"The PACE program at Central Baptist College offers more than a quality education. The Dean, the professors, and the PACE staff know each student by name. When I am at CBC, I feel like part of a community and not just another face in the crowd. After a long and tiring work day, I actually look forward to going to class one night a week to learn something new. Small class sizes allow each student close contact with the professors. In short, CBC's PACE program provides me an opportunity to learn in an environment that respects the demands placed on me as a working professional. Attending CBC's PACE program has been a rewarding, life-changing experience for me."
"During my 7th grade year in high school, CBC was where I decided I wanted to go to college. I got my associate degree from Central Baptist in 1982, got married, had children and went on with my life. My youngest son had the opportunity to play basketball at CBC so I really pushed him to do that. I knew that I wanted him in the atmosphere that I had been in when I was there. The professors care about how students do in class, and students get to pray and talk about blessings that occur in their lives. I wanted that for him. I didn't have to worry about what he was being taught. I decided to go back and get my Bachelor of Science degree twenty-five years AFTER I got my AA, and I was so excited that CBC offered the PACE program where I could do that. The PACE program was also a blessing to me. It was fast and furious but the instructors still cared about the students, and they still prayed and talked about God in class. CBC is a wonderful spiritual place to continue a person's education.
"Central Baptist College offered me a degree that I could complete around my working schedule, and gave me the skills I needed for the ministry. The PACE degree programs have relevant Professors, challenging subjects, and great discussion times with your peers. If you want to grow spiritually, become more knowledgeable in the Scriptures, or just need to brush up on certain subjects then CBC is for you. They will not disappoint!"
"The Organizational Management Program at CBC is managed extremely well from all aspects. The staff members that coordinate classes are willing to cooperate with working professionals to determine a way to finish college. Central Baptist College provided me with an education that I was able to apply in the workplace immediately. I would recommend CBC as a first choice to any working professional seeking to complete an education."
“PACE was exactly what I needed. I had attended college for 4 years right after high school, but I had changed my major so many times, that I didn’t have any kind of a degree to show for all the time I had invested. About 10 years later, after marrying and starting a family, I decided it was time to go back to school and complete my degree…any degree. I attended classes in a traditional college setting for one semester and found out that was not going to fit with my work and family schedule. I saw an advertisement in the paper for CBC’s PACE Program and decided it was just what I was looking for. I could continue to work full time and have time for family. I enrolled in the spring of 2002 and completed my Bachelor of Science degree in Management Information Systems in May 2004. I was so proud to have finally reached my goal of earning a degree. In February 2005, I began working at CBC in the registrar’s office. My position, PACE Coordinator for the Registrar, was created because of the tremendous growth of PACE. I am now using my experience as a PACE student to aid other students in reaching the goal of completing their degree through the PACE Program. Watching these students achieve their goals, just as I did, brings me great joy. I’m proud to be a part of PACE and Central Baptist College.”
"The PACE program provided me a great opportunity to complete my Bachelor degree and keep my fulltime job. The staff was very helpful in making this a great experience; they pointed me in the right direction to finish my degree. I feel I was provided, not only a great education intellectually but also spiritually. “This was a great opportunity at a great place."

"I did not know much about the Pace program and kind of stumbled on it trying to help locate a place where my husband could complete his degree. Since that time he has almost completed a Bachelors of Science in Ministry and Leadership. Pace is awesome in every way i.e. schedules, locations, professors, office staff, loan assistance etc. I appreciate the Pace program and staff members who are very professional and ensures that they meet the request and needs of their students. Pace is definitely preparing my husband to meet the demands of today’s job market. I am so excited because he loves the program and consistently comments on how much he is learning. If anyone is looking for a great group and college setting of awesome personnel to work for and with..Pace through Central Baptist College in Conway with local campuses is highly recommended as the place for you."
The Pace Program at Camp Robinson has helped to enrich my ministry and it has afforded me the opportunity to pursue a degree and receive the formal training in ministry that I've always wanted. As a busy Pastor, the Pace Program perfectly fits my time restraints. The instructors focus on perfecting students for a life of ministry.
