About Us - Our Continuing and Collaborative Ministries

The Mission for Biblical Literacy continues its efforts to "Stamp Out Biblical Illiteracy" while also offering "Hands On" Biblical Servant-Leadership through International Mission Projects: MBL is currrently serving in Armenia and Haiti.  Christian College of Georgia, historically related to the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Georgia, has served in Georgia, across the US, and in countries around the world, advancing ministerial competency and life-long education. 

Strategic Partnership

Since its inception, MBL has been in partnership with the Christian College of Georgia. Indeed, MBL was founded by a former President of Christian College, and has roots in higher education in both Oregon and Georgia. Both ministries place a high priority on Biblical Literacy. And both maintain a high priority on Bible/Ministerial Education AND Mission.
