What is the Accelerated Baptist Missions Institute?

The Accelerated Baptist Missions Institute is unique in that it requires all of its students to remain in their own local church while they are preparing for ministry.  The Institute, founded by Pastor Daniel Haifley and Pastor Chris Staub, was established to help local churches train their own people. Model schools have been planted at the Silvery Lane Baptist Church in Dearborn Heights, Michigan, and at Maranatha Baptist Church in Mattoon, Illinois. The goal of ABMI is to establish as many institutes as possible in local churches around the world to accomplish the task of the Great Commission.  Our leadership has already been involved in the starting of several colleges in different countries.

Our Passion

This generation must preach the Gospel to everyone in this generation.  That is our commission.  We strongly believe that an accelerated missionary training institute in local churches will help meet the need.  These accelerated missionary training institutes must be started in churches all across America.  A local church is designed to teach these people and send them into ministry.  The local church was the method chosen by God before the foundation of the world (Ephesians 3) to accomplish the task of preaching the Gospel to every creature.  The local church is the biblical training institute for the next generation. 

Our Goal

Our goal is not to help you grow your church or even your ministry.  Our goal is to preach the Gospel to every creature.  That is the commission given to the church.  It can be accomplished or it would not have been asked of us.  We want to help churches re-focus on that which is important - not the building of facilities or the comparing of ourselves among ourselves - but the preaching of the cross to the world.
