Bible Colleges

Evangelical Brotherhood Church (Inc) in Papua New Guinea has seen the great need in the spiritual development of the people in this nation. People are lost in darkness. Souls are dying without the knowledge of Truth. Having seen this great need, we took the initiative to train and equip young Christians to become pastors so they can take part in evangelizing people to help further the growth of Christians towards spiritual maturity.

It was then extended to 6-Mile, Lae Morobe Province in 1965 and is still existing today. A few 100 pastors have been produced after 50 years. Some of this pastors are actively invloved in the ministry today.
