Welcome to The Master's Academy International

As churches around the world strive to obey the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20), they are confronted with the Great Dilemma: “How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher?” – Romans 10:14 read more

The Shepherd’s Bible College

The Shepherd’s Bible College (TSBC) in Hastings, New Zealand is devoted to the training of believers with a special emphasis on identifying and training qualified men to lead God’s church. TSBC courses are designed to cultivate spiritual maturity in every student as they devote themselves to the Holy Scriptures. Currently, TSBC offers a one-year, full-time curriculum aimed at instilling in church members and lay leaders a love for God’s Word and for ministry in the local church.

These courses, offered on TSBC’s campus at Riverbend Bible Church, ground students in subjects such as Theology, Hermeneutics, and Bible Survey, in addition to providing opportunities for practical application through discipleship labs and internships in the local church. In early 2015, TSBC will be adding a pastoral training track which will equip church leaders with the skills to accurately and effectively exposit God’s Word and shepherd His flock.

Recently, TSBC has received invitations to offer their training in modular format to churches around the country. In response to these invitations, TSBC has launched an initiative to take their training to four strategic cities throughout New Zealand.

Between April and November, TSBC will be spanning the majority of the country offering seven different modules in the cities of Rotorua, Christchurch, Auckland, and Tauranga. Already there are 55 students enrolled in these modules, and TSBC is still taking interested students. The cost of travelling to these various churches is $6,000, and partners are needed to join in this exciting effort.

A generous donor has offered to match (up to $3,000) any gifts made toward this need.

NZ-Testimony-JoshZoharPictured are Josh Powell, Zohar Gonen, and Reuben Pickering—graduates of The Shepherd’s Bible College. In 2012, God placed each of these men in vital ministry positions. Josh is serving as Youth Pastor at Auckland Bible Church—a suburban church with tremendous gospel outreach potential in the largest city in New Zealand. Zohar is serving as an evangelist to thousands of Jewish tourists to New Zealand each year in Oamaru. Reuben is currently pursuing further theological studies at The Master’s Seminary in Los Angeles and plans to return to pastoral ministry in New Zealand in 2014. These are three faithful men whom the Lord is using in mighty ways.

What I heard here opened my eyes more to see the need for people who teach how to study and teach the truth. I want to deepen my studying and my understanding and do better with what the Lord gave me to do in my church.
