Bethany Outreach and Leadership Development (BOLD) develops you as a leader while you engage in a local ministry weekly. In addition to academic excellence, you develop a missional lifestyle before ever stepping onto the foreign field. BOLD allows you to participate in a wide variety of ministries, including service to international communities, inner-city programs, street evangelism, and youth discipleship.
