School of Leadership Development

Too few churches have any real program for developing leaders or of honing the skills and knowledge of leaders they may have.

The Sunset School of Preaching, now known as the Sunset International Bible Institute, has – for nearly a half-century – sought to train workers in the Kingdom of God. They have now begun offering a one year program for developing spiritual leaders in congregations. If you are in the Lubbock area, it is on campus. Otherwise, there is room for up to 20 congregations to join them in an interactive online broadcast of the two-evening per week studies.

This evening, I received the following announcement concerning this program – and pass it on to you for your interest.


It is with a great deal of joy and gratitude that we share the news that a dream conceived more than three decades ago is finally being realized in the beginning of Sunset School of Biblical Leadership.

This program is designed to encourage and equip current and future congregational leaders in classes offered two evenings per week. Limited space is available on a first-come basis in our Sunset classroom for those living in the Lubbock area, but up to 20
congregations anywhere can register to tune-in live to our interactive broadcast via internet.

A curriculum of 8 courses will be taught by outstanding SIBI faculty members presenting both textual and practical leadership principles and practices. Participants can complete the curriculum and receive a Certificate of Biblical Leadership in one school year, attending two evenings per week, or in two school years, attending one evening per week.

You can get more information and learn how to register for classes or set up an interactive classroom in your congregation at www.sibi.cc or just reply to this email and let us know of your interest.

This school was begun by the legendary Cline Paden who was the leader of the school during my days there as a student from 1965 – ’67. Literally thousands have been taught in this school and its affiliate branches around the world.

I am sure that this program of elder training will be among the very best available anywhere.
