Our Story

95% of pastors globally have never received any formal biblical education to equip them for ministry.  The barriers to biblical education are finances and technology.

As the world grows darker, we sense the urgency to equip faithful pastors and Christian leaders who are serving in difficult and dangerous places.  When pastors are “fully equipped for every good work”, they have the sound theological doctrine and practical ministry skills to strengthen believers that need biblical teaching and training.  As pastors are strengthened, the Church globally will be stronger.

50,000 new believers are coming to faith every day.  New pastors and Christian leaders are urgently needed to disciple the new believers, helping them to grow into strong Christians.

The Fully Equipped Bible Institute is highly focused on meeting this urgent need.  We are biblically equipping Christian pastors, leaders,  and serious followers of Jesus to obediently fulfill the call of Christ on their lives.

Our vision is to remove the obstacles of geography, finance, and technology so that believers have the access to Bible training that empowers them to effectively fulfill their calling to go into the world to make disciples.
