Rosedale Bible College COVID-19 Hub
A Statement from President Jeremy Miller concerning Rosedale Bible College’s protocol in response to COVID-19:
March 13, 2020
To our constituents, supporters, alumni and friends,
While we have no confirmed COVID-19 cases near the RBC campus, the State
of Ohio has issued a broad series of directives seeking to protect the people
of Ohio by slowing down the transmission of COVID-19. Among the
directives were the closure of all K-12 public, private, and charter schools
and the limiting of crowd sizes to under 100 people.
In light of these directives and along with numerous colleges and
universities in the state of Ohio, we have decided to suspend all in-person
classes and move our learning online from March 16 to April 13, which is the
conclusion of our regularly scheduled spring break. Students are asked to
return home. We will try to find accommodations outside of the dorms for
those who are unable to do so. We will continue to monitor the effects of
COVID-19 and be in regular contact with students about future plans for
their ongoing education.
As Christ’s body and representatives of His Kingdom here on earth, the
principles guiding our decision were these: seeking the welfare of our
communities and a desire to honor our government as helpful citizens. We
live confidently in Christ without a spirit of fear and with a calm assurance
that God will see his purposes through in this difficult season for our world.
At this time, Choral Camp remains tentatively scheduled, as the organizing committee continues to monitor conditions and guidelines for the state of Ohio and the surrounding region.
Rosedale Bible College is striving to maintain community and educational excellence during the COVID-19 shutdown. Part of achieving those goals is ensuring that we are abiding by relevant local guidelines and providing useful information to our constituency.
