The school was founded in 1950 by Dr. Lester E. Pipkin and Rev. Robert S. Guelich. Pipkin served as the school's first President until he was replaced by Daniel L. Anderson, current president, in 1983.[1]


All students that enroll in ABC's dual major program degree have one major in Bible & Theology, and choose another Major in Camping, Elementary Education, Interdisciplinary Studies, Missions (Foreign Language, Internship, or Nursing), Music, Pastoral Studies (Greek or English), or Youth/Family Ministries (concentration in Biblical Counseling). The school also offers online courses through ABC Connect, and on campus modular classes for its Master of Arts in Ministry Degree.


ABC is accredited by both the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools and the Association for Biblical Higher Education.[2] ABC also maintains membership in the American Association of Christian Colleges and Seminaries.[3]
