They're Glad They Came to Faith

As we begin our second semester, we caught up with some of our freshmen students to hear about their first semester at Faith.


How are you involved on campus? I have enjoyed participating on the men’s soccer and basketball teams. I also had the opportunity to be a part of the South Africa Team this last summer.

Why do you love Faith? I love having tons of people to keep me accountable with my walk with God and professors who sacrifice to be here AND make time personally for you outside of their class.





How are you involved on campus? I enjoyed being part of the soccer team last fall. I also greatly enjoy photography. Since I played soccer, I was able to take pictures of the men's away soccer games, which was a lot of fun! I also sing in Chorale, which is a blast! Recently, I was selected to be part of this year’s Contenders, a camp team that works and serves at Iowa Regular Baptist Camp this summer.

Why do you love Faith? I love how the professors care about the students. They really want us to learn and will help us do so. I love the Bible classes. Getting to learn more about God and getting to call it school is a blessing. I also love the students and faculty here. I know that I can talk to my RA or the dean of women about anything! It's so great to be able to spend time with other Christians my age. I am constantly being encouraged and pointed to Christ by my peers and it is wonderful!



How are you involved on campus? Last fall I played on the volleyball team, wihch I greatly enjoyed.  I am also a student caller for the Admissions Office. This gives me the opportunity to call prospective students and encourage them to consider Bible college. I tried out and was selected to be a part of Team Impact, a summer camp ministry team for Faith that goes to camps all over the country.

Why do you love Faith? I love it here because it has helped me grow in my knowledge of the Bible and has deepened my walk with God. It has taught me to to depend on God completely. Also, I have made a lot of great friends here at Faith



How are you involved on campus? I am this year’s freshmen class president, and I am part of Faith’s Team Impact. I’ll have the opportunity to counsel and do skits with the team, serving at different camps all summer long.

Why do you love Faith? First, the Biblical teaching I get here is phenomenal! The majority of the professors have earned doctorates and years of experience in the classes that they teach. Second, it is hard to find a good Bible college these days that has a healthy balance between rules and the spiritual condition of the school. We have rules here, but if you combine these rules with a staff and faculty that have a genuine passion to see the next generation grow in the knowledge of God and reach a lost and dying world, you get Faith Baptist Bible College. Faith has been successfully training ministry leaders for the glory of Christ for many years, and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else but here..
