Regional Bible Institute  exists, as a partnership between churches, to train men and women who in turn will re-invest their lives into others through teaching and service ministries within the church.

RBI focuses on three, foundational aspects of Christian life and ministry: 1) Theology: Growing in our theological understanding of God's Word; 2) Biblical Exposition: Growing in our ability to handle God's word; and 3) Practical Theology/ Ministery: Growing as capable servants in day-to-day

What will your folks experience?

1) A concentrated time of college-level instruction from a pastor's heart with real-life/ ministry application;
2) A concentrated time of fellowship around the Word and ministry training;
3) A concentrated time of fellowship with other ministry leaders from other churches.
4) A concentrated time of personal reflection concerning personal, spiritual growth and ministry focus.

Stretch and Sow = Church Planting

Stretch and Sow is a Church Planting emphasis whereby the OARBC comes alongside people or agencies who are attempting to establish new likeminded Baptist churches in Ohio. As a Fellowship of Churches, the OARBC does this by giving grants of money from time to time as needed, but also by encouraging fellowshipping churches to come alongside these church plants and church planters with regular support through prayer, finances, and personnel.


Current Church Plants

Canal Winchester - Cornerstone Baptist (Jeff and Rebekah Farr, Tim and Jackie Hitchcock)

Cleveland - Faith Baptist Church (Michael and Sherri Vanek, Jackie Hopkins, Norma Nulph, John and Laura Niemeyer)

Cleveland - CityView Baptist Church (Ken and Renee Dockery, Bill and Natalie Taylor)

Geneva - Grace Baptist Church (Tom and Diane Stubrich, Les and Vivian Tinner)
