GRACEVILLE (BCF)—The Baptist College of Florida in Graceville has been approved to provide college courses through electronic delivery since 1999.  But according to BCF President Thomas A. Kinchen, the college received a tremendous boost in its efforts from a recent letter received from its primary accreditation agency.  

In the letter dated Jan. 22, the president of the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools noted BCF has approval to move forward with offering all of its courses and degree programs online. 

“This is a watershed moment for us,” Kinchen said. “We can now offer online delivery for courses in all of our degree programs as well as entire degree programs online. We have been working toward this for over fourteen years, and I am absolutely delighted with this approval.”

The newly approved program means that a greater number of students will be able to pursue fully accredited education without relocating from their homes and places of service.

“We want all of our programs to be ‘ministry friendly’ so that students can serve while learning and learn while serving,” Kinchen said. Accordingly, the recently approved Master of Arts in Christian Studies and Master of Arts in Music and Worship Leadership each have major components that are completed online. Once approval is received from the Florida Department of Education, the college is prepared immediately to begin the new online programming.

If completing a degree or taking classes online from the comfort of home or current ministry location is appealing, please contact BCF at 850-263-3261, ext. 460, or access the website at baptistcollege.edu and request more information.
