Armenia Bible College, a school of Global University, officially launched on October 11, 2014 with 75 Armenian students in 2 locations within the Eurasian country. This training initiative uses Global’s accredited Bachelor of Arts courses that have been translated into Armenian.

“Armenian leaders… are simply looking for the fuel of quality biblical training to allow their light to shine even brighter,” said Dr. Gary Seevers, President of Global University. “Their dedication to send missionaries to these nations is strategic to God’s plan of winning our generation to Jesus. They see themselves as a lighthouse for Christ in a sea of Islam.”

There are currently no other Bible schools in Armenia, despite the fact that the country is the oldest “Christian” nation in the world, making this endeavor a historical one.

Enough of the program has been translated into Armenian that students are enrolling and have begun their studies. Classes will take place in existing Armenian churches and the courses will be delivered on hand-held electronic tablets. Armenia Bible College hopes to train 250 Armenian missionaries by 2020.
