The professors have experience in pastoral ministry, in foreign and domestic missions, in denominational service, and in theological academia (at least one has served on the faculty of a seminary). The faculty is able to mentor and personally engage students, with most classes having a teacher to student ratio of around 1:15, and some electives having a ratio as low as 1:5. The workload is a strenuous blend of reading and writing, preparing the student for life in vocational ministry. Students learn the art of time management, and married couples develop the skills necessary to balance work, family, and personal devotion time.
In the Fall 2008 semester, Clear Creek hosted a conference entitled "Meeting the Calvinist Challenge," which was designed to explore the theological validity of Calvinistic theology as well as publicly clarify the college's stance on the issue. While Clear Creek does not promote or endorse Calvinism, students who hold to this theological belief are welcome to attend so long as they understand that Calvinism will not be taught in the classroom setting.
