Trained national church planters, pastors, and workers are
desperately needed. LBU partners with missionaries to start and equip Bible
institutes around the world.
The purpose of INSTEP is to serve foreign missionaries by providing low cost, quality education for the training of nationals for church planting and world evangelism. LBU is able to accomplish this by providing curriculum, textbooks and other education needs with the primary goal of assisting the missionary in establishing Bible Institutes. Partnering with LBU most often gives increased credibility to the Bible institute in the eyes of their local government.
Students of partner institutes who finish their four-year degree program receive a bachelor’s degree from Louisiana Baptist University. A degree from an American university will also add credibility and open doors of ministry to the trained national that would not normally be available to them.
