A Welcome Message from Pastor Gary Hamrick

Gary HamrickDear Prospective Student,

Calvary Chapel Bible Institute is a ministry of Cornerstone Chapel. I am excited that we can provide this opportunity for men and women who want an academic atmosphere to prepare them for service and ministry in the Kingdom of God.

The structure of the Institute is a two-year course for all students, with classes that meet during the traditional academic semester.

The teachers of the institute will be pastors and leaders from Cornerstone Chapel. They bring decades of ministry and life experience and equip you in your pursuit of God’s plan for your life.

I hope you will find CCBI both inspiring and challenging and I pray that God will direct you regarding this commitment.

In Christ,
Pastor Gary

Vision Letter from the Director

Jimmy MullenThe decision to enroll in Calvary Chapel Bible Institute is a choice to invest time and energy growing in your walk with the Lord and knowledge of His Word, and being equipped for His work. We hope and believe that your time will be well-spent, as God “rewards those who earnestly seek him” (Hebrews 11:6).

CCBI entails in-depth Bible study and discussion as a group. You will learn from ministry leaders and pastors within the church, and will be exposed to various areas of church service.

The program is a challenging one, but it is a worthwhile pursuit for those seeking a deeper understanding of God’s word and His calling for them in ministry. Some CCBI students use the Biblical foundation afforded by CCBI in full-time church ministry, while others apply it at home, at work, and elsewhere.

May God bless you and make His face shine on you as you seek to know Him better and make Him known wherever He takes you.

In Christ,
Pastor Jimmy
