The mission

The Johannesburg Bible College (JBC) offers men and women the opportunity to gain a thorough grounding for understanding and teaching the Bible.

JBC offers a year of training in which to:

•Strengthen your faith

•Grow in understanding the Bible

•Grow in your ability to teach and preach God’s word

•Develop your ministry skills

•Apply the Bible to the whole of life

The college was established with the aim of training local church pastors and ministry workers to be effective Bible teachers. There are many preachers and Bible teachers who have never had the opportunity to access good quality Bible training. JBC seeks to equip and inspire Bible teachers across all sections of South African society.

JBC’s Principal

The Revd. Dr. Nat Schluter oversees the courses supported by a staff team of eleven members.  A variety of local and international church leaders with specialist knowledge and experience contribute as guest speakers.


JBC offers its core training, which students attend 4 mornings a week, over the course of a year. The college also offers courses in the evenings as well as daytime courses at its Soweto and Zandspruit campuses. For more information go to JBC’s website at .
