In 1955, New Tribes Mission’s leaders saw a need for a Bible college that would provide solid Bible knowledge with a clear missions emphasis and equip believers to take the gospel to people who had never heard it. With this in mind, NTM founded New Tribes Bible Institute in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Ten students made up the first class that met in March 1955 in the former Wisconsin Tabernacle in Milwaukee. Today almost 300 students attend classes on two campuses. NTBI continues to provide its students with a solid biblical foundation with a clear missions emphasis and challenges them to consider how they can impact their world for Christ.
