Career Advancement

Whether you are interested in social work, teaching, full time ministry, the marketplace, or you are entrepreneurial and want to start your own business, our heart is to equip, train, and partner with you on your journey.  We believe that a critical part of that development comes through student involvement in church life, and encourage students to become faithful, active participants in our Practicum & Apprenticeship Ministry Experience.

Career Advancement is part of what makes Portland Bible College unique, and through Mannahouse, (formerly City Bible Church), and Portland Bible College alumni connections whether across the country or around the world, students are able to inquire about available positions within these local churches and organizations.  Our goal is to prepare students with job ready skills, and provide opportunities directly within a student’s field of expertise upon graduation.

Please reach out to Joy King our Director of Placement, for more information or to make an appointment if you would like to discuss future goals or plans.
