New Ministry Training Program presented by Bethany College. 

The "Bible Training School" is an entry program into Bethany College. BTS is our 1 year intensive program designed for anyone who desires to gain foundational ministry training while immersed in the dynamic local church experience. With our focus on missions and worship, BTS is devoted to laying a biblical foundation and imparting keys and principles for living out a call to God's work. Along with receiving training in academics and hands-on ministry, each student will participate in at least 1 mission trip as well as playing key roles in hosting a national youth conference in the summer.
