We are heading into the Fall Semester and eagerly waiting for the students to show up next week! (By the way, it’s not too late to apply for the Fall 2016 semester!) As we anticipate the students’ arrival, let’s read about some Alumni’s experiences at KBC!
-Peter Schmidt, Student: Fall 2014
“My time during KBC was not only a life-changing experience, but it now serves as an integral part of my testimony. I was born and raised a Christian. I went to church. I served in the church. I had Christian friends and a Christ based family life. Some would say I had a perfect childhood. However, it wasn’t until I went to KBC, that one fall, that my life was forever changed. I went to KBC not knowing what to expect, and I was pleasantly surprised. It was not only in Kauai, one of the most beautiful places on the planet, but it was lead by a staff that was so genuine and backed by a church that was so loving. With an environment like that no wonder I was able to learn so much, find myself, and grow in my relationship with God.
On a more personal note, when I was there I went through some hard times, but God used the teaching, the community, and the ‘Ohana to engage me on a deep and profound level. God used everything that came my way, whether it was sitting in a classroom or feeding the homeless, to mold me into becoming the man I am today. One of the biggest things that I learned from KBC was about being open. I learned that to grow and to receive help, especially as the external processor that I am, I needed to be open and honest with other people. More often than not just telling someone what was bothering me helped me process and gave me insight into what was going on, instead letting it wallow in my head or sweeping it under the carpet. Learning how to be transparent and how to accept help from others was one of the biggest things that I needed that helped me learn even more at KBC. My life ever since Kauai has changed for the better. I am still growing and learning, but having a stronger relationship with Jesus, because of KBC, has changed how I deal with all of it, and that is worth it.”
“Attending Kauai Bible College for a year will always be considered a huge experience in my life. It holds an extra special place in my heart. Kauai is a beautiful island. It’s a lush jungle, painted with the deepest of red soils. It is truly a paradise of adventure. The biggest thing I learned attending KBC was how to kill abnormally large bugs with a machete. Okay, but truly I learned how to study my bible and enjoy it. The classes had great depth and truly improved my biblical knowledge kine. I particularly enjoyed studying the book of Acts. I loved how closely the church and the college were connected, I think that’s what made it feel like a family. It was such a blessing to have a Hanai family. Uncle Russell is also a huge part of making it feel like home for all the students. I am so thankful for all the friends I made at KBC; everyone felt like siblings. It’s been awesome to remain in contact with most and even spend time with a few here on the mainland. Eager to visit Kauai and KBC again! Miss you all!”
“The time that I spent at Kauai Bible College were the greatest times I spent in my life. During my time at KBC, I learned things about Christianity and God that will stick with me forever. During my second semester at KBC, I faced a depression that ultimately lead me to rejecting Jesus as my Lord and Savior for a time. It had nothing to do with the college but more to do with personal things. God met me though during one of my darkest days and taught me how hard things happen sometimes to make you stronger. I came out of it a man that has never dealt with a depression like that again. The support from friends there and the staff helping me through that was something that has changed me for the rest of my life. Kauai Bible College is a wonderful place that will always be close to my heart and in my prayers.”
