He is a progressive leader with a strong call from God to teach His Word with clarity, grace, and love. For the past four years Fermín has served as the National Director of INSTE Mexico.

“Inste Bible College (IBC) exists to make disciples and develop leaders,” Fermín said. “Yet times have changed. This makes the accomplishment of our vision more challenging and yet exciting. In the coming months and years we will work to digitize IBC and expand its influence. We will work closely with Open Bible and its local churches and even other organizations worldwide to make IBC the leading biblical training program in the world. With its high quality of education and expansion to the digital world we will be ready to prepare leaders to change the world for God’s Kingdom.”
