Faith Builders Educational Programs, Inc., an NCCRS member since November 2010, founded in 1987, is a nonprofit, conservative, Mennonite post secondary school that offers a Christian-Anabaptist worldview-based training program for students preparing to teach or minister in local and foreign settings. Among Faith Builders' educational goals are the following:
- To integrate knowledge and application through a rigorous apprenticeship education
- To instill a Christian worldview that is rooted in the Anabaptist understanding of Christianity
- To assist churches by preparing people who can pastor, raise Christian children, and teach in Christian schools
- To assist students who want to attend an Anabaptist school for several years before they go to other schools.
Faith Builders offers three two-year tracks of study: Teacher Apprenticing; Christian Ministries; and General Studies. In addition, Faith Builders offers continuing education in a wide variety of subjects in 5-week summer and winter terms. Course levels range from basic to advanced and classes are taught on-site. The faculty has been recruited from among trained and experienced members of various Anabaptist communities.
