The Assemblies of God was first established in the Equateur Province in 1980, and since that time nearly 150 churches have been planted. Yet, because of its remote location, there were still only five trained pastors in the entire province in 2006. Provincial leaders told us that they had been waiting 26 years for Bible school training to be made accessible in their province.

Mbandaka Bible School Extension

From its inception in 2006 this Bible school extension has been bursting at the seams. With many successful years of training now behind it and the production of more than 100 graduates, it has proven itself to be a viable force and is fueling the fire of evangelism and church planting in the Equateur Province.

Bible School Construction

Construction on the “Phase 1” Academic Building (3,869 sq.ft.) in Mbandaka was started in 2009. This spacious building now provides two large classrooms, a library and office space. Although the rest of the campus is not yet finished, this building serves as an important base of operations for ongoing training efforts in the Equateur Province.
