Want to sharpen your sword and develop your ministry skills? Then Destiny Bible Institute is the perfect place for you. Learn more about the Bible and leadership from dynamic, Spirit-filled teachers who are committed to your growth and success.
Destiny Bible Institute (DBI) is a Bible institute for adults desiring to study the Bible and prepare for ministry leadership. It began in the heart of Pastor Jim Graff to have a Bible school where adults could be trained, and prepared for ministry leadership in the local church. DBI started its first class in 1995 with 22 students. After 14 years, over 200 students have graduated and are involved in church leadership and ministry. Some of these students have gone on to full-time pastoral ministry. Most of the instructors are also graduates of DBI.
Destiny Bible Institute offers two tracks of study:
- Biblical Certificate: This is a two-year program of 18 courses where you study the Scripture from Genesis to Revelation.
- Masters Certificate: This is a one-year program comprised of nine classes. In these classes you will receive advanced teaching on biblical subjects that will expand your knowledge of Christian living and practical ministry application.
Why should I attend DBI?
Restoration: God's intent for your life is wholeness, fruitfulness, and increase. As you are taught God's word you will experience restoration in your soul. You will learn how to live the life God intended.
Foundation: Divine impartation of the truth will revolutionize your life. You will discover the deep truths of the faith that spiritually mature and successful people treasure.
Preparation: God's purpose for your life is the heartbeat of DBI. Each one of us are here to fulfill a divine assignment. As preparation meets opportunity, destiny begins to be fulfilled.
