In pursuance of its mission, while responding appropriately to dynamics of modern society, the College has started reengineering processes to reposition itself to become more relevant to the church and attractive to the society within which it operates. Thus, GBC is expanding its operations and curriculum in line with current interest and direction of educational pursuit to meet the spiritual and human resource needs of the church. However, it is important to maintain that these efforts are in no way going to compromise the sanctity of the New Testament teachings, beliefs and practices of the Lord’s church.
In a concerted effort to move the Ghana Bible College forward to serve the church and society better, series of strategies have been planned to guide management over the short term, the medium term and the long term. The plan for the short term covers a period of five years from 2014 to 2018; the medium term from 2019 to 2023 and the long term from 2024 to 2028.
The main focus of the short term plan is to attain a healthy partnership with Knutsford University College (East Legon, Accra) to obtain institutional accreditation for the GBC campus to run accredited university programmes in other fields of study in addition to the Theology courses.
This arrangement will provide immediate admission for many young people with the requisite university entry requirements to pursue higher education in a Christian environment. The strategy also seeks to attract and develop more reliable men for work of ministry in the church now and for the future. It will create a pool of prospective young ministers who will like to add Theological training as second career to their various fields of study to serve in the ministry of the Lord’s church upon their graduation.
Within the short term period, GBC seeks to foster stronger relationship with the church to improve evangelism, church planting and leadership training at local levels. The approach is to seek to work with the college’s alumni and the leadership of the local churches. The College continues to organise periodic seminars and leadership training workshops for local church leaders and the college alumni to sharpen their knowledge and improve their performances and relevance to their congregations.
