellor, Dr. John Piper. Register below to visit us on this special weekend (all Preview Day attendees receive complimentary tickets to “Look at the Sacred Book”).
