The Fgi ADM programme was created as a training ground for those who sense a call into the fivefold ministry of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers, yet we encourage all who desire to do a deeper study into God’s Word to get straight into this course after completing the DIM.
Persons enrolled in this programme can train for ministry, pursue an intense study of the Bible, enhance their present skills, gain a deeper understanding of the things of God, learn how to better relate to people, and obtain invaluable instruction on Faith, the Holy Spirit, Bible Prophecy and other theological areas such as cell groups, Christian counselling, and more (CIM & DIM have to be completed before a student can enrol for ADM) Persons enrolled in this programme who successfully complete all 3 modules will receive an Associate Degree in Ministry. Students who meet all graduation requirements may participate in the RBI graduation commencement exercises in full cap and gown.
This course can take 6 -12 months to complete, depending on the amount of time spent studying daily, on average 1-3 hours of dedicated study time/day is required to complete this course in under 12 months. This DIM program is measured in academic credit hours. Academic credit hours are transferable from one post-secondary institution to another and are subject to the guidelines and restrictions of the post-secondary institution that receives the credits.
In order to complete the ADM, the student needs to complete an additional 28 credits added to the DIM course for a total of 100 credits towards your degree. These next 28 credits are made up of Modules 9-11, each consisting of 4-5 subjects.
Ron had the privilege of growing up in a Christian home and by the age of 7 gave his life to Jesus Christ. He was Holy Spirit filled, and water baptized by the age of 8. His parents, Bert and Linda went into full time ministry while he was still a teenager, and it was actually in one of their church services where he knew he would go into full-time ministry one day.
Ron matriculated in 1989. He studied Electrical Engineering (light current) at the University of Technology Cape Town. After completing his degree he worked in the medical field installing, training & repairing HIV, pregnancy and decease-testing equipment all over South Africa. During this time he also completed 2 years of Bible School, which eventually propelled him to get his Masters of Christian Education in 2013.
In March 1998, Ron got married to Natasha whom he met through Bible school. 2 years later they answered the call of God to join the River Group in East London, South Africa, incorporating River Ministries and Faith Broadcasting Network as pastors. They served as pastors with many different responsibilities, including the developing of an evening Bible school and later the three year full-time degreed Bible School.
Ron’s passion to equip people has led him to become director of education.
Ron and Natasha have three boys, Reuel, Ronan and the youngest Raphael. He is a family man and loves playing squash with his boys. Reuel has represented South Africa in squash and the other two boys their province at some point.
