THE CHALLENGE... Scattered between Hawaii and Australia, north and south of the Equator, east and west of the International Dateline are thousands of islands that make up 22 island countries, 30,000 islands with approximately 7 million people.
MEETING THE CHALLENGE... For 42 years, PIBC has taken the lead in carrying the gospel to 20 of the 22 countries in the Pacific Islands. The Lord's church has been planted with 67 congregations and hundreds have been baptized. PIBC trains leaders, preachers, teachers and soul-winning. There continue to be many opportunities. More continues to be done in training native workers for the Lord!
WHY PIBC?... This is a tuition free school of Bible-based instructions designed to prepare Christians, soul-winners, teachers, preachers, elders and deacons to be more effective servants in the Lord's church. Students are able to take courses in the classroom, by DVD or correspondence. Students never have to leave their country to learn. Workshops and campaigns are also carried out with the local congregations.
PLEASE PRAY FOR . . .
That the gospel reaches every island and every person in the Pacific Islands.
To reach more native workers in the congregations scattered throughout the Pacific Islands.
Teaching and preaching in edifying congregations.
Pray, encourage and financially support PIBC.
