An important update concerning New England Bible College:
June 30, 2014
Dear Friend of the College,
It is with great sadness we announce that New England Bible College will be closing its doors September 30, 2014. By unanimous vote, the Trustees moved to dissolve the institution due to the increasing pressures associated with several years of low enrollment and declining finances. This was a hard decision for the board as it represents the end of 35 years of faithful determination and gracious effort from all who have given their time, talent, and financial resources to the college.
During its time, New England Bible College has provided biblical education for hundreds of faithful pastors and Christian workers in Maine and beyond. NEBC has always adhered to the highest standards of educational excellence, and our graduates are the best evidence of this commitment. We firmly believe the Church of Jesus Christ is stronger and more prepared for these “last days” as a result of those who have received their education at NEBC.
Please pray for our staff as they seek the next steps God has for them during this transition. Pray also for the students who are seeking God’s leading to complete their studies. If you have any questions about the dissolution, please contact either President Francis or me. And thank you for your dedication and faithfulness over the many years you’ve stood with us as partners in biblical higher education.
In Christ Alone,
Rev. Robert E. Bell, Chairman
Board of Trustees
