A Note from Brian  In Philippians 3:14, Paul says, “I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” Please join us in encouraging the student body to continue pressing on to the end. The Word of God has had such an impact on their lives this year. Our faculty and staff cannot wait to see how they put it into practice as they serve at camp this summer.  Latest News  New York  Missions Conference Highlights!&... ➜ READ MORE

A Note from Brian   It is hard to believe that our students are down to the last full month in the classroom for this school year. Then, it will be on to a tremendous summer of ministry! Having your child as a student this year has been an honor. Our student bodies (Florida and New York) are full of young men and women who will change the world in the name of Jesus Christ. I am reminded of these verses when I think about how God will use this class of students. “Now to him who is... ➜ READ MORE

A Note from Brian  In our Quiet Time, we have recently been in 1 John. Chapter four reminds us we can love because God first loved us. One of the joys of being at the Bible Institute is the relationships students build here. These relationships turn into opportunities to live out 1 John. It has been my privilege to watch students live this out. We pray for and encourage growth in this area, and we would encourage you as parents to do the same. Loving others is not always easy, but it is... ➜ READ MORE
