ABC offers practical Pentecostal and scholarly training for people called by God to serve the Church and to reach the spiritually lost of Ethiopia and the Horn of Africa. Our Bachelor of Arts or Master’s degree programs are designed to better equip you to serve as a pastor, teacher, evangelist, prophet, and apostle in your ministry context.
God is pouring out his grace and Spirit in unique ways across Ethiopia. As people are saved and churches are planted, there is a critical need for local pastors to be prepared to shepherd and nurture their people. We are working to translate the Discovery Series into four major languages that will allow us to train leaders, church planters, missionaries, and laity to better know Jesus and to make him known. The languages are Amharic, Oromiffa, Somali, and Tigrinya.
Our 9th diploma site has been opened by Addis Ababa Bible College. It is located in Djibouti to train Ethiopian pastors and lay people who have relocated to this neighboring nation in search of work and opportunity. We pray our training, using the Discovery Series, will serve as a catalyst to inspire the students to proclaim Jesus to the people of the land. The other eight sites use local churches across Ethiopia. In the future, we plan to establish other training sites in strategic locations throughout the Horn of Africa.
Construction of a new Bible College facility is underway in the heart of Addis Ababa. We are thrilled that the Lord is providing resources to see this building go up. The size will allow for enhanced training opportunities. The location affords us the opportunity of evangelizing the thousands of people who live around the campus.
Along with our excellent Ethiopian faculty, we have been privileged to have guests come and invest in our students. One outstanding guest professor is Dr. Byron Klaus, the former President of the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary. He addressed the subject of servant leadership.
Our masters degree program is preparing to enroll its second cohort in 2016. Students in the first cohort have completed seven courses and are currently taking their 8th and 9th courses out of the 14 course (42 credit hour) program. The purpose for graduate studies is to equip our church leaders for greater effectiveness in completing the great commission by making disciples of all.
