Summit Bible College is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We have equipped ministers of many backgrounds, nationalities, and callings for work at churches, rehabilitation homes, counseling centers, youth groups, homeless shelters, hospitals, missions, and virtually every area of society that needs hope, love, and comfort. Summit Bible College exists because of God’s grace and the generosity of those sharing our vision. Our goal, as a college, is to influence others of God’s grace, instill in our educational teachings the ability to be an influence anywhere at any time and provide our students with the necessary means to live a life of influence. Your gifts help with scholarship funds, updating technology, maintaining our campus to provide a quality environment, community outreach & ministry, planning and action for future growth, the list goes on.
Invest in a Leader
In order to keep our tuition affordable, Summit Bible College relies on the donations of hundreds of donors around the world. Please consider making a donation towards the future of a young leader. Our Student Sponsorship program enables individuals who would not otherwise have access to the theological training they need, to study at the college for a specific period of time. The cost of full-time study would not be feasible for the majority of our students without the generous financial support of churches and individuals. Your donations help our students to receive much needed training and practical experience, enabling them to engage in mission and ministry with increased effectiveness. If you would like to be a part of this work, your gift is a tax-deductible item, and it will go towards equipping Christian leaders to help those in need. Please send your donations and gifts to the following address:
