Ambassador Baptist College (ABC) boasts a mission shared by only a select few Christian colleges, according to ambassadors.edu, the university’s website. That mission involves specifically training students to serve full time as ministers and representatives of God’s word. As a single focus college, the school offers programs to secure a Bachelors or Masters degree in Biblical Studies, or graduate programs to earn a Masters in Ministries or Sacred Theology. General courses offered include a three year Graduate of Theology program for men, a two year Church Secretary program for women and a one year certificate program in the Bible.
Evangelist Ron Comfort received the vision for Ambassador Baptist College in 1987 and for two years after that engaged in a fundraising and informational campaign in which he traveled to many areas, sharing his vision and goal with other ministers and Christians. As explained on ambassadors.edu, after raising nearly half a million dollars, he opened the university in Shelby, North Carolina in 1989, with 37 students. In time, and as the student population and faculty grew, the need manifested for a larger campus and in 1997 the school relocated to Lattimore, North Carolina.
