Frame your Future

For Students

Choosing the next step along your path for education and life-long learning is a big decision and we’re here to help.

Here are some resources to help you better understand who we are, where we are, what we offer and how we can impact your life in a positive and productive way.

Answers to frequently asked questions:

Do you have sports?

Although we may not have any organized sports teams, we do have a full gymnasium with a basketball court and fitness room.  We have several organized fun coed games of volleyball and basketball throughout the year.  We also have a soccer field, a little league sized baseball diamond, and a tennis court.  There is a golf course locally.

What is there to do in the area?

Faith BCI is located in central Maine, surrounded by trees and rolling hills, and is not too far from almost everything:  beaches, shopping, mountains, lakes, the ocean.  We experience all 4 seasons, which allows opportunities for boating, kayaking, swimming, fishing, and fun in the sun during the warmer late summer months; campfires, hiking, moose watching, and the change in foliage in the fall; snowboarding, skiing, snowmobiling, tubing, and playing in the snow during the winter months; four-wheeling, mudding, and baseball in the spring.  Bangor is just 30 minutes from us, where you can find the Bangor Mall and other stores, movie theaters, restaurants, concerts, sporting events and much, much more!

What can I do with my degree?

With your Bachelor’s in Theological Studies, you can go right out into the ministry as a pastor, youth pastor, worship leader, missionary, Christian educator, or evangelist.  Or you can transfer your credits to further your education.

What do you offer academically? Majors? Minors?

Faith offers an Associate Degree in Theological Studies or a Bachelor’s Degree in Theological Studies.  Students can choose a minor in Pastoral Theology, Missions, Christian Education or Music.  See more on our cornerstone program or degree programs.

What are the dormitories like?

Faith currently has one dormitory building, Tracy Hall, with a floor for the ladies and a floor for the men.  The rooms in the dormitory are spacious and shared with one roommate.  They are furnished with 2 closets, a window (some have 2 windows), 2 dressers, 2 desks, 2 bookshelves, a single bed and a set of single bunk beds.  Each dormitory has a lounge with couches and a television; a kitchen area with refrigerators, microwaves, sinks, and eating space; laundry facilities and spacious bathrooms.  We also have limited space in the dormitory, on the first floor, for married couples.

How is the food?

We do our best here at Faith to give students a variety of balanced meals throughout the week.  Offering breakfast, lunch and dinner on most days, students are provided with fruits, vegetables, sandwiches, salads, soups, pasta dishes, meats, potatoes, rice, and much more.  If what’s being served doesn’t sound appealing we have an on campus “Snack Bar” offering a great selection of grilled and fried foods like chicken tenders, French fries, burgers, steak n cheese sandwiches, and other specials.

What kind of activities do you have?

At Faith, we aim to plan one organized activity each month.  Activities we have done in the past:  shopping, tubing, apple picking, a movie night, volleyball, softball, hiking, a game night, and bowling.  The Student Association also organizes several events throughout the year, such as Welcome Week, a Christmas Banquet, and Spirit Week, and students are encouraged to take advantage of our beautiful facilities and surroundings.

Are there ministry opportunities? Missions? Crusades?

Students at Faith have opportunities to get involved with local churches, as they get plugged in and make it their “home” church while attending school.  They also have an opportunity to take a ministry course each semester while attending Faith, in which the school will schedule weekend services and a week-long Crusade for the student to participate in.

Can I bring my car?

Yes!  We ask that you register your car with us, providing proof of registration and insurance, along with your license, and park in the designated student parking area of the campus.

Do you have financial aid? Scholarships?

Since we are not accredited through the government we cannot offer financial aid, but we do have limited scholarship opportunities for students unable to meet their financial obligations.  In the second and further years, there are opportunities for SWAP, a Student Work Assistance Program, where students can work off up to $750 of their Dormitory Fee.  We are currently in the process of working with an outside company regarding financing in the near future.
