For I give you sound teaching; do not abandon my instruction (Proverbs 4:2).
Preparing faithful pastors, teachers, youth leaders and children’s workers for lifetimes of ministry is vital for evangelical churches across Russia and her neighboring countries. SGA partners are committed to helping them meet this great need for future generations by sponsoring four evangelical seminaries — Irpen Biblical Seminary and Odessa Theological Seminary in Ukraine; Novosibirsk Biblical-Theological Seminary in Russia; Minsk Theological Seminary in Belarus; and Almaty Bible Institute in Kazakhstan. SGA also sponsors several Bible institute programs and affiliated worship music schools across the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). These schools provide doctrinally sound, biblical training in pastoral ministry, evangelism, music and worship ministries, youth ministry, children’s ministry and Christian education. Full seminary degrees are available as well as diploma programs and correspondence study.
In addition to sponsorship of these quality Christian schools, SGA partners also help provide resources such as scholarships, theological texts and materials, facility assistance and, on occasion, sending gifted Bible teachers from North America to assist Russian faculty in teaching at the seminaries and Bible institutes.
October 16th, 2013We praise and thank the Lord for the news that the SGA-sponsored Irpen Biblical Seminary in Ukraine has reached a record enrollment this fall. According to seminary president Dr. Igor Yaremchuk, a total of 367 students are enrolled—the largest number in the school's 22-year history!
September 23rd, 2013My education at Irpen has been of enormous use to me. I have begun to better understand just who our God is, and to have a deeper understanding of His attributes and nature.
August 22nd, 2013We are thankful to all who have been praying for NBTS through the years.
