Our Track Record

Advance International was founded 2007 to provide quality theological training in places where there is little or none available.  We raise the funds for everything needed for our 20 schools in East Asia.  We began a partnership in that year with New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary to offer the seminary’s Pastoral Ministries Certificate at international sites.  Shortly thereafter we began to partner with the International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention who helped determine where this training was needed. We started with two schools in Indonesia.  Since then the Lord has raised up teachers, translators, churches, associations, other non-profits and individuals with the same passion to train international church leaders.  To date we have graduated more than 900 students from 7 different countries.  

In 2021 the Lord has opened more opportunities for Advance to open schools in Africa, Japan, Malaysia and Thailand.  We look forward to being able to get these started as soon as possible. 

We also have our partners schools who have students in Dominican Republic, Haiti, Honduras, Kenya, Namibia, Nicaragua and Tanzania.   

Praise the Lord for all that He has done to lead us through the years!
