Faulkner University’s College of Biblical Studies’ mission is to develop the whole person through spiritual, character, and intellectual formation for service in God’s kingdom through sharing the gospel in order to lift the spiritual and physical well-being of people for God’s glory. In pursuit of this mission, the College of Biblical Studies searches for students who have a vision to devote themselves in the ministry of the gospel as their life’s vocation to people in our diverse world.
The Vanguard Program seeks Christian volunteers to participate in ministry activities. This program provides mentoring and educational opportunities related to ministry and missions activities for those that volunteer for the program. The Vanguard Team is composed of a group of exceptional students from the Vanguard Program who are majoring in one of the Bible degree tracks and have earned a Vanguard scholarship. They represent Faulkner University and serve to encourage and recruit quality students interested in pursuing a Bible degree.
These students maintain preaching and teaching appointments primarily from September through May. They are available to visit congregations and other venues to preach, teach and participate in various ministry activities. They also take these opportunities to raise awareness of the Bible degree programs, make contacts with future Bible majors, and encourage interested students in selecting Faulkner University’s Bible program to pursue a quality Christian education.
