Gowen Bible Institute

Have you ever wanted a Bible School Education but couldn't _________________ (insert reason here). Join us as we Launch GBI this fall, every Thursday night from 6:30-8:00pm. 


Mission of GBI

The mission of GBI is to develop devoted, and distinctive Followers of the Way of Jesus Christ, through Biblical instruction, training, and mentorship. 


We believe that the message of Jesus should not be sold. That we are commanded to make disciples (learners) of the Way of Jesus, so that you may become leaders in the church (ours or others) to become apostles (sent ones) of the Way. These sent ones will inturn help to reach new Dispiples for the Way of the Christ.


AS such there will never be a cost for the classes at GBI. We will provide Teaching & Training at no cost to the learner. Any materials required will be provided at or below our cost, and will be provided regardless of inability to pay.


We desire to purchase  420 acre property about 25 minutes north of the church to establish a retreat center and on those grounds a small bible institue with the desire to train up a Godly generation of missionaries. The dream of the institute is that their would be no cost to the student. That is why this is a big dream, to build a place that will not cost the student and yet be able to provide the needs of the student.


The premise is that any incomes from the retreat areas would be used to off set the cost of the insitute. We are in the early stages of planning this. The first step is to raise the 3 million dollars to aquire the property and place the first buildings on site. 


If you know God is leading you to contribute to this project please send your gift to Gowen Bible Church. Just insert a a note with the memo that it is for the Gowen Bible institue property. We will send you updates as we make progress in this endevour.


We are praying to God that He would provide this in the next year with plans to open in 2015. Pray that God would direct and lead.
