As a global representative of Joshua Nations, we travel extensively to the nations to train, equip and provide resources to national pastors and leaders to plant BIBLE TRAINING CENTERS (BTC) and churches, primarily to those in remote and needy areas who are unable to attend bible college or seminary.
The BTCs are autonomous church based bible schools that offer solid discipleship training through biblical study and practical ministry experience. A BTC is not a church, but an interdenominational BIBLE TRAINING CENTER which emphasizes training men and women in the Word of God so they can grow in Christ, minister God’s word effectively, and be more fruitful in their own lives and the kingdom of God.

Testimonies from students about the BTC:
I Did Not Have Many Words
“I did not have many words to speak before, but now I have words to speak concerning the Word of God. I was empowered and am grounded in the Word so I can preach now.”"
My Life Has Now Changed
“I did not have knowledge of the bible before, but my life has now changed. I found out I have administration and leadership gifts and I can lead people now. And zeal for the lost became very much.”
“Its profound and simple for anyone to understand, and practical. I’m excited knowing that God is going to transform many lives.”
I’m No Longer Discouraged
“The Bible school equipped me so I‘m no longer discouraged for lack of knowledge of the Word of God to minister.”
Now I Know God Has A Plan For My Life
“When I was first born again, I didn’t know that I should do anymore than to just go to church. But now I know God has a plan for my life and I have been inspired to open a fellowship in my community.”
I Didn’t Understand The Word Of God
“I was a pastor’s wife and Christian for 23 years, but I didn’t understand the Word of God. I learned and grew more going through the 1st year of the Joshua Nations bible school than I had in all of my 23 years of being born again. It has equipped me to minister the Word of God and I now encourage all pastor’s wives to go through the school.“
