Two Hispanic Bible Institutes have recently joined the Global University (AG) system in the past weeks. New Life Assembly's School of Prophets in DeSoto, Texas, and El Lirio de los Valles Bible Institute in Indianapolis, Indiana, are the newest Hispanic members to the Global University family.
"We are excited about our future! We have a good core of students and faculty that are ready and willing to learn and facilitate," said Dr. Vicente Delgado, senior pastor of New Life Assembly and director of School of Prophets Bible Institute. "We see our Bible school extending itself to satellite locations around the Dallas-Fort Worth area and beyond."
Delgado is also superintendent of the Golden Rule Charter Schools in the Dallas area. He currently runs four schools comprised mostly of Hispanic students.
Central Indiana has also welcomed El Lirio de los Valles Bible Institute to the area. The Bible Institute officially launched in Indianapolis with a church-wide launching campaign from September 22 through September 24.
Senior Pastor Obispo Rogers, a Dominican Republic native, envisions a regional Bible Institute in Central Indiana that can equip leaders for ministry to reach the Hispanic community for Christ.
"Global University is thrilled to partner with these local and regional ministries to continue equipping laborers for the harvest," said Dr. Gary L. Seevers, Jr., president of Global University. "We are so excited to welcome the School of Prophets and El Lirio de los Valles to our family of study centers across the U.S."
According to Delgado, the latest U.S. Census confirmed that Hispanics are the largest ethnic group in the country. "The gain in population only means one thing: we need to get to work and evangelize," Delgado said. "We need to see more Hispanic ministers called to ministry to meet the demand and to open new churches."
