Orientation Weekend at RBC

Posted On August 15, 2016

Reformation Bible College welcomed its sixth incoming class on Friday, August 12, for New Student Orientation. This year’s class includes forty-five students from fourteen states.

The day began with a tour of the school and an introduction to the faculty and staff. The tour also included guidance from the professors and staff on navigating college life. Highlights included conversations concerning involvement in the local church, financial management, and glorifying God with one’s time.

At lunch, the new students spent some time getting to know one another and the faculty. They also received an introduction to the student ministry at Saint Andrew’s Chapel, which shares the same campus with Ligonier Ministries and RBC. Lunch concluded with information about student life at RBC and how to get involved in the student-led campus fellowship group.

In the afternoon, Ligonier Ministries President and CEO Chris Larson spoke on the relationship between Ligonier and the college.

Dr. David Briones, professor of New Testament, encouraged the new students to heed the Apostle Paul’s admonition in Romans 13 to “be subject to the governing authorities,” while Nathan W. Bingham, Ligonier’s senior manager of communications, spoke with the students on the responsible use of social media in our changing culture.

The day closed with a time of prayer as the students gathered with their academic advisors.
