Program overview


FIRE Bible Institute is a three-year leadership training institute.
First Year: CULTIVATE INTIMACY WITH GOD THROUGH PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP
Second Year: FAN INTO FLAME THE GIFTS IN YOU.
During their first two years at FBI, students will take four semesters of classes. They will be exposed to multiple settings that will assist in their leadership development including but not limited to the following dynamics:
• Grow deep, deep roots into God’s awesome love for you.
• Enter into a more intimate and mature walk with God.
• Know the Word on a more advanced level.
• Experience authentic, enduring relationships.
• Receive practical tools to live and minister through the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit.
• Be empowered to live a radical, holy life.
• Build solid confidence in your identity as God’s child and a new creation.
• Feel greater release into your calling and destiny.
• Cultivate a radical prayer life.
After completion of the first two years, students earn an Associate in Ministry & Leadership degree.
Third Year: LEADERSHIP IMPARTATION
Students who enroll in our third-year program participate in an internship. The internship program is
an opportunity for students to acquire supervised practical ministry experience and, at the same time,
to make a valuable contribution by serving in a ministry context. Interns will be connected with organizations
or entities that have goals and values consistent with those of FIRE Bible Institute.
Third year students will also be involved in a semester of classes, where they will be able to build on what they
have learned during their first two years of school, and their internship.

FBI Students are able to specialize in the following areas during their tenure:


• Biblical Studies
• Worship/Music
• Missions
• 5-Fold Ministry

Fire Bible institute Distinctives


• Biblical Studies/Academics – We promote and encourage a strong academic culture
that assists in developing students theologically, mentally and doctrinally.
• Mentoring – We deliberately focus on the personal mentoring of every student here at FBI.
Each student is placed in small group settings with seasoned leaders who they spend time with on
a weekly basis in order that through relationship, effective mentoring can and will occur.
• Practical Ministry Experience – Every student is involved in actual ministry settings during
their tenure at FBI. From outreach evangelism, to travel teams, to domestic and international
mission’s trips, to children’s/youth ministry, to the house of prayer, etc., all students will experience
multiple opportunities to engage in various ministry settings as their giftings are developed.
