West Texas Bible Institute

BiblesIf God has placed a call upon your life to serve Him in ministry I would like to encourage you to consider the West Texas Bible Institute. You will be joining a learning community engaged in developing skills and knowledge for an effective ministry. There are several reasons to begin or continue your education and ministry preparation.

If we take our calling seriously, we have a responsibility to grow in our understanding of God’s Word and our ability to minister in the church. The people we minister to will grow proportionately to our level of growth.

We are called to be a life-long learner (2 Timothy 2:15). The day we stop learning we stop growing.

If we expect to remain relevant in this rapidly changing culture we must continue to refine our skills. Ministering to today’s issues are more complex than it was a generation ago.

Formal classroom and distance education settings hold the learner accountable. Disciplines are learned and maintained.

Continuing your education can open new doors of ministry.

The Bible Institute is designed to meet the needs of busy church leaders. It exists to help you develop the skills, talents and knowledge necessary to be an effective lay leader or minister. The Bible Institute is a great resource for those seeking credentials for the first time or those desiring to upgrade to the next level of credentialing.
