Southeast Institute of Biblical Studies

(Formerly East Tennessee School of Preaching and Missions)

Every work we engage in, whether individually or corporately, must glorify God (1 Cor 10:31). East Tennessee School of Preaching and Missions, overseen by the elders of the Karns church of Christ and supported by hundreds of congregations and Christians, exists just for that singular reason.

ETSPM opened its doors in February 1971.  In nearly four decades of teaching, training and preparing men to serve the Lord, hundreds of students have completed our course of study. Those men and their families are serving the Lord’s church around the world in foreign mission works and many local works, both in public preaching and personal evangelism.


World Missions

Johnny Holman of World Missions is overseen by the elders of the Bridgeport Church of Christ located in Bridgeport,AL.  Their work is primarily in India, supporting schools of preaching and teaching in local Indian communities.

Mission South Haiti

Members of the Northeast congregation began helping with the Haiti work about 25 years ago. Northeast assumed oversight of the Delmas 43 work in Port-au-Prince in 1993. Brother Jean Robert St Hilaire has ministered to the Delmas 43 congregation for 22 years. The Delmas 43 congregation has grown from about six members in 1988 to over 400 current members. This congregation now has elders and a growing Preacher training school which has graduated about 60 students. Delmas 43 also conducts an annual Preachers’ Lectureship where denominational preachers are invited in and taught the Truth more completely. A large number of such preachers have been converted and have then gone back home and converted their own members. About 200 small congregations have been started throughout Haiti as a result of the training school and American assistance.
