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.
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, Immanuel PCA, Reformation OPC, 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.”
RBC students have an opportunity to mature and develop life skills together through renting local apartments. Sharing an apartment with classmates will allow you to gain independence, responsibility, and a closer community of friends. 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.
