Mini Bible College

The aim of this programme is to deliver a new generation of leaders and churches that have been trained to disciple new believers more effectively. Christianity in Africa is in need of believers who are completely transformed by Christ. Through these believers, communities can be transformed. New churches and believers should be able to continue with this multiplication discipleship process with little help or influence from others.

Christian leaders should be developed to become fathers in the faith that can, in turn, guide children and young men and women in the faith. Thus, this programme will equip and resource local leaders to take the responsibility to evangelize and transform their own communities for Christ. By this, a sustainable and growing Christianity in Africa will be ensured.

The MBC, a systematic Bible curriculum, is primarily distributed through the work of International Cooperating Ministries (ICM). Developed by Pastor Dick Woodward, MBC consists of more than 215 individual audio lessons, supported by printed booklets. The teachings include an entire survey of the Old and New Testaments, and in-depth studies of the Sermon on the Mount and Marriage and Family.  Taken together, these lessons serve as the core curriculum for nurturing believers and assisting the spiritual growth of the church worldwide through ICM.

Basic Structure of the MBC Programme

The Mini Bible College serves as the core curriculum for nurturing believers and assisting the spiritual growth of the Church worldwide. This teaching provides a devotional approach to the scriptures and is easily understood by those with little education and those who are very educated.

MBC is delivered through MBC audio unit and USB card readers with a memory card.

Minimum Requirements

The Apostle Paul told Timothy, his son in the faith:  “Timothy, my dear son, be strong through the grace that God gives you in Christ Jesus. You have heard me teach things that have been confirmed by many reliable witnesses. Now teach these truths to other trustworthy people who will be able to pass them on to others.  Endure suffering along with me, as a good soldier of Christ Jesus.

(2 Timothy 2:1-3 NLT).

  • MBC wants to give all students this same word of encouragement as they begin to study the Word by asking the following questions:
  • What does the Word of God say?
  • What does this passage mean?
  • What does this passage mean to me? How can I apply God’s eternal principles to my life today?
  • The students will grow in the knowledge of God and in their relationship with His Son, Christ Jesus and understand His plan for the world as they study Genesis through Revelation.
