ADVANCE INTERNATIONAL is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization that provides accessible, accredited, practical, theological education of the highest quality possible to international leaders in remote parts of the world.  Our students can complete our 8 courses in two years and receive a Pastoral Ministries Certificate from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. The students are taught by pastors, missionaries and seminary professors from the United States and from other countries who equip and encourage them through short-term teaching assignments that include being gone for only one Sunday.

At present we have over 1,000  students in 25 schools in East Asia in Advance International schools.  In our partner schools we have students in Haiti, Honduras, Indonesia, Kenya, Namibia, Nicaragua and Peru.  Since the beginning of Advance International 681 students have completed their work to get their Pastoral Ministries Certificates.  Praise the Lord for all that He has done to lead us through the years!  

If you would like more information about Advance or are interested in teaching for Advance or have a passion to start a school in a country where you minister please contact our President, Phil Walker, at pwalker@2advance.org or
