When I started Bethel School of Technology, I was excited about this new and exciting space I was taking the church into, but that wasn’t everything. I was thinking about all of the good men, husbands, and fathers I know who are doing everything they can to make ends meet, but still struggling.
Yes, Bethel Tech is a school of Technology, but it’s also a vehicle for transformation in people’s lives.
I recently heard from a Bethel Tech alumnus whose life got turned around for the better. When started at Bethel Tech, he was driving Uber to provide for his young family. Fast forward to his graduation and he got a job that paid $60,000 a year, which was a huge increase for the whole family. Fast forward another year, and he just got a new job that pays $130,000 a year.
Not only is he earning more than he ever did before, but he has meaning in his employment and he’s now able to work from home, spending more time with his family. There are thousands of stories like that, just waiting to be told, and that’s what Bethel Tech means to me.
At Bethel Tech, in 9 months of remote, online learning, you’ll be equipped with the most in demand skills on the planet, for a fraction of the cost of a traditional degree. Not only has Newsweek recognized Bethel Tech as one of the Top Online Coding Schools in the US for the last 2 years, but we’re also giving our students robust spiritual training too. We’re seeing change happen not just on the outside, but on the inside, too.
85% of our students have been getting jobs within 3 months of graduating, and the average starting salary for junior web developers is $66,000 a year.
The future of work is in tech. From the silicon valley startup exploring artificial intelligence to the mom n pop sandwich shop that’s taking online orders, every company is a tech company. The world is changing at a breakneck pace and my school, Bethel School of Technology, is positioning believers to be at the forefront of all that is happening, so they can bring kingdom values into a sphere that impacts so much of the way we live our lives, while also building better lives for themselves and their families.
Right now, there are 1,000,000 unfulfilled tech jobs in the US alone and companies are falling over themselves to hire top talent.
There’s a place for you in tech, and I want to invite you to be a part of it. Not just for you, but for your family, and for the glory of God.
