Besides the Associates in Arts (A.A.), Central Florida Bible College (CFBC) now provides undergraduate coursework (120 total hours) divided into 30-hour units of study. Upon completion of the four-year coursework, the student will earn a Bachelors in one of the two major course of studies (Pastoral Ministry or Christian Education), a Ministerial License and is a candidate for ordination through Anchor Of Our Souls Ministries.
Transfer Of Credits
All credits are transferable to Christian Colleges that recognize CFBC’s curriculum and program toward a Masters Degree. For further information, please contact the Academic Dean. If you want to transfer the credits elsewhere, it is your responsibility to contact the school to determine if they will recognize and accept the courses.
The student should inquire directly with the denomination with which he/she plans to seek ordination to determine if they will accept credits from CFBC. At the completion of the four-year coursework, students have the option of continuing on with the Ministerial Practicum Program at affiliated churches and to apply for ordination consideration by Anchor of Our Souls Ministries. The students will also be eligible for Licensing under Anchor Of Our Souls Ministries Inc. and Apostle Fred and Maylen Puentes.
An exciting thrust of CFBC is the emphasis on world evangelization. We believe the Great Commission still applies and is a command that is not optional. Opportunities for short-term missions involvement are offered, giving students choices between various kinds of ministry including, street witnessing, crusades, music, and drama, etc. Each student must participate in an outreach before graduation. A student may work with CFBC’s scheduled fund-raisers to help lower the cost of their participation in the outreach.
Ministerial Practicum Program
CFBC shares in the development of competent ministers by expecting of its Ministerial Interns a high degree of achievement. Servant-hood, academic excellence, and training for the equipping of future leadership is the heart of our Ministerial Practicum Program. You will be challenged to reach your full potential in Christ. You will receive personal care and mentorship.
According to Philippians 4:9, students will be mentored and discipled by the CFBC and Anchor Of Our Souls Ministries leadership. The students will receive opportunities in various areas of ministry at affiliate churches and through CFBC’s outreaches.
The Ministerial Practicum is one of the requirements for each program completed at CFBC. It is part of the curriculum, and account for three-credit hours out of the 30 hours required to complete each program. Students are required to serve in their local church or another ministerial program as agreed by the student and the Academic Dean for a minimum of 72 hours. For fourth-year students, at least 50% of their hours should be in service directly related to their major course of study (Pastoral Ministry or Christian Education).
