Faculty

Administration

The Administration of West Coast Baptist College is committed to a hands-on approach to the everyday life of the students. Every member of the Administration is involved in teaching on a daily basis in the classroom and mentoring outside the classroom through the activities of student life. Students are encouraged to take advantage of the open-door policy of the Administration and seek counsel from them on any subject. Students know that at least one member of the Administration is always on campus to help them with any needs that they have.

Our instructors come from over twenty different colleges and seminaries and represent over 700 years of experience in the ministry. Every member of the faculty and staff is a soulwinner and involved in a ministry of the Lancaster Baptist Church. Students realize within days of their arrival that the faculty and staff are a constant presence on campus and are always available to mentor them in their academic, social, or spiritual lives.
