Every person preparing to attend college struggles to decide how far away from home they are willing to attend school, but Christians preparing for ministry often struggle with this decision more than other students. Christians leave their churches, as well as their families, to attend a Bible college or seminary. Many future pastors, missionaries and counselors sacrifice their relationships, at least for a few years, so they can grow at a Bible college or seminary.
This sacrifice, as well as the cost of traveling to school, can be greatly reduced by selecting a Christian university nearby. Every area of the country has a top seminary or Bible college within driving distance. Follow through to one of the regions below for a list of Bible colleges and seminaries in those states.
