Followers of Jesus around the globe are preparing for the holiest week of our Christian calendar. We prayerfully make arrangements to retrace the footsteps of Jesus during His final week on earth. From His triumphal entry on Palm Sunday, to exiting the city with a heavy wooden cross on his bloodied back, his excruciating crucifixion, and triumphant resurrection, we gratefully anticipate Holy Week and its’ culmination in the glorious celebration of the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! Join with us and Christians around the globe as we press into God’s Word and His presence during this most sacred season of our faith. I invite you to download the complimentary Holy Week Journey devotional by Dr. Stephen Isaac, and trust it will deepen your understanding of our Lord’s great love for us as expressed through His ultimate sacrifice on the cross.
For centuries Palm Sunday has signaled the beginning of the Christian Holy Week for believers around the world – naturally this week coincides with the Jewish Passover. For Christians, Palm Sunday commemorates the triumphant entry of Jesus into Jerusalem on the first day of the Passover, and Holy Week leads us through the circumstances, events, and movements of Jesus’ final earthly footsteps. It is one of our most illuminating and gratifying seasons as we worship, observe, and celebrate the triumph, the sorrow, the suffering, the silence, and finally the power of the risen Christ!
After we join with fellow believers around the globe to celebrate the resurrection of our King, we move forward, fully embracing His instructions: “GO and make disciples…” (Matt. 28:19). To equip us, He empowered us, “…you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses…” (Acts 1:8), and gave us the mandate to “Go and proclaim the Gospel…” (Mark 16:15) We will enter into a time of prayer and preparation for Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit filled the disciples with power to be His witnesses to the end of the earth!
The Fully Equipped Bible Institute is fully committed to making disciples around the world. We will be joining with the World Evangelical Alliance to participate in a global move of prayer and evangelism called the GO Movement! We will participate in training Christians to share the Gospel personally, equipping believers to become multiplying disciples, and engaging in prayer for God’s Word to go forth in power! You are invited to join us in this global move of God to fulfill the Great Commission of taking the Gospel to the ends of the earth! If you would like more information on how to get involved, available training and promotional tools, etc., please e-mail US or visit the GO Movement website.
We will be traveling to Zimbabwe in May to attend a pastors’ conference, teach at Celebration College, and minister at various churches in Zimbabwe at the gracious invitation of Celebration Churches International. We believe our time spent in Zimbabwe will be a catalyst for serving and supporting Christian pastors and leaders in Africa and beyond with high quality Christian education to fully equip them for flourishing ministry.
We are asking for your prayer covering and financial support if you are able. All dollars not spent on travel and lodging help us expand Christian educational opportunities to pastors and Christian leaders who serve in difficult and dangerous places. CLICK HERE if you are able to help cover ministry costs for this outreach to Zimbabwe. Don’t forget, all donations are tax deductible!
May our Lord bless and keep you, make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you and those in your care!

We provide formal biblical education for pastors and Christian leaders serving in difficult and dangerous places. Many of these selfless leaders do not have the financial means to access formal biblical training, which is viewed as the greatest need of the global church by the World Evangelical Alliance. As God leads, please consider investing in fully equipping them for fruitful ministry through an academic scholarship. Just $75 per month funds a scholarship. Every dollar counts, and no gift is too small. The Fully Equipped Bible Institute is an IRS registered 501(c)3, and we will provide you with a thank you letter that can be used for tax purposes.
