Who we are
Bellevue Master’s Commission has been at the forefront of discipleship for over twenty years. During those years we have had the privilege of mentoring and training hundreds of young adults for the specific calling God has for them. Our mission is to empower generation leaders who are practically, emotionally, and spiritually equipped to lead their generation to Christ. We believe that God has called us to more than a career; He desires for us to be successful in every part of life. For this reason BMC is more than a college; it’s a full-time, hands-on growing experience designed with your future in mind.
Throughout the years BMC has continued to adapt to the needs of our generation while maintaining our foundation on God’s word. Although BMC resembles a traditional bible college in many ways, we are set apart by our unique discipleship format. What makes us different? We start by asking students: What kind of person do you want to be? To help students answer this question, we fill nine months with as many life-changing experiences as possible. We have seen many lives transformed by combining these experiences with God’s voice and personal mentorship.
We ask that you would prayerfully consider BMC as the next step in your life’s journey.
Where it began
The start of MCIN
MCIN began in the ’80s when two men, Carmen Balsamo and Larry Kerychuck wanted to create a way for young Christian men and women to devote one year of their life in complete service to God. They decided that it needed to start with themselves. Setting aside a year of their lives, they began to study the scripture, evangelize, discipline themselves, and keep each other accountable to the things they were learning. They saw that after one year of dedication to the Lord, they had grown an incredible amount.
Deriving the name ‘Master’s Commission’ from the great commission that Jesus gave to his disciples in Matthew 28:18-20, they began their first Master’s Commission program with 12 students at Phoenix First Assembly of God in 1984. Shortly after, the senior pastor of Phoenix First introduced Pastor Lloyd Zeigler to the idea of developing the program. Since then, Master’s Commission has exploded.
Pastor Lloyd Zeigler took the concept of Master’s Commission and transformed it into the nation’s leading discipleship program with over 100 affiliated programs worldwide.
