Why Bible schools? That’s easy. We firmly believe in Joel’s ancient prophecy and promise reiterated on the birthday of the apostolic church: “And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh” (Acts 2:17). The future is bright. The greatest days of the apostolic movement are right ahead of us. Bible schools prepare passionately for the future!
Countries will be turned upside right with apostolic revival. Cities will be changed. Communities will be impacted. Revival will come. Church growth will happen. All that—and so much more—calls out for multiplication. Train workers. How else would we reasonably prepare for the monstrous end-time harvest?
Within Global Missions, Bible school training remains one of the pivotal, fundamental things we do. With around three hundred schools outside of North America we are bent on facilitating the global harvest and worldwide revival. Our strongest nations are places where we have the strongest Bible school programs. One such nation has over eighty schools. What next? Open more Bible schools. Train more laborers. Develop more discipleship and mentoring methods. Equip more Bible school instructors. We are aggressively active and adamant about it. Expect no less with seven billion people on the planet still waiting for trained harvesters. The future demands it now!
