To Glorify God by Training Christian Leaders to Reach a Multiethnic Urban World for Christ

Merger Updates


The College of Biblical Studies-Houston officially enters into an agreement to pursue merger with Crossroads Bible College

After months of evaluation and due diligence, the CBS-Houston Board of Trustees has agreed to begin pursuing the merger of Crossroads Bible College in Indianapolis, Indiana, subject to the approval of ABHE and SACSCOC accreditation agencies. We believe Crossroads will be a great addition to the CBS-Houston family.

This merger will accomplish the following:

  1. Expand the CBS-Houston reach through the addition of an Indianapolis campus, several regional locations, and online offerings;
  2. Protect the rich heritage of Crossroads while securing a promising future filled with greater opportunities for students.

This is an exciting time! God has graciously provided an opportunity that will help expand the reach of CBS-Houston and Crossroads Bible College. Our combined resources and strengths will result in a stronger, more efficient, more effective collaborative ministry.
