Practicums are adviser-directed areas of practical ministry and service opportunities intended to help strengthen and release spiritual gifts in students. The idea is that some of the Holy Spirit’s best work happens when believers are focused on serving others. Practicums involve at least 144 hours of serving per semester within the context of the local church; we believe the local church is the ideal context for this kind of hands-on learning.

Degrees Offered:

Students who successfully complete all classes will receive CCBC degree credits. Currently, CCBC has exempt degree-granting status in the state of California and grants 2 degrees:

  1.  Certificate of Theology – for those who successfully complete 32 credits. (1 year degree)
  2.  Associate of Theology – for those who successfully complete 64 credits. (2 year degree)

Students are automatically registered at the start of each semester for the required courses offered during each term. During the 2018-2019 school year, students had the option to take a Spanish course as their elective. 

NOTE: CCBC has historically always been able to offer at least 16 credits per semester (the minimum needed to earn a degree). Offering the full 16 credits of courses is however dependant upon CCBC having enough instructors available in any given semester to provide all the credits needed for students to earn a degree. In the case the CCBC does not have enough instructors to offer the full 16 credits in any given, students who want to earn a CCBC degree may need to earn the additional credits elsewhere outside of CCBC. The two options available to students are: (1) transfer in qualifying credits to CCBC from previous college courses taken, or (2) take online courses at Portland Bible College (for an additional cost) and transfer those credits to CCBC to complete a degree from CCBC.

Students are not required to earn a degree from CCBC during their enrollment here. Earning a degree exclusively from CCBC degree is an option that is only made available to students when we have enough instructors to be able to offer enough credits to earn the degree.

Morning prayer times, when in my first year I had asked previous graduates if they could give me one piece of advice what would it be? They told me to never miss prayer times no matter how tired or sick you felt. Now as a graduate of CCBC, I will say this is true. Prayer times for me were the most impactful. It was in these times when I got to experience and begin to live a life of worship, and tuning in to the Holy Spirit. It is because of times like this that now when I enter into life outside of these times, I know how to tap into this necessary lifeline, because it became something I needed on a daily basis.

Coming into my first year, I knew I was somewhat in over my head but in a good way. I had come into my first year with a lot of brokenness and was so open for the healing process that God wanted to work through me. The community was everything that I needed and the structure of life and discipline was very crucial for me to have. The moments of being in a track called "outreach" really showed me how to look past myself and look at the beauty in others. Even encounters shaped my life. Coming into the year, I had different soul ties and was addicted to cigarettes, and today I stand firm to say I have full freedom over those things. My second year was different that’s for sure. It was teaching me how to put my leadership skills into practice. The main thing about my second year that shaped me was the missions trip to Africa. Hearing God promise to me that I would go to Africa and seeing it be fulfilled in a matter of just several weeks was miraculous. Truly California Coast Bible College is more than just a college degree, but it's a supernatural environment waiting to be tapped in to.

California Coast Bible College is training for the race of a lifetime. This program equips you with the necessary tools to grow in your journey with Christ and prepare you for His work. It is engaging in soul-training by weekly prayer and worship, and dynamic lectures from instructors who love God, His Word and impart their knowledge and anointing on you. It is serving in the local church and gaining God's heart for people. It is taking the gospel out and being a voice to this generation.

When I first stepped foot in Ventura, I had no idea what I was walking in to. But without fail, this program radically changed my life. I wasn't fortunate enough to come from a Christian home, but that didn't stop God from grabbing hold of my heart. When I got to California, it's almost as if God was saying "Finally, kid, you heard Me." I fell in love with this perfect beach town, my apartment of 7 girls who will all be in my wedding, every Pastor who poured countless hours into my life, and most importantly I fell more in love with my Savior.

"You can have as much of God as you want, how much you get is up to you". Those words were some of the first I heard three years ago when I left all I knew to come be a part of a program that would forever change my life. I had spent 18 years running from a God that loved me relentlessly; however, now I found myself at the start of a new adventure, one where I started chasing Him back. California Coast Bible College gave me an environment where I found who God really was, and in finding Him I found who I was really meant to be.
