I absolutely love my ministry at Eternity Bible College. I have the privilege of teaching students from all over the world. This has proven to be an immense blessing to me. I recently filmed a video talking about our “global classroom” and the benefit it offers our students. Here is a snippet from the transcript:
Our mission at Eternity has always been to offer a thoroughly biblical and deeply rigorous educational experience to students all over the world. As a result, it is not unusual for our classes to have students from a variety of cultural backgrounds and nationalities. From South Africa, the U.A.E, Singapore, the U.K., the U.S., Brazil, Canada, Italy–students from a variety of places are studying at Eternity.
From the vantage point of a professor, I can’t tell you just how beneficial such diversity is for our student body. Our students get to study and interact with people from cultures much different than their own. As a result, their educational experience is deepened and their horizons broadened as they interact with their classmates on the other side of the world. In more ways than one, our commitment to equipping the global church in this way actually models what the Kingdom of God is all about–namely, God’s heart for the nations. It has always been God’s plan for his church to be filled with people from every nation, tribe, and tongue. Students at Eternity get a taste of what this is like every day.
We believe such cultural and national diversity preserves the integrity of the educational experience itself. It affords us a rich learning environment where deep and meaningful conversations can thrive.
