Bacolod Christian College of Negros

The Bacolod Christian College of Negros, Inc., formerly known as the Bacolod Christian Center or BCC is the first Baptist pre-school established in Bacolod City, Negros Occidental, Philippines. It was founded on February 23, 1954 as a community center and pioneer Baptist pre-school.

History

Bacolod Christian Center was founded in response to a need for a Christian outreach in the city and the province. Initially, the BCC offered a kindergarten for small children, a game room, a basketball court, a small library, and a Bible class. Various other special classes were offered when there was a need. The classes increased in size and because of the need for workers in the Kasapulanan, the Christian Workers Training School (CWTS) gradually came into being. It was established for the sole purpose of training Christian workers. This eventually was merged with Convention Baptist Institute (CBI) and later became known as Convention Baptist Bible College (CBBC).

After Rev. Taylor and Catherine Neely left in 1957, Miss Helen Markos (now Mrs. Alfredo Cordero) took over in March 1957 as Executive Director. It was under her leadership that the Center’s program was molded to form the basis for future advancement. After Miss Markos, Rev. Glenn Boice took over but later focused his attention to the Convention Bible Institute (CBI).

In 1959, Rev. Harold Blatt became the acting Director; Miss Henrietta Agustin (now Mrs. Henrietta A. Nolido) joined the staff as his assistant. Upon the return of Rev. and Mrs. Blatt and his family to the United States in 1962, Mrs. Nolido was then appointed as Executive Director, a position she held until 1995.

Meanwhile, BCC was administered by an Officer-In-Charge (OIC) in the person of Racquel Alejo until Pastor Edwin Madlangbayan was appointed Executive Director in May 1996 until December 18, 2004. In SY 1994-1995, BCC commenced its elementary school, and seven years later its secondary education department was opened. In March 2004, BCC graduated its first batch of high school students.

In February 15, 2006, after a unanimous resolution passed by the Board of Trustees, Rev. Dr. Sergio A. Rojo Jr. was appointed as the new Executive Director of Bacolod Christian Center.

In March 2007, after the approval by the Securities and Exchange Commission, Bacolod Christian Center changed its name to Bacolod Christian College of Negros, Inc.

Today, the Bacolod Christian College of Negros, Inc. has established its name in the field of education. It offers pre-elementary, elementary, and high school education. In SY 2007–2008, the student population reached 1,090.
