Christ has entrusted the church with the task of training gospel laborers (2 Timothy 2:2). Accordingly, RBS encourages local churches to invest financially in those who aspire to and show potential for the ministry. A church can do this by covering part or all of a student's seminary fees.
How can RBS offer a ministerial education at such a reduced cost? Part of the reason is that we are an online school. We do not need to charge the student to maintain the overhead expenses of building facilities and a resident faculty.
Another reasons is that RBS is partially supported by the generosity of individuals and churches who see training gospel ministers as a vital component of the Great Commission. If you are interested in knowing more about our financial needs, please contact the seminary dean (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you'd like to make a donation today, you can click on the button below. RBS is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization.
Individuals, churches and organizations may donate to the General Fund, or churches may consider the Church Partnership Program (below).
What is the Church Partnership Program?
Students who are members of churches that support the seminary for $2,000 or more per year will receive free tuition for courses at RBS. The student is still responsible for their semester enrollment fee, but his tuition is covered and his overall cost is much less. This program especially benefits churches with more than one student enrolled in the seminary.
How Can my church become a partner?
- Include RBS in your church's regular prayer ministry
- Give a minimum of $2,000 per year to RBS
