Training in Christian Ministry


Do you desire a high-quality Bible based ministry training to deepen your knowledge of the Bible so you can pour into the lives of others? Do you want your walk with God strengthened as you equip yourself with biblical knowledge and faith? If you are passionate about working in Christian ministry, we have incredible training that will equip you for a lifetime of faithful ministry to God. Our training will equip you whether you want to serve in full-time ministry in a church setting or simply be a faithful member of God’s Kingdom while pursuing any other career. Austin Bible Institute will teach you to study the Bible effectively and apply its truth to your life and to the people and culture around you. We provide rigorous training that will enable God to work in and through you to prepare you for the kind of servant that He wants to use in ministry. We focus on catalyzing life-change within our students and empowering them to grow spiritually wherever they currently are. We create an environment where students can yield to the Holy Spirit to work in them and equip them for what God wants to use them to do in the future.

During this online training, we encourage 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 ministry or 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.”
