Training For Apostles, Prophets, Pastors, Teachers and Evangelists
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.
Most first degrees usually take about three years to complete. And we see a similar pattern when Jesus trained His disciples.
He spent three years with them, giving them first hand training. Then 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 train and impart to each believer, what they need to carry out their calling.
GBM Academy offers specialized training ranging from the Apostolic and Prophetic down to Pastors, Teachers and Evangelists.
How To Study With Us
You may want to study only certain subjects without qualifying for a degree. Each subject in the schools is available as a separate course, including all materials and projects. You may purchase any of the courses up front and study at your leisure.

This option does not include personal mentorship, and the projects submitted will only be marked on completion of the course. Students who wish to also have mentorship and additional input should state so in their student application and ministry evaluation supplement.
On completion of a course subject, the student will be given credits towards a full degree. On completion of all the necessary subjects, they may qualify for a degree.
School Degree Courses Available
(for Apostolic and Prophetic Ministry Level and Office Level)
Find All Fivefold Ministry on GBM Courses
(for any Fivefold Leader, including Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers)
Each School contains different modules of study, which will qualify you to receive a certificate at different levels.
BMin Degree – The Bachelor of Ministry
MMin Degree – The Master of Ministry
No student will be allowed to take a higher degree course without having completed the lower level of study. So you must do the Bachelors course first before starting the Masters course.
Graduation and Certification
(Please note: since COVID 19 we could no longer offer graduation in a live setting format. Since there are still restrictions due to COVID, the following does not apply at this moment.)
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. We have set our own standard to cover all Branch Ministries or Affiliate Ministries of Global Business Ministries International.
Anyone wishing to set up their own school as a Branch of GBM Academy will need to become a full member of Global Business Ministries International.
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.
