My name is Sarah. I’m planning on developing Christian curriculum, but knowing God comes first.

Twenty-five year old, Spokane native Sarah Lampman attended community college and then moved on to study at a Bible college in the Northwest for a time before dropping out.
“I was dissatisfied with the level of education at my previous Bible college, which is why I did not return after my first year,” says Sarah. “I still had a strong desire to study the Bible on an academic level, but I didn’t know how I could be sure that any other institution wouldn’t be more of the same. So I gave up the idea of Bible college for the time being.”
Discovering the Reformed tradition in her early twenties, Sarah revisited the idea of Bible college but had trouble finding a college that was in line with her scriptural convictions.
“I simply couldn’t find one in the States,” she says. “So I began my search for schools overseas. Then, one day, I happened to see the announcement on Ligonier’s website for their new undergraduate program. It was exactly what I was looking for. I’m still astonished at the Lord’s blessing in bringing me here.”
Sarah knew that RBC would be the perfect foundation for her vocational desire to develop Christian curriculum and enrolled in our Bachelor of Arts in Biblical and Theological Studies program. “RBC is where I believed I could receive the most faithful and serious presentation of the Scriptures,” she says, “and after being here almost two years, I still believe that. It was also very appealing financially.”
“Words can’t express how grateful I am for the education I’ve received at RBC,” says Sarah. “I love the fellowship among the students, the small class size, the humble and godly example of the professors, but most of all, my deepened understanding of the Scriptures.”
To students considering study at RBC, Sarah has some good advice. “RBC is a lot of work. Your studies will be rigorous and the material weighty. But if you come with a humble heart and a teachable spirit, your time and effort will not be in vain…Having a good foundation in the Scriptures is relevant for any career or life path, and I think all Christians considering higher education should consider Reformation Bible College.”
