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 CCBC 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!

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.

"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.
