How to establish a Bible College
We are ready to help!
The opportunity to promote the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world has never been greater. Establishing and maintaining a Bible school, an institute or seminary plays a vital role in equipping Christians to advance the gospel of Jesus Christ.
The Bible teaches and encourages believers to study to show yourself approved to God … (2 Timothy 2:15). This requires the example of pastors and church leaders who are systematically studying the word of God, encouraging their congregations to do the same.
How to start a Bible school? What is needed for pastors and church leaders to implement the establishment of a Bible college, seminary, or Institute?
First and foremost, a calling from the Holy Spirit is needed. Often, He will lead church leaders to engage themselves in a structured and systematic study of God’s word through a Bible college or seminary before establishing one in their church.
Beyond experience in the study of the word of God, church leaders should seek and use the experience of an already established Bible Institute.
Christian Union Theological Seminary, Inc. has had the honor of attending churches and other religious organizations in the establishment and maintenance of viable Bible schools throughout the United States and Canada.
