AABS BOARD

The Team Behind the Ministry

"AABS represents a tangible mission effort that is more than evangelizing souls in a distant continent. It represents an ongoing training ministry that allows individuals to grow in the knowledge of Christ. Providing training and educational materials to Bible  schools throughout Africa is a ministry that multiplies itself. Africa is faced with political, spiritual and economic challenges that are ongoing. AABS shines the light of Christ into that part of God’s world. It is a wonderful thing to be able to support Pastor J.C. and Lois’ ongoing vision to bring Christ to the world."

“My wife and I have been involved with JC and Lois Ebersole and the ministry in Ghana since they first went to Africa in 2003. Ruth Ann served on the MST as the children's representative, so we have watched as the ministry has grown and changed  over the years. When JC  and Lois informed us that they wanted to make AABS an independent ministry with a vision of making Bible based training affordable and available to church leaders in rural areas, we agreed with that vision. JC asked if I would be willing to serve on the board of this new venture--I agreed. It has been a blessing to be a part of this mission, and my prayer is that God's kingdom will be advanced as His leaders are trained for the ministry they are called to do.”

"I first learned about AABS in 2017, and I was impressed with this effective way of providing biblical resources for independently-owned Bible Schools throughout Africa.  What a great way to help train church leaders in their home communities and to support and encourage them in their ministry.  I’m glad to be part of AABS."

"Our first exposure to AABS was in 2005 when we spent four months in Ghana working on an orphanage construction project with Agape Gospel Mission.  During our time there we were exposed to Agape’s vision to provide Bible training materials through AABS to African pastors with a heart to teach the Word of God to the people in their villages.  In the years since then we’ve appreciated JC and Lois’s commitment to furthering the work of Africa Association of Bible Schools and are happy to be involved by serving on the board."

JC EBERSOLE

Executive Director & Founder

"From our beginning the vision of AABS has been to expand the training of church leaders and lay persons in such a way that it will reach many more men and women in many more places than could possibly be trained at campus based Bible colleges alone. We envisioned that this training would increase exponentially if it were made available “on-site”, that is, in the local churches and communities across Africa and beyond. We anticipate accomplishing our vision through provision of Biblical curriculum and other resources to thousands of African owned and operated Bible schools across their continent, assisting them in their goal to effectively train leaders and disciple believers."
