student reviews i had previous education at other colleges and felt like a number i did not feel as if the professors there cared about my well-being or if i actually even understood the content of the class at central the professors pour into their students and share their lives with their students if i did not understand they would work with me until i did they truly love and care for their students i have learned more about my lord and savior and grown into a deeper relationship with him i love the professors here they actually care if you are learning and about your well-being outside of the classroom this has really encouraged me in my studies and my overall learning experience the professors and the classes have really helped me to become closer to god the central environment is so unique and special i think the classes are great and the information i ve received has been really helpful but more than that i think the people here have stretched me more than anything the staff the students they are all phenomenal and i m so glad to have been a part of this cccb has done well to facilitate a comfortable and safe learning environment in a community that supports and encourages one another teachers and staff model character-based leadership and provide opportunities to lead

central has helped mold me into the christian leader i am today by having a faculty and staff of caring individuals who would not give up on me the people at cccb have truly made my college experience something i will never forget whether in school at church or in my own home cccb has gone above and beyond every expectation i had for a christian college i am a better person because of cccb it has helped stretch my mind to grasp biblical concepts and understand the importance of scripture the respect i have attained for scripture has happened especially due to this institution central has encouraged me to think in ways i never had before professors invest lots of time and energy into helping me grow the expectations are high we are given many opportunities to get our feet wet in experiencing real-life ministry i have learned who i really am here i am an online student but i can say the online experience i have had with all the professors has been amazing the students in the courses are also very supportive and helpful to each other since i enrolled at cccb the college has been nothing but beneficial i have been exposed to so many different types of people from all different areas of the country denominations ages backgrounds and beliefs i feel like i have a better understanding of people in general and myself as well it has been a great place to grow in my knowledge of christ i have great ministry opportunities at churches internships and on the mission field
