Faculty

Appalachian Bible College – ABC.edu

Just like every other college, we look for faculty members who excel in the classroom. However, the most important criteria is their character in the light of Scripture. Each of our faculty members is actively involved in a local church, embodies ABC's mission and motto, and has a 2 Timothy 2:2 heart.
