A calling from God to pioneer a new work often comes as a divinely-sent burden that propels you into action. In other words, God speaks. We move. Kingdom work gets done.

For Pastor Chris Brooks and Evangel Ministries, this burden came when William Tyndale College closed in December 2004, leaving metro Detroit with a gaping vacuum of Christian education. They were inspired to pioneer a ministry that would provide high-quality theological training that was both affordable and accessible.

The result of that inspiration was Detroit Bible Institute (DBI).

First established in Detroit, DBI now resides at its suburban campus−Sterling Heights−right here at Rockpointe Community Church. The goal is to reach even more believers with high-quality biblical teaching.

This class really expanded my horizons. It made me think of things I’d never thought of before. It’s so easy to get caught up in my own busy, little world and forget what’s happening around me…the deeper stuff. I took this class because I wanted to be able to answer why I believe what I believe and not just give some blanket statement. I REALLY wanted to know this myself. I guess I verified my worldview. Thanks again for a great experience!                                               – Michelle W., DBI student
