Because of our desire for ministry and burden to educate a generation for Christ, tuition and fees are discounted at such a rate to be affordable and attractive to potential and current students. However, tuition and fees do not cover the full cost of providing sound Biblical training.
The remainder of the cost is underwritten by Tabernacle Baptist Church as well as other supporting churches and individuals. Would you be willing to help us train a future generation for Christ?
There are many ways to give. Foundational to our financial undergirding is the Gideon’s 300 program. Those who commit to Gideon’s 300 underwrite this ministry by providing $300 or more annually. It is our prayer that God would raise up 300 individuals and churches to support us in this endeavor. Would you consider being a part of this ministry.
Another avenue of giving is the Titus Fund. The Titus Fund is used to underwrite the cost of educating select foreign students whom the administration feels will be key to providing future Biblical training in their respective countries. Click here to download a Titus Fund Brochure.
Other avenues of giving include one-time gifts, memorial gifts, annuities, wills, and estates. If you would be interested in giving through any of these means, please contact the registrar by emailing email@example.com or by calling us at 757-424-4673.

Scholarships and Financial Aid:
The College offers a series of scholarships and awards to assist certain students with the costs of their schooling. These financial benefits are funded from various sources including Tabernacle Baptist Church, individuals, and local businesses. At the present, students are not eligible for certain government and private loans and scholarships that are based on accreditation. However, several foundations exist that will help students in preparation for Christian service, and the College will cooperate with students and these foundations when such cooperation does not compromise in any way the stand of Tabernacle Baptist Church. Information about scholarships is available through the Registrar, and all requests will be handled by that office. Normally, each student is eligible for only one of the listed scholarships and these scholarships are not available for Seminary students.
