Experiential Learning:
Going Beyond the Classroom

This mission is expressed as we practice our core values: the Bible is the foundation for learning, discipleship is the process of learning, community is the context of learning, and mission the purpose of learning.

Each semester our students step out into various ministries in the local community to serve through our Service Learning program. This practical hands-on learning deepens student understanding of what they are learning in the classroom. 

Important Service Learning information and forms can be found here.

In February of every year, students are exposed to the needs of people in a variety of cross-cultural settings. Our students consistently point to the MissionX program as being some of the most significant learning times of their college experience. MissionX is an important part of helping equip students for church ministry. This practical, hands-on, service opportunity challenges students with global needs both far and near, while also helping them discover their own particular giftedness and ministry interests.

Practicum offers supervised ministry experience, reading, and written reflection totalling 150 hours of ministry and reflection in the student’s area of interest.

An internship provides intensive supervised ministry experience, reading, and written reflection in the student’s major field of study, totalling over 600 hours. Internships may be one semester full-time or as much as two years part-time.

Mission X

SBC’s annual Mission X is a vital experiential component of what we are about at SBC. As such it has become a special signature of our desire to help students consistently integrate what they are learning at a practical, ministry level.

Partnerships

SBC is accredited by The Association for Biblical Higher Education (ABHE). A number of the courses we offer may be transferable to Canadian universities, depending on the program you enter.

Credit transfers with Canadian Mennonite University in Winnipeg allow SBC students a faster track to complete university degrees. Up to 60 SBC credits can be transferred directly into a CMU BA program in areas such as Pre-Education as well as majors in Humanities, Math, Social Sciences, and Music.

SBC students may take 15 credit hours at SBC and 15 credit hours at Providence University College (PUC) to complete a TESOL certificate from PUC.
