The River Bible Institute is a three-year program that was established to equip men and women to be victorious in every area of life. It is our desire to produce men and women of God who are knowledgeable in the Word of God, strong in faith principles, compassionate to the needs of others, and as bold as a lion!

Year One


The River Bible Institute is designed for those who would like to pursue an in-depth study of the Bible and experience the glory of God. This program is not just for the full-time minister, but for all believers who want to know how to apply the Bible to their daily lives.

The River Bible Institute offers a Foundational Year where students will gain foundational values, knowledge, skills, and impartation that will help equip, shape, mold, and expand students to become active participants in God’s work as it relates to their calling.

Year Two Pre-requisite: Successful completion of Year One


The River Bible Institute’s year two and three program was created as a training ground for those who sense a call into the Five-Fold ministry of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers.


Students enrolled in this program will train for ministry, pursue an intense study of the Bible, enhance their present skills, gain a deeper understanding of the things of God, learn how to better relate to people, and obtain invaluable instruction on Faith, the Holy Spirit, Bible Prophecy and other theological areas.

Year Three Pre-requisite: Successful completion of Year One and Year Two


In the third year, in conjunction with offered courses, students will receive hands-on training at The River at Tampa Bay Church by participating in a rotation of all ministry departments to obtain a working knowledge of day-to-day operations in a church and ministry setting.

Students enrolled in this program who successfully complete all required courses will receive a Bachelor of Arts in Ministry.
