When we hear the term ‘team building’, instantly we are drawn to the word ‘team’ and then what can be done to help this ‘team’ improve or grow.

Administrative Secretary

“The promise and challenge of rigor  drew me to Breakthrough International Bible University but it was the close relationships and individual attention of professors, especially from Dr. Patrick Njuguna, who became my mentor, that kept me there. The level of scholarship combined with the passion for God and his people prepared me well—not only for pastoring the congregation with which God has blessed me, but also for standing firm in the apostolic tradition in the midst of contemporary challenges to the faith and Scripture.”
