Reaching the Nations through Distance Education!

The mission of EBIC has always been focused on the world and not just on the USA. Elim has strived to: “prepare Christ-centered, Spirit-empowered servant leaders for global ministry and worldwide revival.

What better way to accomplish this mission than via Distance Education?

The Benefits of Distance Education:

  • Significant cost savings — no need to relocate or travel
  • Teaches self-motivation and self-discipline
  • Flexibility in scheduling — allows students to create their own schedule
  • Accommodates diverse learning styles and needs (text, video, discussions)

  • Allows balancing of responsibilities — balancing studies with work, family, church, or other personal commitments
  • Increases accessibility — available to people from remote areas, disabled, etc.

Primary Benefits for International Students:
