Scheduling a visit to Ambassador Baptist College is easier than ever! We want pastors, youth pastors, and Christian teenagers to see first-hand what God is doing on our campus.

One of the best ways to learn about a Christian college is to sit in classes, listen to the preaching, and stay in the dorms. Below is some information that will help you with your visit!

Ambassador Baptist College Visitor Packet

How can I schedule a visit?

You may begin the process by calling 704-434-0303 and asking to schedule a visit, or by emailing Wanda Luiken at [email protected].

What usually takes place when groups visit the college?

All visitors are encouraged to attend classes and the daily chapel service. In addition, teens may meet with professors or the academic dean to learn more about classes and the application process. Tours are available for all of our visitors at 11:15 AM and 2:15 PM. In the event that those times are not convenient, a special tour will be scheduled for you.

May teenagers stay overnight in the dormitories?

Juniors and seniors in high school are welcome to stay up to three nights in the dorms without charge. Freshmen and sophomores may stay as well, if space permits.

Is there a place where youth sponsors stay?

The college maintains several guest rooms for youth sponsors and leaders to use. If you are bringing a youth group to visit ABC, you may stay overnight for only $30. This rate is greatly discounted from the normal rate and is considerably cheaper than hotels in the area.

What happens during a typical overnight visit?

Visiting groups are met by the campus host when they arrive in the evening and are taken to their overnight accommodations (dorm and guest rooms). Breakfast is served at 6:30 AM and the first class begins at 7:00 AM. Visitors may attend classes of their own choosing. After attending the 10:00 AM chapel service, visitors are given a tour of the campus and then are invited to join us for lunch for a minimal cost.

How can I get some specific information about the schedules, prices, location, etc.?

This visitor packet contains suggested class schedules, meal times and prices, travel instructions, and other helpful information for your planning and visit. Feel free to contact us with your questions!
