Matigsalug Bible Institute - Mindanao, Philippines
Founded by General Baptists in 1978, the Matigsalug Bible Institute - MBI in Mindanao, Philippines has been training pastors and Christian workers for ministry in the tribal areas of Mindanao. The staff members, students, and families live in community and are growing in their Christian walk.
The purpose of the Matigsalug Bible Institute is to train Christian workers for General Baptist churches in the tribal area. MBI makes available theological training for Christian workers at an entry level for those who have not completed high school. When young men and women enroll at MBI, they are trained not only how to preach, but how to work as well. They are assigned duties on the property such as farming or facilities maintenance to help subsidize their costs.
Many steps have been made to make the school less dependent and more self-sufficient by creating rice farms and tilapia fish farming.
