Our Story:As a movement we have always had the culture of training, it is one of our major distinctive. Over the year we use to hold annual Summer Institute which was then called NIFES Summer Institute. This used to hold as an in house training of our staff and key student leaders but it has always been our dream to turn it a full-fledged training institute to cater to broader range of needs. This by the grace of God we were able to commence in 2011.We have so far trained over 400 students on Expository Bible Preaching under the NIFES Expository Bible Training Course working in Partnership with Cornhill Training Course since 2008. We have had seasoned Bible Trainers as Faculty since the inception of the NIFES EBTC among which are: Christopher Ash of Proclamation Trust; Alan Purser of Cross Link; Rt Rev Emmanuel Egbunu, Arc Bishop of Lokoja Province and Bishop of Lokoja Diocese, Dr Abbas Sodangi of University of Maiduguri, Gideon Para-Mallam of IFES-EPSA, Prof AbenTersur of Theological College of Northern, Nigeria and several others.
