Bethany College has a rich history. After several years of holding classes in nearby churches, a permanent school was established in Hepburn in 1927. During the forties, this school was named Bethany Bible College and ran a five-year program for those wishing to enter full-time ministry. Former principles and presidents have been: D.B. Esau, J.B. Toews, G.D. Huebert, G.W. Peters, J.H. Epp, A.H. Wieler, Corny Braun, Ike Bergen, Cliff Jantzen, James Nikkel, and Doug Berg.
The mission of Bethany College is to nurture disciple and train leaders to serve. We offer a verity of programs to train our students whether they are seeking a closer relationship with God and a better understanding of the Bible, to enhance skills and become better servants in the local church, or are looking to serve in Christian Mini on a full-time basis.
Twice each year, Bethany√Ę‚?¨‚?Ęs students can apply for Financial Assistance Awards. Typical awards range from $100-$500. We are grateful to the generous donors and families who have provided endowment funds to Bethany College; most awards are paid from interest generated.
