The 2022/2023 school year of the Nigerian Christian Bible College, Ukpom Abak started September 12 with obvious blossomness. We are excited to have all our returning students back with us and to welcome the new students into the NCBC family. During the break a lot of efforts were put into campaigning for souls for Christ and campaigning for students for the programs of the college. The campaign yielded tremendous results which now account for the blossom beginning of this school year.

Statistically, the three programs offered by the NCBC have received a share of these new students, with the Ministerial Program receiving the lion share of 40 new students out of the 55 new students in total. The Bachelor of Arts, Religious Education and the Bachelor of Arts Religious Studies programs which are affiliated to the University of Calabar received 8 and 7 new students respectively. These, in addition to the returning students have made the number of students currently receiving training in the Nigerian Christian Bible College to be ninety (90). Among the new students joining, we have a couple who are committed to the works in Christ’s vineyard and are enthusiastic about upgrading their knowledge of God’s word for efficiency. Brother Joseph Abua and the wife, Sister Cecilia Joseph are doing the Bachelor of Acts Religious Education and Ministerial Programs respectively. It is good news to have a couple as students living on the NCBC’s campus after many years.

We are pleased to mention here that this school year also started understudying an opportunity of establishing a new NCBC center at Abi Local Government Area of Cross River State, in order to take our programs closer to those who have been yearning to be trained at the NCBC. Fifteen(15) candidates have already indicated interest and completed admission forms. The NCBC management plans to visit there for visibility studies and evangelism between October 14 – 16, 2022. With this center starting, the total number of students for the NCBC’s programs is totalling one hundred and five (105)

We trust God to continue to blossom our academic and spiritual endeavors towards equipping these students to be useful to themselves, the Church, and the society at large, to bless the teaming NCBC’s staff who are repositioning for even more effective service delivery,  and expand the frontiers of His kingdom here on earth to glorify His name.
