SEBREN (Seminário Batista Regular do Norte) -- Regular Baptist Bible Institute of the North
The missionaries in our area have always been burdened to start a bible institute which would serve to supply workers and pastors for the area churches. In the early 1980´s we bought property on the outskirts of Belem along with our missionary colleagues. Today the property covers a city block with the academic center, dormitories, and a large, open air pavilion. Several houses on the property are rented out to help pay for seminary operating expenses. In past years Rick has served as director of SEBREN (our seminary in Belem). Both Rick and Gayle have taught classes at the seminary in the areas of theology, Christian Ed. and music. Currently, we have turned the academic section of seminary over to the Brazilians and we are responsible for the physical plant, the secretary and library along with the utilities. Gayle teaches piano lessons in the seminary´s Saturday music program.
