Heritage Bible Institute (HBI) Develops New Program to Train Tertiary Students and Graduates - HBI is meeting a critical need in the churches of Christ in Ghana: providing Bible training for tertiary students and graduates with plans for ministry and evangelism. The "Young Scholars Bible Training Program" at HBI is responding to this need by hosting students for a 2-week, full-day training in Preparation for Ministry, Evangelism and Discipleship, Hermeneutics and Homiletics, Teaching the Bible, Congregational Development, and Church Leadership among others.
HCC Mentors High School Students in Ghana - In its second edition of the Annual Heritage Career Mentorship Program, HCC staff and students toured five out of the ten regions in Ghana to inspire and guide High School final year students who were preparing to write final exams. The team met with more than 5,000 students in all. Some of these students are expected to enroll at HCC during the October admission season.
HCC Students Compete for Social Change - HCC students participated in the 2018 Global Social Innovation Challenge which took place in San Diego - USA. After two rounds of local competition, one team was selected to represent the school and Ghana at the Global event. Team Water Life is poised to find innovative ways to purify water in Amasaman for safe drinking. This is a contribution to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations. HCC’s Center for Entrepreneurship, Philanthropy and Ethics (CEPE) is dedicated to ensuring that students are able to turn their efforts into reliable businesses.
Prayer Requests/Urgent Needs:
Funds to construct a Multi-purpose Building - per the Bill of Quantities from the architects/engineers this will cost $2.6 million; this building will provide several classrooms, a cafeteria/an auditorium, and offices for faculty. We urgently need this building as the National Accreditation Board will not permit HCC to continue to enroll new students in view of the inadequate facilities.
Scholarships for needy students – especially the 5 students from Village of Hope Orphanage - $5,000 per student per year.
A Pick-Up Truck for our School of Preaching (HBI) which we now operate from 5 different centers around the country with 136 preacher students. The Toyota Pick-up truck costs $39,000 - and it will replace our rickety pick-up truck that we use to transport teachers and students to work with churches in the villages.
