Students whose parents are currently working as full-time pastors or missionaries are eligible for a pastoral discount through CCBC. This discount of $500 will be applied to a student's tuition costs. Pastoral discounts are not available to cover housing costs. Students apply for the pastoral discount on their initial application or by contacting the admissions office at: admissions@californiacoastbiblecollege.org.

Fund Raising

We are aware that the two tuition payments may be a financial stretch for some of you. We have been praying for each of you and want to encourage you to communicate with us regarding any financial questions or needs so that we may be in agreement in prayer. God is so faithful! We see countless financial miracles EVERY YEAR – so don’t lose heart.

Galatians 6:9 admonishes us to “not grow weary in doing well, for we will receive a harvest in due season if we do not give up.”  We don’t believe that finances alone should ever stop a student from doing what God is calling them to do. If finances are the only obstacle preventing you from coming to CCBC, contact us so we can discuss your situation specifically.

Support Letter

One way you can proactively seek out financial support is by sending a support letter to some of your family, friends, church members, home church, and co-workers. Download the 2018-19 support letter template here. Its a document we have already created that describes the program and what students will be involved in during the year. You can use it as a tool to send people to ask them to support you financially with either a one-time gift or with a monthly commitment. We also highly encourage that you personalize each support letter by writing a short introductory paragraph that is specific to the person you are addressing it to.

Go Fund Me

Another way to raise money is by creating a free GoFundMe account that you can share on social media or with friends and family. 


We encourage students to not incur debt to pay for California Coast Bible College, but at times a loan that can be paid off monthly while a student is in school is the only option for a student. If a student decides to get a loan for their education we encourage them to see it like a financing option that will help them to be able to make monthly payments on thier tuition amount (to the lender) instead of having to pay all of it up front. Below are a few options students can explore to see to see if they can qualify for a loan:

1. Private student loan - private student loan resource (Credible) or best private student loan lenders (LendEDU)

2. Student credit card - best student credit cards for students with no credit (WalletHub) or all student credit cards (WalletHub)

3. Personal loan or credit card


I was set on getting my bachelor's degree and never would have thought that I would do CCBC or any Bible college, but God put it on my heart to dedicate nine months completely to Him. He revealed to me that growing in my relationship with Him and as a leader would prepare me for whatever field I end up in, whether it be ministry or in the secular world. CCBC truly prepares you for life and shows you that walking with God daily is essential. Even if you know you aren't called to full time ministry, CCBC helps to set an amazing foundation for your life!

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.

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.

"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.

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.
