At the Brown Trail School of Preaching we have very strong convictions regarding the truth. They are firmly rooted in the inspired and eternal word of God. The Bible itself is the only complete “statement of belief” to which anyone should cling and we at Brown Trail are committed to teach, uphold, and defend.
Our mission at the West Virginia School of Preaching is to save souls by training men to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. (2 Timothy 2:2) Our capable faculty of preachers and teachers carry out this mission by providing two rigorous years of study which develop the student’s comprehensive understanding of God's Word. In addition to our extensive curriculum, students also receive preaching assignments at area congregations, which give them the experience they need to pursue both missionary and located work after graduation. All aspects of the school’s ministry are overseen by the elders of the Hillview Terrace Church of Christ.
ETSPM opened its doors in February 1971. That means that our Fall 2010 entrants were the 40th full year of classes here. In nearly four decades of teaching, training and preparing men to serve the Lord, hundreds of students have completed our course of study. Those men and their families are serving the Lord’s church around the world in foreign mission works and many local works, both in public preaching and personal evangelism.
It is the desire and intent of this school to send forth men who love the Lord into the fields of labor, and who will always be set for the defense and proclamation of the gospel of Christ. Effort will always be made to conduct this school in a manner worthy of the confidence and support of those who love the truth.
The Southwest School of Bible Studies is a part of the overall work of the Southwest church of Christ in Austin, Texas. Southwest began operations in September 1978 in fulfillment of 2 Timothy 2:2, "And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also." The school operates, therefore, under the direction of the Southwest eldership and under the director whom the elders have appointed. The director has the responsibility of carrying out the educational organization and regular administrative affairs of the school. As our school motto indicates, our purpose as an educational institution is "To Know Jesus, and to Make Him Known," an aspiration we embrace conscientiously.
WBI has a single purpose of preparing God’s people with the Gospel of Christ to reach the whole world one graduate at a time!
