The ministry is both a profession and a calling. It is essential that both areas are developed and enhanced. Nazarene Bible College is committed to academic and practical programs designed to educate students for service and leadership. The faculty works hard to make the online classroom a learning and stretching experience. The administration spends much of its time in advisement, public awareness of the value of our students. However, Nazarene Bible College does not guarantee job placement.
The College offers the following Career Services through various offices to facilitate students’/graduates’ job searches:
- Recommendations – Administrators and Faculty members are pleased to provide recommendations for individual students upon request.
- Academic records will be sent by the Registrar’s Office for students/graduates with a zero account balance upon written request from the student/graduate.
- An official academic transcript may be requested online by the student/graduate through TranscriptsPlus.
- NBC students can access a digital, unofficial version of their academic transcript through their student portal.
- Christian Service Opportunities

- To submit an open ministry position, please contact the Executive Assistant to the President’s Office.
Interventions for Student Success
Each degree-seeking student regardless of major or denominational affiliation will take a Student Development Inventory (SDI) three times during their degree program at NBC. The SDI will be taken during the following courses: NBC Experience (beginning), Ministry Progress Review (mid-point) and Graduate Exit Interview (conclusion). All NBC students are required to participate in this process regardless of denominational affiliation.
