Protect Yourself!

by Hugh Plappert (3/15/2012)


Know a few key facts about college and make the right decision about your future. Cautiously consider your college choice or risk an 84% chance of missing your goal.

The following chart shows what will happen with a sample of 100 College Freshmen.

100-One hundred students enroll in a Liberal Arts College this fall.

56-Almost one-half of them will drop out leaving only 56 students enrolled. (1) After all the grants, scholarships, and student loans, debt is still one of the top 5 reasons for drop out. (2)

31-Upon graduating 56% or 31 of the qualified graduates will find a job. (3)

16-Of those who find a job, only half of them will be employed in a vocation that requires a Bachelor's Degree. (3)

($27,000)-Most students that are privileged to have a job requiring a Bachelor's Degree will have an average debt of $27,000. (4) If this were a car loan the monthly payment would be $485.15 for 5 years. If you are a married couple, that could be $970.30 a month. It does not help that the cost of attending college has gone up over 440% in the last 25 years. (5)


There are options for you to consider.

Apostolic Bible Institute is pledging to prepare young people for the ministry without burdening them with debt or ignoring their need for valuable job skills. We have designed our program to include the following:

1.) Learn to be a Servant Leader and become eligible to apply for a General License with the United Pentecostal Church International.

2.) Have access to top leaders in various roles through out the United Pentecostal Church International from the friendships you will develop with our Faculty and Adjunct Faculty.

3.) Join the largest alumni network in the Oneness Apostolic movement with over 4,000 members.

4.) Graduate debt free with a Bachelor Degree.

5.) Gain valuable experiences working your way through school in a skill-developing job. See our free resource at www.Jobs4ABI.com. This will improve your annual income possibilities by $19,500 over the average high school graduate. (6)

6.) We have an relationship with a local College that will allow you to use your ABI Bachelor Degree as a prerequisite towards a selection of Graduate Degree Programs.

Pray. Get direction. Choose ABI. Do not waste four years!
