Home / Admissions /Seminary / Life at FBTS Being the third fastest-growing city in the country, it’s no wonder Ankeny is a great place to live and study. Housing is affordable and job opportunities are plentiful. Ankeny, home to more than 50,000 people, is a fast growing suburb of Des Moines. All your shopping and dining needs as well as state parks, bike trails, and a family YMCA are within a short drive. Being a student at FBTS also means you share a campus with Faith Baptist Bible College. This gives you the benefits of guest speakers, events, entertainment, and resources available on campus.
