About Us


A mission is a task that someone is sent to do or accomplish. There is a duty that goes with the mission and there is a calling that connects the duty with the task. It is the mission of FBCTI to help the students discover the task that they are called to accomplish and train them how to connect the task and the duty. Our mission is to give them a platform through the training we will provide for them to accomplish their own mission successfully.

FBCTI’s greatest mission is to see the captives set free!


Our main goal is to honor God first and foremost. We are about teaching and training biblical dynamics and how to use them to help yourself and others. We do not teach humanistic or new age philosophies, we are a bible based institute and use the word of God and His principals to be our ultimate healer. The word of God is the life giving manual on how we are suppose to not only live our lives but how we are to treat others. His word says His people parish for lack of knowledge and our goal is to help as many as we can to not parish but flourish day in and day out with the ultimate knowledge.


We all live in a time space continuum. In other words, we will be a day older when we wake up in the morning. We are locked into time and the only way to move forward is to have a vision to where we are headed. Otherwise, we would be locked into time and live life backwards in our memory. We must have a place where we are headed. We at FBCTI have one vision and that is to train up disciples who have a call to see the broken and hurting made whole by the relentless love of Jesus Christ.

Let us live in our vision not our memory.


FBCTI is recognized ALL OVER THE GLOBE as they have trained, certified and sent out into the byways and highways over 21,000 chaplains and counselors. So many students have had tremendous impact in their callings and they are living life by design and not by default. FBCTI has ministries started by their students in 32 states and over 14 foreign countries. God does not call the equipped, HE equips the called!

He was on that horrible crime scene three days after the towers fell and trained/counseled there for a year to the day. The result was a loss of health through cancer from what he breathed and PTSD from what he saw and experienced there.
