The Copperbelt School of Biblical Studies is situated in Ndola, Zambia. Ndola, the third-largest city in Zambia, has a population of over 600,000 people. Ndola is located in the Copperbelt Province of Zambia. The Copperbelt name refers to the region of land spanning across northern Zambia and southern Democratic Republic of the Congo, which is known for its copper mines. With the school taking the same name, we aim to serve not only Zambia but also students in the surrounding countries.
The campus of the Copperbelt School of biblical studies has three main buildings. One building contains the classroom, office, and guesthouse. Another building contains the dining room, kitchen, and dorm rooms. A fully staffed and equipped kitchen provides the daily meals for the students. One office provides adequate working space for the instructors to work.
The classroom is equipped with high quality desks and chairs to provide a proper space for each student to learn. The Classroom can accomodate over 16 men for training.


In 2022, our long-time friend and supporter of our global mission, Brother Scott Richard, approached us with an exciting proposal. He expressed his desire to fund a new preacher training school in Africa, covering both its initial setup and ongoing monthly expenses. Inspired by this opportunity, we began exploring potential locations for this new institution. Initially, Tanzania was at the forefront of our considerations, and it remains a strong candidate for future expansion. However, due to a shortage of available teachers, we decided to postpone establishing a school there.

Our focus then shifted to Northern Zambia, a strategic choice given its size and the fact that it borders seven other African nations. Zambia also boasted a rich pool of graduates who could serve as faculty for the new school. Additionally, having an existing registration in Zambia significantly streamlined the process. With all these factors in mind, we embarked on the journey to establish the Copperbelt School of Biblical Studies in Ndola.

After a year of diligent preparation, we proudly commenced our first classes in February 2024. The blessings on our new endeavor in Ndola have been evident, and we look forward to many fruitful years of training Gospel preachers for the cause of Christ.
