"Ministry College has been a great blessing to my life. I love that it allows me to dig deep into the bible and have fun at the same time!”

- Lydia Davie

"I'm of the opinion that all believers should do some form of further study to immerse themselves in God's Word. Bible College studies is a great start. I since have gone on to become a Chaplain, and am doing further study into Torah teaching ,with in depth Hebrew and Greece word meanings in the Word".

- Marlon McGrath

"Studying bible college through Bayside gave me practical understanding to Christianity and ministry in a real world setting. It challenged my foundational concepts of Christianity and helped my growth as a leader, ultimately equipping me to help others grow in their faith and life journey.

- Joseph Spannari
