Accreditation and Credit Transfer

Ethnos360 Bible Institute is currently positioning itself towards accreditation. Once we meet the major requirements for accreditation, we will submit an application with TRACS – with whom we hope to attain accreditation.

Why Accreditation And What Does It Mean?

One of our Academic Deans, Scot, discusses the details of our pursuit towards accreditation. One important note, our program will not be changing.  We are committed to academic excellence and the founding purpose of this institute – preparing men and women to take His Word to the very ends of the earth.

Missionary Training

Ethnos360 Bible Institute is designed to build the biblical foundation you need to serve God as a missionary. It’s the first phase of training with Ethnos360 (founded in 1942 as New Tribes Mission). From here, many Ethnos360 Bible Institute graduates go on to the Missionary Training Center, or to our training center in Canada, Emanate. A focus on practical skills and discipleship prepare you to become a member of Ethnos360, and join the team taking the gospel to people groups who have yet to hear.

Credit Transfer

Ethnos360 Bible Institute is still the right start if you want to get other training before serving God as a missionary, or intend to serve Him in other ways. Although Ethnos360 Bible Institute is not accredited, a number of Christian colleges and universities accept our credits.
