240 Club

In 1979, Bishara Awad presented his Dream to start a Bible College in Bethlehem with a group of pastors.  Being so inspired by this dream, one pastor immediately wrote a check for $20.  With $20 and an idea, Bethlehem Bible College has become a leading Christian institution in the Holy Land. 

The 240 Club, inspired by this story, has been an accessible way for organizations, churches and friends worldwide to support the Ministry of Bethlehem Bible College.  Since its founding in 1979, BBC has been able to purchase its small campus and add a Public Library, classrooms, a Guest House, and a New Student Center with the help of the 240 Club and donors like you.

We invite you to join in the work of training Christian leaders and empowering Christians in the Holy Land by becoming a member of the Bethlehem 240 Club or by renewing your current membership.  Members are encouraged to pray for the College and give $20 monthly ($240 annually) for a year or two. Your gift will directly affect our students, faculty, and the Palestinian community.
