Mission and Vision

BBC's Mission Statement

Boise Bible College logo with text mission statement underneathBBC’s current mission statement was adopted by the Board of Directors at their meeting in February of 2015 after a two-year process of study and dialogue by the administration, staff, and faculty. This mission statement incorporates significant wording changes from previous renditions, but is not intended to signal any significant departure from the historic mission of the college.

BBC's Vision Statement

At the same time the mission statement was adopted, the Board of Directors also adopted a revised vision statement. The new vision statement represents a clear departure from the one adopted in 2007. The 2007 statement approached the issue of vision from a marketing strategy to target our ideal prospective student, ideal supporting church, churches most likely to hire our graduates, etc. While the new vision statement paints a picture of what an educational experience at BBC would look and feel like under ideal circumstances.
