The transformative learning process at Living Word Bible College and Ministries is designed to help our students grow both in and out of the classroom. Each day is filled with opportunities to read God's word and experience hands on learning. Our teachers create a safe and open setting, where they can guide students in exploring the world of the Bible, Biblical Archaeology, Theology, and Pastoral Ministry.
