What an exciting time it is at Crossway Bible Institute, the Lord is doing a great and mighty thing in our midst and you get to be a part of it. A dream is becoming reality right before our eyes. A vision was placed in my heart back in 2007 to start a Bible Institute for men and women who need an affordable place where they can pursue God’s calling on their life. This vision not only included affordability but also individuality.
In September 2019 CBI launched its first on campus pilot class. This was a 6-week course on basic bible doctrine. The Lord really blessed us as we had over 20 students as well as six instructors and six staff members. This pilot class was to be the first of three 6-week classes with the other two launching in January and March of 2020. These three classes were set to pave the way for the associate program set to begin in the fall of 2020.
However, the year 2020 brought with it new challenges with the biggest challenge being the covid-19 virus. With the threat of covid-19 looming large over the country many businesses, and schools were forced to shut down. We here at CBI knew that the Lord had called us to this work, and we were not going to let this obstacle stop us before we really got going. As we began to pray and seek the Lord’s guidance it became clear that CBI would become a Correspondence school. This transition has allowed us to expand in different areas one of which is our instructor participation. We are now adding instructors from several different states. These qualified teachers bring with them new energy and insight as well as expertise in different areas. Also being a virtual bible institute allows us to keep the cost of tuition to a minimum without sacrificing the quality of education one would receive at CBI.
Here you will find a place that will partner with you and instructors who will help tailor your education to who you are, while holding fast to the basic and foundational truths of Christianity as taught in the scriptures.
We are excited to announce that our very first virtual pilot class is set to launch November 1, 2020. This 4-week class is part of an 8-week course title:” one-on-one evangelism”. This course will be taught by Rev. Lee Moseley the author of the one-on-one evangelism series. The course will pave the way for 2021 when Crossway Bible Institute will launch its degree program.
As the president and director of CBI it is my belief that Christians have spent too much time and energy erecting walls of divisions among the body of Christ and building our own kingdoms. CBI is committed to seeking first the kingdom of God and His righteousness. I am honored that you have decided to embark on this journey with us as we seek to build a Bible Institute that would be glorifying to the name of our Lord, and a place that will help Christians see the church as one body serving one Lord for one purpose.
I look forward to seeing you in class as we study together to show ourselves approved unto God.
Buddy Hogan, President
Crossway Bible Institute
