Diploma In Theology of Missionary Studies

The student will need to complete all of the courses for the Certificate in Theological Studies and the courses offered by Baptist Bible Translators Institute at their location in Bowie, Tx.

Missionary Linguistics and Special Training Program


Hundreds of millions of people live in utter darkness without any portion of the Bible in their language. Most of the un-evangelized people in the world live in areas where no language school exists. Who will reach these lost souls?

Do you feel God leading you to serve on the foreign field? Are you preparing for the rigors of language learning and culture adaptation? Baptist Bible Translators Institute offers a unique nine-month course that will equip a missionary for every aspect of mission work. We do not teach missionaries a language—we teach missionaries how to learn any language.

BBTI prepares missionaries to go anywhere in the world, learn a language, translate the Bible, and plant Baptist churches. BBTI classes cover the following:

Linguistics (language learning skills) 

Culture Learning and Adaptation 

Bible Translation Principles 

Literacy Training 

Teaching English as a Foreign Language

Language learning and culture adaptation can mean the difference between success and failure on the mission field.
