Parkersburg Bible College was founded in 1985 by Dr. Joe Nelson out of a burden for Christian Education. The purpose of PBC is to train Christian leaders who will be influential in their church ministries. PBC is accredited by the ALJC.
From 1985 to 1989 the college was located south of downtown Parkersburg. In 1989 the college moved to its present campus in north Parkersburg. Over the years PBC has grown in its facilities, its resources, its branches and its alumni.
PBC is now placing curriculum in the hands of foreign missionary workers. The material has been prepared in a workable manner that students receive day-to-day lessons that will work into a completed course unit of studies.
Our Systematic branches have grown to a total of twenty-two branches. We now have missionaries using our material in West Germany, Russia, Philippines, Jamaica, and the Grand Caymans.
With our continuing educational program around the world you can draw from Parkersburg Bible College resources to better prepare yourself in our ever changing society.
