HOUSTON, Texas, July 1, 2019 /Christian Newswire/ – The College of Biblical Studies in Houston, TX and Crossroads Bible College in Indianapolis, IN have officially merged. This announcement comes at the end of more than 18 months of preparation by boards and leadership teams of both schools to merge the two institutions. With this merger, CBS-Houston has relocated the Indianapolis campus from 601 N. Shortridge to the Indianapolis landmark, Pyramids at College Park.
CBS-Houston has worked extensively to expand the opportunities for Crossroads’ students: More degree programs, lower tuition, expanded scholarships and financial aid, updated technology, modern campus, and most importantly, regional and national accreditation.
“The College of Biblical Studies and Crossroads Bible College have long shared a common goal of bringing quality biblical higher education to a multi-ethnic population,” said Dr. Bill Blocker, president of the College of Biblical Studies. “This merger equips us to accomplish this mission in new and greater ways, and it establishes a richer foundation for Indiana communities.”
The merging of the two schools expands the reach of CBS-Houston with the addition of the Indianapolis and Fort Wayne campuses, as well as broadening the on-campus and online programs. “This merger provides our students with exciting opportunities that were not available before. Regional accreditation and new degree programs will prepare them for the future in ways we could not have done on our own." said Dr. Charles Ware, president emeritus of Crossroads Bible College.
With the completion of the merger, the colleges will operate as the College of Biblical Studies and will offer classes in Houston, Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, and online.
