Open Bible Schools of Ministry

Open Bible Churches is experiencing a renaissance in the training of a young generation for ministry, recapturing a model of pastor-led schools of ministry that was closely connected with our beginning. Most current education models are expensive and encourage students to acquire loans. However, accumulated debt hinders the ability of many graduates to remain ministry focused and can impede their ability to go wherever God leads. Many education models also require students to take (and pay for) classes unrelated to the student’s field of interest. We are thankful for our official colleges, Inste Bible College and New Hope Christian College, but recognize we also need low-cost, pastor-led, ministry preparation. For these and other reasons Open Bible Churches has certified four schools of ministry that remain purposefully affordable, easily accessible, practical, and intentionally hands-on.

Creekside School of Ministry

(ESV) We take that concept one step further, by equipping the saints for LEADERSHIP, specifically as pastors, church planters, and missionaries. We adhere to Open Bible Christian Center’s motto, “Loving God, Investing in People”, and understand that in order to increase our effectiveness in spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ, we must equip and release leaders who will do so.
