The Program

Clarkston Bible Institute launched July 31, 2017, and graduation is scheduled June 23, 2018. Classses are scheduled to begin again July 30, 2018 and each year thereafter near the beginning of August. Participants from other cities are required to move into Clarkston by the week before. Classroom training will take place between July 30, 2018 and May 21, 2019. June and July are dedicated to ministry experience unless you desire to be a pastor. For those desiring to be pastors, the training will extend into June.

Ample breaks are scheduled during the holidays and throughout the year.
