Raising the Fivefold Ministry to a New Level

No matter what we do in life, we have to qualify first, and this often means doing some study. When you come to prepare for the ministry it is no different.

And just as most first degrees usually take about three years to complete, so also we see a similar pattern when Jesus trained His disciples.

He spent three years with them, giving them first hand training before He could send them out into the world to fulfill their calling. 

Training is Our Mandate

The Lord began preparing us some years ago to train God's leaders. Now we stand as Apostolic Trainers, ready to both train and impart to each believer, what they need to carry out their calling.

The GBM Academy offers specialized training for each member of the Fivefold Ministry, and then extra training for those who are also called to be Fivefold Entrepreneurs. 

You Could Study Live or Online

We are resident in South Africa, where we are able to offer both live training and online training.

So if you live in Southern Africa near the Johannesburg or Pretoria area, you could attend live training over weekends. But no matter where you are in the world, you can get a front seat via the internet.

The marvels of modern technology now allow us to do some wonderful things that we could not do before. The internet has opened up a wonderful world of opportunities.

How To Study With Us

You will need to first become a free member of GBMI by completing a questionnaire that tells us enough about you to enable us to give you what suits you best. Once you login as a member, you may apply to be a student of GBM Academy.

But before you will be accepted as a student you will need to also complete an evaluation online which will show us where your calling and ministry orientation lie. 

If you are accepted as a student with us, you will be given the first course free. This includes access to all the course materials and lessons online, but not the download of the textbook. 

The free course is entitled Launching Your Ministry, and will enable us to assess your calling fully and recommend the best study course for you to follow. 

You may shortcut this process and choose any courses you wish to study, in which case we will assume you do not need our help to be trained for your calling. We will then not offer any form of personal ministry or mentorship, but leave you to take your own direction. 

You may purchase any number of courses you desire and complete them for qualification of a certificate or degree. Each course contains both lecture materials and study projects to enable you to fully grasp the materials. 

On satisfactory completion of the necessary subjects, you will be offered a formal qualification in one of our degree programs and may obtain a certificate for this.

There will also be an annual graduation ceremony which students may attend to receive their degree certificates in a live meeting. 

Partners of GBMI

If you are a contributing partner of Global Business Ministries International, the cost of course materials will be waived and you may read any of the materials in any of our courses free. This could cost you as little as USD$25.00 or ZAR300.00 per month. 

For more information on partnership, check our partner website here:

If you are unable to afford the costs of studying with us, you may apply for a reduction in costs or a bursary for your studies with us. This is only available to those who have taken the first free course, so that we are able to assess your circumstances and commitment to be trained for the work of the Lord.

Choice of Study Curriculum

If we give you a bursary, we reserve the right to choose your course curriculum and study order. However, if you pay for the courses, either by purchasing a course or joining as a contributing partner of GBMI, in which you contribute at least $50.00 or R600.00 per month, you may choose your own curriculum.

Once you have been enrolled in a course you will get full access to both the lecture materials and the student projects. Once you have completed all the projects, you will be notified by us that you have completed and qualified in that course. This course may then be used as a credit towards one of our degree qualifications. 

Becoming a GBM Academy Student will enable you to develop all of your skills in Ministry, Business and the Arts, and use them to make an impact on this world.

Degrees and Certificates Available

Each School contains different modules of study, which will qualify the successful student to receive certification and qualification at different levels.

BMin Degree - The Bachelor of Ministry

MMin Degree - The Master of Ministry

DMin Degree - The Doctor of Ministry 

Please Note

No student will be permitted to take a higher degree course without having completed the lower level of study. So you must do the Bachelors course first before commencing the Masters course.

The Doctoral course will only be offered to students who have completed the necessary courses to qualify. 

Graduation and Certification

Those who complete the requirements for a degree will be invited to attend an official graduation ceremony (held at least once per year in Gauteng, South Africa).

Graduation gowns will be hired for the occasion and the leaders of GBMI and GBM Academy will be present to give personal ministry and direction to graduates.

If you are unable to attend graduation, you will be able to receive your Degree Certificate via mail. There will be a cost to cover printing, shipping and handling.

Accreditation and Affiliation

Global Business Ministries International is not subject to accreditation from worldly sources such as Government, and has set a standard which will be required by all who wish to become Branch Ministries or Affiliate Ministries of Global Business Ministries International, both in South Africa and abroad.

Anyone wishing to set up their own schools as a Branch of GBM Academy will be required to become a full member of Global Business Ministries International and comply with the requirements of membership as set forth in the constitution and bylaws of GBMI.

Those who wish to work alongside GBMI as Affiliate Ministries will need to apply for accreditation with GBM International and hold qualifications with GBM Academy. Their students will then be recognized by all churches operating under the banner of Global Business Ministries International.

The Practice of Business

If You Thought You Were Not Capable of Selling

Think Again! You Will Learn To Not Only Sell, But Do It Well

The practice of business involves the exchange of products for money. This means that the process of selling is central to all business activity.

Selling is probably the one part of business that scares most people away. Yet it is a basic function of human life, and something that we all do each day without realizing it.

Les D. Crause takes away the mystery and fear of selling by explaining the simple principles that will help you to sell easily without fear.

Use Selling The Right Way, And Your Business Will Reach A New Level It Has Never Been Before
