GPBC was founded in 2012 by Pastor William Reeves under the North Platte Baptist Church. The main goal for our college is to teach young people how to successfully serve in the ministry wherever God leads them. We believe that the best way to learn ministry is to serve in the ministry.
Here are a few more quotes from students here at GPBC.
"At GPBC, every teacher strives to help the students become skilled in their tasks. Because everyone here helps each other and cares so much, we have become a close knit family."
"GPBC is all about the ministry! From the very first class to the last, you will learn vital information to help you better serve wherever God would have you to be."
Being in full-time ministry for over twenty years has opened my eyes to just how many people graduate from Bible College and begin serving God only to fizzle out. These people become "flash in the pan" pastors and servants of God. Many say they are called to serve in the ministry and begin in excitement, but when faced with the unexpected and daunting circumstances, they often move from ministry to ministry never really accomplishing anything, or they quit entirely. In almost every case, it is because they lack a realistic understanding of "Small Town America." It is common to carry an adopted expectation of how things should work in order to be successful. This thinking is set in the mind during the young and impressionable years.
Here at GPBC, it is our goal to give you a set of dynamic tools that are applicable to the building of small ministries, as well as large. We do not believe that we have come up with a "NEW" way of doing things, but we do believe that we can produce a mindset that will be more helpful to the longevity and balance needed in serving God in this present day! If the Lord tarries, we need servants of God who know how to stay serving and never drop their sails while maintaining a fervency of expectation of God's hand of blessing through the good and the bad! The hope of America is not in "mega" churches and colleges, but from the churches, no matter the size, scattered all across this great land that have stayed faithful to God's Word without compromise.
I look forward to getting to know you and working beside you as you prepare for God's service!
