It’s been busy here at the Fully Equipped Bible Institute with online summer courses and fall course preparation. We are laser-focused on equipping believers to be the salt and light in a rapidly decaying, darkening world. As salt and light, we can’t remain unengaged or afraid to address controversial issues. As deception grows, are you prepared to provide strong, loving, and deeply biblical responses to difficult topics?
Here in the U.S., conversations have been quite lively as we engage with believers and non-believers alike about controversial social issues. The reversal of Roe v. Wade has elicited strong responses, as did National LTBQ+ Pride Month. The “Hot Box” feature and linked article below may be of help as you articulate biblical responses. It illustrates how we need to go to God’s Word, studying it deeply in its’ linguistic, historical, and cultural contexts, in order to accurately apply it to life today.
We covet your prayers for ongoing discussions with global Christian leaders. We are exploring ways the Fully Equipped Bible Institute can support existing ministries with the Christian education and discipling tools that are urgently needed in under-developed countries. Our spotlight of Pastors Norly and Maryjoy Tuiza illustrates the need. They need an leadership education scholarship and an internet access sponsor. Please be as generous as you can, as there are hundreds of pastors and Christian leaders with the same needs. It is exactly what the Fully Equipped Bible Institute is called to – provide leadership education and practical tools for our brothers and sisters serving in difficult places around the globe.
I hope the resources in this month’s newsletter, and the Fully Equipped Bible Institute provides are a blessing to you as you represent our Savior in a darkening world.

PASTORS NORLY AND MARYJOY
WE NEED $100 USD MONTHLY TO SPONSOR THEM.
COVID hit the Philippines hard. Almost 25% of Filipinos live in poverty. The poverty threshold for a family of five is approx. $240 USD per month.
Pastors Norly and Maryjoy serve in the city of Zamboanga. They would like to further their pastoral education through the Fully Equipped Bible Institute but need an education scholarship and sponsorship of costs to access internet services. Internet access will also benefit their church ministry.
Your donation is tax-deductible. Every dollar counts as we seek to equip pastors and Christian leaders serving in difficult circumstances. Please be as generous as you can. There are hundreds of pastors and Christian leaders who need educational scholarships and internet access.

This is an 8-week online Christian leadership course teaching spiritual aspects of leadership.
Spiritual leadership is not an occupation – it is a calling. God is not looking for charismatic, strong, attractive people – He looks for obedient servants to use. A title does not make a leader.
Spiritual leadership must be directed by the Holy Spirit. It must be steadfast in the face of opposition and unrelenting in the midst of spiritual inertia. Popularity is not leadership. It requires understanding of calling, godly character, and equipped with practical competencies.
Spiritual leadership is moving people on to God’s agenda. This course equips you to do so.
OF CHRISTIAN LEADERSHIP
This online Bible course includes instruction in the practical administrative aspects of Christian leadership. While not every person called into Christian leadership has the gift of administration. Regardless of the gift, being equipped to manage the administrative aspects of Christian leadership is essential to effective stewardship of the ministry we are entrusted with.
This 8-week online Christian leadership course will equip pastors and ministry leaders with the practical tools needed to build and maintain effective churches, organizations, and ministry teams.

“All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,
that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.”

Each month we add new, free Bible study resources to the Fully Equipped Bible Institute website. This month, we have added chapter by chapter, verse by verse study notes for the Gospel of Matthew, chapters 11-28. The notes include historical and cultural context for Matthew’s Gospel. The notes also include highlighted keywords in Greek, with the definitions included to more fully grasp the author’s original meaning.
