Nigerian Christian Bible College

The first college of the Bible in Nigeria was started in 1954 on twenty beautiful acres in the village of Ukpom. NCBC is hailed as the flagship of Christian education in that nation. The school is actually five years older than its overseeing organization, African Christian Schools.
Programs

Since 1954 programs offered on the campus have varied. The “tried and true” training of ministers is a constant throughout the years. Thousands of ministers have been trained at NCBC, but with Nigerian’s poor economy, many have had difficulty supporting their families through church support alone. In an effort to provide a way for ministers to make a living without depending on local church support, university level studies were adopted.

NCBC sought and obtained an affiliation with the University of Calabar in order to offer Bachelors Degrees in Biblical Studies and in Education. From 1991 to 2005, enrollment in the various programs grew from 79 to 271.

Entry Requirements

Entry into the Preacher Training program is dependent on the candidate being able to converse well in English and having the recommendation of his local church. Entry into university level programs requires the successful completion of a required number of GCE papers (common college entrance exam) and an acceptable grade made on his entrance examination. Candidates for any program should contact NCBC in person or through its mailing address at P.O. Box 40, Abak, Akwa Ibom State, for interview and testing dates and for additional details.

Leadership and Teaching Staff

NCBC is run by our Executive Mangement Team consisting of the Director of the Ministerial Program, Mr. John S. Ekpo, the Acting Director of the NCE Program, Mr. Obinna, and the Registrar, Mr. Ntion. The school has a teaching and operation staff of approximately 10.

NCBC is always interested in enlarging its pool of applicants for teaching positions. Candidates with degrees in Bible, Ministry/Missions, Education, English and Social Studies are encouraged to apply.
