Fermin and Claudia Garcia

The Board of Inste Bible College has exciting news. First, the Board decided to officially change the name of “Inste Bible College” to “Inste Global Bible College.” Since its inception, INSTE’s focus has always been global, and they wanted to reflect this core value in their name. They will not require countries outside the U.S. to change the name of the INSTE program.

Second, on July 1, 2017, Drs. Nick and Leona Venditti, President Elect Rev. Fermin Garcia, and the board of Inste Global Bible College will start the six-month succession process. This will prepare Rev. Garcia to assume the presidency of Inste Global Bible College on January 1, 2018.

On January 1, 2018, Drs. Nick and Leona Venditti will step down from their current positions as President and Academic Dean of Inste Global Bible College. They will be granted a one-year sabbatical by the board of Inste Global Bible College with full compensation.

An international council will be established beginning January 1, 2018, to represent the ministry of INSTE around the world. This council will include Regional Directors of INSTE as well as other strategic members. Drs. Nick and Leona Venditti will serve as co-chairs of this council. The international council will report to the president and board of directors of Inste Global Bible College annually (or at the semi-annual board meetings) and periodically as needed.

The board of Inste Global Bible College expresses its sincere gratitude to Drs. Nick and Leona Venditti for their 35 years of distinguished and dedicated service to INSTE around the world. During this time INSTE has expanded from Spain, where it was first established in 1982, to 40 countries around the world, including the U.S. Only eternity will reveal the thousands of disciples that were made and church leaders that were developed for the kingdom of God through INSTE.
