One of the foundations of Fishers of Men Ministries is leadership training, teaching, impartation, and formation. Fishers of Men Ministries Bible Training Center is our marquee program that was created to train and equip our future leaders. Founded in 1987, the Bible Training Center offered only a two year, “Associates degree of Practical Theology”. Since that humble beginning, we have been able to expand and offer our students a 4 year Bachelor’s degree in Theology along with the opportunity to obtain the next level of education in Theology, a “Master’s Degree”. In the future we hope to offer our students the highest level of Theology, “a Doctorate Degree”.
The Bible Training Center’s first class graduated 12 students and with each year we grew. We have had the honor of graduating over the years more than 2,000 students from the Bible Training Center. Hundreds of our graduates are now in full time ministry serving the Lord throughout Haiti as well as many nations in the world. The Bible Training Center is accredited through Jacksonville Theological Seminary and is recognized by the Haitian government. Students pay tuition monthly or annually and some qualify to be the recipient of a scholarship that will cover the costs of tuition for the year. The scholarship was created to honor family members of Pastor Jay, George and Norma Mullins,whose lives were dedicated to the Lord and serving His people. Other students are sponsored by donors that long to see change in the nation of Haiti and believe it starts with raising up a new generation of leaders empowered by the word of God.
As the need for change and great leaders continues to grow, we are determined to train men and women up in the way of the Lord so they can be a part of bringing change to Haiti. If you think you might be interested in sponsoring a student, please contact our stateside office for more information. Together we will take a nation for Jesus!
