We believe faith flourishes when Christians share the joys and struggles of life in a trusted community.
During the semester, attend weekly chapel services designed to nourish you spiritually and call you to greater service in the church. Every week, students hear from gifted speakers, including RBC professors, staff from Ligonier Ministries, and other pastors, preachers, and theological leaders like Albert Mohler, Derek Thomas, and Sinclair Ferguson.
We share a purpose to study, grow, serve, and worship Christ together as a community. Join a close-knit student body and build meaningful, lasting friendships. Be mentored by professors and college staff who walk alongside you and actually know you.
Conveniently located in the main hall, the RBC café provides a gathering place for students to connect on their way to class or the student commons. Our menu offers a selection of freshly brewed coffee, lattes, mochas, tea, and hot chocolate. Stop by to get refreshed, catch up with a classmate at one of the coffee tables, gather around the couches to collaborate for a group assignment, or find your favorite reading spot.
Next to the café in the main hall, our bookstore features carefully selected resources to help students succeed in their studies, flourish in their faith, and grow in their gospel witness. Several books and teaching series from Ligonier Ministries are also available. Of course, our college bookstore would be incomplete without a range of RBC-themed apparel, coffee mugs, water bottles, and more. Carry the college seal with you as a constant reminder of our calling to know, worship, and serve God in all of life.
Our preview day events allow you to attend a class, meet and talk with professors and current students, and learn more about life as an RBC student. Attendees are encouraged to stay for one of our evening academic events or weekend conferences as well.
A campus tour allows you the flexibility to schedule a personalized visit. During your tour, meet professors and current students, sit in on a class, and speak with our Admissions team.
Engaging students off campus
At RBC, we take church seriously. All students are required to become members of a local congregation within six months of starting classes. The Orlando area offers countless opportunities to plug into a vibrant and faithful church community. Many of our students attend Saint Andrew’s Chapel, St. Paul's PCA, Reformation OPC, Grace Fellowship, and many other Reformed Baptist and Presbyterian churches in the area.
Students enjoy exploring the adventurous activities of Central Florida. You can spend time at local beaches, go kayaking, tubing, or hiking at nearby state parks, or visit coffee shops and amazing restaurants. RBC is also located in the Orlando area, only a short drive from attractions like Disney World, Universal Studios, Sea World, and the Kennedy Space Center.
Throughout our spring and fall semesters, students can dive into any number of events and activities together including sports tournaments, picnics, game nights, and more. Students lead and organize off-campus events, like Abide, a biweekly Bible study and worship night. They also plan dinners, game nights, study sessions, and other events. Students are also able to attend Ligonier and RBC conferences for free.
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge.”
Construction on our new two-story residential hall is underway, and we’re eager to welcome students to live on campus once building is complete. With living spaces for 72 people, this new addition to our campus will provide students with a private room and bath for rest and study, plus shared space for fellowship and relaxation.
RBC students also have the opportunity to rent local apartments with classmates. As a new student, you will receive the support of our Student Care team, a committed group of staff and alumni, who will help you find affordable housing in the area and settle into your new home.
For those interested in part-time work, our student employment program allows students to apply for positions at RBC and Ligonier Ministries. We view student employment as an extension of the classroom and aim to foster valuable learning experiences and mentorship. These student jobs can also help you cover educational costs and living expenses without having to commute to off-campus work.
