Each Instructor brings a wealth of experience into the classroom. All Faculty Members are men & women of God, who are well seasoned and experienced in long-term pastoral and traveling ministries in the Body of Christ. All Faculty members are active Team members with Faith Covenant Ministries. They share a unique perspective with students from hearts dedicated to loving the Lord & serving His people.
At FCMBI, our classes stress the practical application of Bible Truth while maintaining high standards of academic excellence. Each class is three (3) credit hours. We offer great flexibility in our study programs. We have four 12-credit ‘Certificates of Achievement’ for Teaching I & II, Leadership, Church Planting, Administration and Pastoral Ministry. FCMBI offers a fully accredited 4-year, 120 credit program to earn a Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Theology degree through International Christian University (See the requirements listed below).
Students may take individual classes of interest or the whole course. There is no minimum requirement for participation. Many local pastors send their lay leaders to FCMBI for one or two classes a year as part of an ongoing discipleship program. Students may apply for a 12 credit Internship and mentoring program or request licensing or ordination after a review of their aptitude and gifting in specific areas of ministry at the sole discretion of the faculty of FCMBI and in conjunction with their local pastor.
