Our Purpose

God has given Carver Baptist Bible College, Institute & Theological Seminary a vision for raising up and training dynamic and effective Christian leaders for urban America. Carver exists to bring the powerful life and society changing Gospel to the inner city.

Carver Baptist Bible College, Institute & Theological Seminary specializes in the training of pastors, missionaries, and lay workers for ministry in local churches, especially for minority communities in America. The College provides a relevant biblical, theological education which emphasizes discipleship and preparation for ministry in contemporary cultures.

Carver is greatly blessed by God to have an excellent faculty, composed primarily of experienced missionaries and competent volunteer pastors with many years in ministry. Most of our faculty have been involved for years in cross-cultural ministries enabling them to more effectively teach in urban America.

As Carver has experienced missionaries on our staff and faculty, we are able to keep the tuition low and enable our students to graduate without debt. This blessing has allowed most of our students to go immediately into ministry after graduation without having to pay off staggering and crippling school debts.
