Announcing Our New Accelerated Degree Program in Partnership with Several Respected Seminaries

From Reformation Bible College | March 7, 2018

In partnership with several respected seminaries, Reformation Bible College’s new Accelerated Degree Program is launching Fall 2018, allowing students to complete a bachelor’s and master’s degree in less time.

Instead of the traditional seven years to earn both degrees—four at college, three at seminary—the Accelerated Degree Program is designed to launch students into ministry in six years, saving the time and expense of one year without compromising the education and training needed for the high calling of pastoral ministry.

Contact our Admissions team at or 888-RBC-1517 to find out how we can help equip you for your life’s calling one year sooner.

Our current seminary partnerships are with The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (Louisville, Ky.), Westminster Theological Seminary (Philadelphia, Pa.), Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary (Greenville, S.C.), Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary (Grand Rapids, Mich.), and Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary (Pittsburgh, Pa.).

Dr. Peter A. Lillback, president of Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, comments, “Reformation Bible College reflects the passion for Reformed scholarship so characteristic of its founder, Dr. R.C. Sproul. Westminster is pleased to collaborate with RBC in offering its six-year Master of Divinity program culminating in a WTS M.Div.”

President of Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary, Dr. Joseph A. Pipa, Jr., adds that this partnership now enables GPTS “to partner together to advance Christ’s Kingdom by equipping Christians – and for us, Christian preachers – with the tools they need to bring biblical truth to every corner of the globe.”

Discussing the importance of theological education, President of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and Ligonier Teaching Fellow, Dr. Albert Mohler wrote on his blog, “The authentic Christian ministry constitutes a counterrevolutionary insurgency on behalf of the Gospel, an insurrection against principalities and powers, a redemptive rescue mission in the midst of late modernity. What could be more important than the education and preparation of these insurgents and counterrevolutionaries? What could be more important than theological education?”

As Dr. Joel R. Beeke, president of Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, observes, “We trust that, by God’s grace, this newly established 6-year M.Div. program, which stresses both solid Reformed academic training and vital piety, will serve the church and the academy in unprecedented ways, strengthening the Reformed community worldwide.” To read a full release from PRTS, click here.

Dr. Jerry O’Neill, president and professor of pastoral theology at Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary, said “We are excited to partner with Reformation Bible College on their Accelerated Degree program. It is a great way for students to cut down on time and higher education expenses and still have what they need for effective service in Christ’s Kingdom.”
