Developing Leaders for Ministry Service

Alumni Services

All graduates of the HBI program will automatically become Alumni. There is no fee to become an Alumni member and you do not need to complete an application to become an Alumni.

Covenant Minister's Fellowship Enrollment

All graduates are automatically made a part of CMF. You will continue to receive practical ministry training for the remainder of your life through CMF at our annual CMF conference that will feature ongoing ministry training. You will also have access to other people in ministry for much needed support.
