I welcome you to the family of Jacksonville Bible College. I want to by share a few thoughts and highlights about this tremendous ministry.
The vision of Jacksonville Bible College is broad and vast. Remembering precisely when Lady Janice and I began hearing God speak a special vision of this part of the ministry into our spirits is difficult. It started as a seemingly insignificant spark. The vision grew through the years. By 2007 it had grown into a flame in our minds and spirits. It was during that year that we went into action. Laying aside our personal agendas and walking in faith, we began to see the vision come to pass. This vision became the life blood of Jacksonville Bible College, of which Jacksonville Bible College is a subsidiary of Word of Life.
We have a genuine burden for ministers, pastors, church workers and Christians who desire a higher education. Because of time constraints, inconvenience, or financial difficulties, many cannot attend a typical resident Bible college. Recognizing these restraints, Lady Janice and I realized the need for affordable, resident and nonresident, interdenominational, Bible colleges. That dream seemed so far away. It appeared to be an unreachable goal. Nevertheless, as always, God provided the solution. In an almost overnight intervention from the Lord, our dream became a reality and Jacksonville Bible College was born. We are now officially known as Jacksonville Bible College, Inc. From these beginnings our vision is expanding around the world. We believe God to have resident campuses across the United States and countries around the world.
The Lord’s faithfulness has sent God fearing people who love the gospel to become a part of the staff of this great ministry. I am very thankful to Him for the quality workers He as placed with us as our co-laborers in the early stages of this great work that He has place in our care.
