And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away.
-- 1 Peter 5:4

For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.

About Us

about-usOur Mission...

Thompson Bible International Institute (TBII) seeks to motivate God's workers toward Spirit-directed Bible study, which will enable clear and effective communication of God's Word.  The ultimate aim is mature reproducing followers of Jesus Christ who live their lives in accordance with His Word.

Our History...

In 1982, Dr. John Jauchen was ministering on the remote island of Mindanao in the southern part of the Philippines.  He noticed that good study tools were rare and in great demand.  Responding to the requests of Filipino pastor-friends, Dr. Jauchen made an informal study of the major Study Bibles available at the time.  He came to believe that the Thompson Chain-Reference Study Bible® was one of the best one-volume study tools for people who were teaching and preaching on a regular basis.  It has no study notes, forcing the student to rely on the Holy Spirit for his primary understanding of a passage.  The Thompson Bible has more than 600 pages of reference material including a concordance, maps, and biographical helps.  Its foundation is an excellent study system containing more than 4,200 topics, organized in an easy-to-use fashion.  This study system facilitates the preparation of message series in a short amount of time.  Using this Bible, the servant of God can preach topical, verse-by-verse, and biographical messages - all for the building up of strong Christians who will reproduce themselves in the lives of other people.

Our Worldwide Vision...

Since 1982, more than 100,000 pastors, evangelists, and local church workers have been equipped and trained in India, the Philippines, Chad, Bolivia, Paraguay, Chile, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Mexico, Panama, Cuba, El Salvador the United States and many countries in Africa.  Other countries have been represented as missionaries have returned back to their fields of ministry using the training received.  When you successfully complete this course, you are linked in a special way with thousands of your brothers and sisters in Christ ministering around the world.  Someday you will meet them in Heaven, along with a multitude of believers who have come into deeper intimacy with our Savior due to a clearer and more powerful transmission of the Word of God.
