Training for Global Missions

If you have a heart for the nations and want to live and travel overseas sharing the gospel, then getting a solid spiritual foundation is key. The purpose of missionary training is to strengthen your weak areas, modify heart conditions, provide problem-solving skills, and cultivate spiritual and emotional maturity. Through our Global Missions program you will learn how to be humble and teachable in another culture, more adaptable and flexible, motivated to work with and empower locals, and above all, strengthen your spiritual life. Taught by experienced teachers and growing alongside like-minded students, you’ll find tools and support to test your calling and pursue the God-given purpose of your life.

During this online training, we encourage our students to be very involved in their local church, making disciples, selecting a personal mentor, mentoring someone else, and completing at least one semester of internship with a mission organization to implement their education.

What Student Are Saying About Our Online Courses

“I feel like I now have the tools to start the journey God has prepared for me. Before, all I knew was that God had laid on my heart to serve people abroad. I had no idea how to accomplish that or how I would specifically serve people. I feel like God has transformed my life with the many different things I have learned. I look forward to seeing how God will keep using this [school] to help transform my life and the lives of others around me.”


“Austin Bible Institute has been an amazing blessing to me. Each of the classes is focused on forming the identity of Christ in the student. In my opinion, that should be the goal of every Christian, especially when one pursues Christian education. I believe that Austin Bible Institute provides an amazing foundation for a life following Jesus. The material is challenging, but amazingly practical. I would recommend this school to anyone desiring a deeper walk with God, regardless of your specific calling.”


“This has been an amazing experience. Not only have I learned so many things, I’ve grown more in my relationship with God than I have in a really long time. At times, I’ve felt pretty inadequate, like I should know these things already, but I’m so thankful that God provided this opportunity to really key things about following Him. These classes have rocked my prayer life! I have never learned a praying technique in my life, and these classes have taught me countless ways to sit down and spend time with God in prayer for hours at a time…now I feel really equipped.”
