ABI is A proud member of African Bible Colleges Group

Values before value


ABI strongly believes that the fight against poverty in Africa calls not only for a critical mass of small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs) but also the ethical leaders to run them. Africa needs business leaders who will be known for their unshakeable integrity and selfless values, whose ultimate motive is not the enriching of pockets but the enriching of lives. 

Successful leaders who hold to such values can revolutionise and revitalise entire villages, cities, and even nations.  However, leaders like these, who possess both the business acumen of an entrepreneur and the pastoral heart of a church minister are hard to find.  

The African Bible Colleges (ABC) Group, however, has a 45-year history of training church ministers and Christian leaders in Africa. Launching ABI as part of ABC Group provides ABI with the ability to produce the very kind of business leaders that Africa needs to transform itself.

Operating on ABC campuses and accepting a majority of its post-graduate classes from ABC alumni gives ABI the unique ability to provide an environment that nurtures spiritual growth, cultivates a culture of servant-leadership, and instils a hardwired enthusiasm to serve God and people.
