About ABC

Arrowhead Bible College is a one-year program of intense study, fun, and relationship building. Designed to better equip students to live Godly lives as they continue on to higher education or to leadership roles in their churches and communities. Focusing on scripture and the Christian disciplines, ABC provides discipleship and a solid foundation in the word of God.

Location

Boasting a rustic campus set in the beautiful foothills of the Beartooth Mountains, Arrowhead Bible College offers students both a chance to enjoy a true wilderness setting and to focus on their studies far from the noise and distraction of more urban environments; while still being located with driving distance of Montana’s two most vibrant cities. The school is a welcoming environment for hikers, off-roaders, and equestrians, as well as students who desire the quiet and peaceful lifestyle that come from living in the wilds of Montana.

Academics

Arrowhead Bible College offers a one-year program of study, centered around personal development and discipleship. The college utilizes a modular course design, intended to ensure both depth and breadth of experience; giving students access to missions opportunities and hands-on study, as well as formal lecture by some of the top Christian professors in the nation. Students embark on an oversees study tour of Israel, learn about church organization and volunteer service, and are given knowledge to be instrumental in aiding the Body of Christ.
