Advanced Missiological Concepts and Applications
June 6–10, 2016
Class begins at 1:00 PM on Monday and ends at noon on Friday.
This course will focus on a Biblical philosophy of and methodology for missions. Emphasis will be placed on all aspects of a local church missions program including missions giving, missionary selection, and the sending of missionaries.
Dr. Ron White was saved at the age of eleven and called to be a missionary when he was twelve at a summer camp near Richwood, West Virginia. In the more than 50 years that have passed, the Lord has remained faithful to him.
After he graduated from Tennessee Temple College with a BA in Bible and Sacred Music, Ron married his wife Odessa on August 16, 1963. They had the joy of serving as missionaries in Japan for nearly 33 years. Ron also served as president of the Kansai Independent Baptist Bible College for most of those years. Before the Lord chose to call Odessa Home in 1998, both Ron and Odessa knew that what He had called them to do together, they had finished together.
Since then, the Lord has led Ron to an expanded ministry to other parts of the world, including Japan. He travels the world on a regular basis assisting missionaries. His deep burden for the ministry of missionaries and their families is evident as he shares updates and prayer requests during his time at home.

Ambassador Baptist College is pleased to offer a graduate program specifically designed for those who are already serving the Lord in full-time ministry. The 32-hour Master of Ministries program requires seven week-long modules and a master’s thesis, designed to give advanced training to preachers without requiring them to leave their ministries for an extended time. Pre-class assignments and post-class projects are required for each class.
These modules are offered twice a year (usually January and June) and are worth four credit hours each. The core classes include Church History, The History of Fundamentalism, Ministry Philosophy and Ethics, Ministerial Counseling, and Advanced Apologetics. Each module is offered on a rotating basis. A student may complete his degree in three and one-half years if he follows the cycle.
Non-ABC graduates are welcome to participate in this program; it is offered with the desire to enhance the ministry of faithful servants of God, regardless of their alma mater. ABC graduates may enroll in the program if they have more than two years of ministry experience. Non-ABC graduates may enroll if they have more than ten years of ministry experience, have a bachelor’s degree, and are in agreement with Ambassador’s philosophy/doctrinal statement.
