Student Testimonials

Dear Staff,

“I just wanted to let you know what a blessing you are.  I have been in the ministry for 13 years and always wanted to go to Bible college.  With a wife and two small children, it was a far off dream until I found you.  I have been working on a bachelor degree at a public university for several years while working full time.  When I found you in an internet search for Bible training, I was thrilled.  Your classes are affordable and flexible.  I completed my diploma in February and immediately enrolled at ACU to complete my BBS.  I am so excited that God has placed you in my life to help with my dream.  I have thoroughly enjoyed learning more through your classes.  Thank you for having such a tremendous vision!”

 Dear Staff,

“I must say that the response to sending me my degree was very business-like, and also very quick.  I received it in perfect condition today.  I am interested in pursuing my education to the next level, and when I make up my mind, I know that this is one university that I can depend on.”

Thank You.                                                                                     

Student H. F. from Clayton, NC

I have just finished Old Testament Survey. I have been a Bible study teacher for years, but still have learned so very much from this study. God’s Word is something you NEVER stop learning from and I just praise God for sending me to find Ames It has changed the entire direction of my life! Can’t wait to begin New Testament survey! I am so enlightened by what I am learning and I thank you, Ames, for making this wonderful course available to Students who could not otherwise afford to attend Bible College. I do plan to keep going with this and work towards my bachelors degree with AISOM and Ames University. 

Student S. L. from Lexington, NC

“Thank God I am a student at Ames.  I found it very exciting with my studies.  I am almost finished with the New Testament Survey.  I am looking forward to every course.  It has been a great time of refreshing for me… ”

“I just completed Biblical Management Principles, and I can start to feel the Holy Spirit’s call to service.  I would like to praise the Lord and thank Ames Bible College for helping me find my way again.  Thank you.”

 Student A. D. from Taiwan

“I am so excited and thankful for this opportunity to do these studies.  I am gonna share this with a few sisters in my church.  This will truly bless our little community, and I am so happy about it!! …I will be praying for your college and your ministry.”

Student C. C. from California

“I have been working on “Battle for the Body” and wow, what a concept.  I have been a pastor for nine (9) years and have barely even scratched the surface of all the knowledge.  I am finding the wisdom is great and I like what I see.  The lessons are challenging.  If we only knew as pastors what God is really like we would be a lot more effective in our ministries.”

Student Pastor K. A. of Oregon

“I want to express my delight in my first study course.  It is truly enjoyable, and rich in a wealth of information.  It is concise and to the point – simple, but yet profound in context.  I  want to express my appreciation to Ames Christian University for making such a wonderful program available, and most of all to the Lord for directing me to your Website. “

Student D. F. from Texas

“Spent some time this weekend reviewing the OT Survey one more time before starting the NT Survey.  Amazing how much you have packed into these studies – especially in the “For Further Study” sections at the end of the chapters!  Just began the Basic Bible Survey – Part Two – the New Testament and completed Matthew.  The outline provided is truly extensive, complete.  This chapter has really whet my appetite – I know I am going to enjoy this entire study.  Again – the “For Further Study” section opened my eyes to details missed.  These studies are truly changing me.  Thank you and God Bless You.  I pray that these studies not only change me but that I may use what I learn to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ effectively wherever and however God chooses.”

Student M. Z. from New York

“I am enjoying my studies very much. Thank you for allowing me to study God’s word with your Bible College… I have purchased myself a Strong’s Complete Dictionary of Bible words to help me in my quest…may God bless you and your good works.  Thanks again.”

Student J. B. from North Carolina

“I completed “A Biblical Worldview” and starting on “Kingdom Living” and “Knowing God’s Voice”.  Have presented to my church the Biblical Worldview and have found a good response in starting our own group to support those in other countries.  Thank you for the blessing of this course.”

Student T. R. from California

“I am really enjoying the Old Testament survey. The added study sections after the self-tests are really good. I am currently in the book of Judges and I seem to be coming along well. God has blessed me with a mind ready to search out and receive His truth.  Thank you for this ministry and I am very pleased with the materials so far and I look forward to the coming modules.”  

Student M. H. from Tennessee

“I enjoyed the first course I am taking.  Although between work and my home life with the wife and child I do not get as much studying done as I would like but I am moving along.  I would like to say thank you for offering these courses at such affordable prices otherwise I would not be able to go to college right now.”

Student M. D. from Illinois

“I have spent a good part of the day reading “Basic Bible Survey One” and it looks great!  I have previously taken an Old Testament survey course and your course is more comprehensive.”

Student F. M. from Norway 

“I have just recently finished the final exam for Old Testament survey and am preparing to start the next course, New Testament survey.  I have enjoyed the layout of the courses.  They are informative, simple, and easy to follow, yet offer the challenge that an accredited course should offer.  Thank You.”

Student J. C. from Virginia 

“Hi, it has been close to one week since I enrolled in your college.  I just completed Chapter 5 in the Old Testament Survey course.  I think the way Harvestime International has put these courses together is great.  I am very excited about the studies and being enrolled at Ames.  I wish I would have found out about Ames a long time ago.”

Student C. J. from Illinois

“Genesis has turned out to be a great study.  I’ve spent a little too much time on it and have slowed down on progress with the rest of the course, but I think it has been worth it.  The course has turned out to be even better than I thought it would be.

Student R. S. from Texas

“I’m taking the test on Biblical Management right now and I’m moving forward to the next course. This course is great been, doing this for almost a year now.  With my busy schedule I needed a course that was effective and flexible; this is it.”

We daily pray for the Lord to send us students that are hungry to know Him. You may not be here by chance. Finding AMES was perhaps a divine appointment to prepare you for your kingdom destiny.
