Rethinking Theological Education

A Letter From the President, Isaac Maddox

We are so excited for this coming school year and for what God is doing in the young people of this generation. They are passionate for truth and for the things of God. There is no better time than now to begin your ministry journey, learn who God has created you to be and dive deep into His Word! Activate Bible College is made up of Christ-centered leaders, filled the Holy Spirit and in love with the Word of God. Our team is anointed to equip the next generation of men and women who will lead the Church and positively impact every cultural arena they might step into. The mission of Activate Bible College is to offer biblically-centered and practical theology in a pastoral and personalized context. We are located in Camas, Washington, serving all local areas in the Portland / Vancouver metro area. If you are not local and wish to attend, contact our offices to discuss living options. We woud be happy to help find a place that fits your needs. Activate Bible College will be meeting three times per week (plus Sundays) for classes in the morning and practicum in the afternoon.
We are starting Activate Bible College because many people are hungry for teaching, truth and doctrine. We want our students to explore the fullness of theology and what scripture contains and reveals through the Greek and Hebrew hermanutics. We believe that all of life is rooted in your belief system which is anchored in your theology and understanding of scripture. We believe our partnership with Theos Seminary and Nathan Finochio offers the best Bible and theological experience on the planet. We welcome you on this journey as we rethink theological education. We believe this will catapult you into all God has for you while building a strong foundation in Biblical truth.
