Prospective students welcome the opportunity of taking all of their courses online at The Baptist College of Florida.

The Baptist College of Florida (BCF) in Graceville has been approved to provide college courses through electronic delivery since 1999. But according to BCF President Thomas A. Kinchen, the college received a tremendous boost in its efforts from a recent letter received from its primary accreditation agency.

In the letter dated January 22, 2013, the President of the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools noted that The Baptist College of Florida has approval to move forward with offering all of its courses and degree programs online. "This is a watershed moment for us," acknowledged Kinchen. "We can now offer online delivery for courses in all of our degree programs as well as entire degree programs online. We have been working toward this for over fourteen years, and I am absolutely delighted with this approval."

The newly approved program means that a greater number of students will be able to pursue top-quality, fully accredited education without relocating from their homes and places of service. "We want all of our programs to be 'ministry friendly' so that students can serve while learning and learn while serving," stated Kinchen. Accordingly, the recently approved Master of Arts in Christian Studies and Master of Arts in Music and Worship Leadership each have major components that are completed online. Once approval is received from the Florida Department of Education, the college is prepared to begin the new online programming immediately.

If completing a degree or taking classes online from the comfort of home or current ministry location is appealing to you, please contact BCF at 850-263-3261 ext. 460 or access the website at baptistcollege.edu and request more information on this tremendous educational opportunity.
