The mission of Global Institute of Religious Affairs is to partner with local churches and other groups involved in Christian ministry globally to carry out their Christ given commission to evangelize and disciple all peoples. We exist to assist churches, para-church organizations, and Christian missions by providing quality teaching, curricula in Bible related disciplines to students who desire to know God and to make Him known. This is to be done through providing educational opportunities for enhancing Bible knowledge, spiritual maturity, and ministry skills.
In the January of 2013, Global Institute of Religious Affairs, founders Reginald Thompson and Sheila Thompson, both seasoned Christian educators, partnered with a few congregations to launch Global Institute. Reginald has 18 years of experience as a educator and administrator.
Global Institute offers a biblically centered curriculum with dynamic spiritual fervor and academic excellence Global Institute of Religious Affairs now enjoys partnerships with a number of conservative Pentecostal, catholic, and evangelical churches of various denominations globally. The Global Institute executive board includes business professionals, university professors as well as prominent church and para-church leaders throughout the globe.
Why Global Institute?
Because God wants you to be as prepared as possible for serving Him. The apostle Paul urged his readers and us, Be diligent (study) to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, handling accurately the word of truth” 2 Timothy 2:15. Knowing God more intimately and handling God’s truth accurately are the foremost goals of Faith Bible College.
Many students desiring to study God’s Word on the college level do not have the resources, time, or ability to travel to distant schools to prepare for more effective Christian service. Global Institute not only is located here in Charlotte but many of our classes are taught at off-campus sites throughout the globe so as to be readily and conveniently accessible to those who have limited hours because of their busy work schedules. Our primarily evening format seems to comfortably fit the needs of our diverse student body.
Global Institute offers programs that are ideal for those preparing for:
• Pastoral Ministry
• Local church and para-church ministries
• Missionary work
• Helping others to know God
• Anyone desiring spritual growth
The instruction received at Global Institute is both biblical and gracious. Arrogance, legalism, and petty doctrinal intolerance are destructive to growing in the knowledge of the Holy One, and, as such, will not prosper in an atmosphere of grace.
