Bridgeworld College started with a vision of Dr. James Jong-Do Lee, a former professor at the Nairobi International School of Theology (NIST). While teaching at NIST, he felt the need to mobilize African nationals and churches to missions. In spite of the overwhelming growth rate of Christianity, African churches had not been seriously involved in mission to the unreached groups within the continent. Pinpointing this fact and its following shortcomings, he insisted that the mobilization should begin with the church-based pastoral training so that African national churches can take the initiative in missions. However, due to the serious financial burdens, many African pastors are not equipped with the appropriate theological education.

To overcome this limitation, BC started to train pastors through a relevant mode of church based theological education. With the very well qualified trainers, the first class  in Intercultural Ministry began with 20 students on September 26, 2002. After operating from a small office at African Evangelistic Enterprise in Karen, BC rented a house-sized compound at Mountain View Estate where Cross-cultural missionary training started to be held along with the pastoral training. Currently, the organization has acquired Africa Mission Center in Karen as its official premise from which it will be offering training.

Bridgeworld College began by offering informal training to pastors and other church leaders. Later on realizing that there is a great need to offer value based formal education and training to the public in general, Bridgeworld College was registered as an accredited educational institution.

The College has enjoyed over 12 years of competent training with many alumni serving in East Africa, South Sudan, Zambia, DRC, Ethiopia and Eritrea. The serene, quiet environment in Karen and quality training makes the college a relevant place for the bright future of our students.

Bridgeworld has now entered into a new era. Its founder and the first Principal, James Jong-Do Lee, who has served for the past 17 years with Bridgeworld College, stepped down from the position of the principal in the end of 2019. On behalf of succeeding him, God has providentially prepared a servant of God, Dr. Peter Chin, who is now serving the Bridgeworld community as the second principal. He has served Global Mission Church in Korea as Senior Pastor to a 40,000 member congregation. It is God’s divine plan to have him join and now leading Bridgeworld.

Message from the Principal

Training Godly People to Impact the World

Greetings and welcome to Bridgeworld College!

Our vision statement for Bridgeworld College (BWC) is training godly people to impact the world. By equipping in mind, character, and stewardship through transformative education, we strive to provide the tools and opportunities for Christian leaders to be empowered to positively impact people in their spheres of influence.

We offer both formal education in a traditional classroom setup, and also hands-on, practical training through tailored workshops, seminars, and conferences through the partnership of Africa Training and Mentoring Network (ATMN).

In the inevitably changing world of technology and the unprecedented COVID-19, we have restructured ourselves to offer both physical and virtual modes of study in order to meet the needs of our student body. Our institution’s flexibility without compromising the quality of education is one of the greatest benefits that our students enjoy through our dual teaching models.

As a part of the student body of BWC, it is my desire and hope that every student reaps the benefit of excellent instruction, hands-on learning experience, affordable fees, scholarship opportunities, cultural diversity and closely-built relationships with not only fellow students but also the administration and professors who become life-time/lifelong mentors.

As we celebrate our past achievements and experiences over the last decade, we courageously continue our God-given mandate of offering quality, holistic and affordable education. Our desire is and will always be to see an Interculture-Intergated, Christ-Centered, Bible-Based and Mission-Minded society impacted by trained leaders transforming the world for Christ here and beyond.

Dr., Rev. Peter Chin, Principal

  1. Bridgeworld College (BC),is a major ministry of Bridge World International (BWI), an evangelical, non-profit, non-denominational and non-political Christian educational organization, on the basis of the following statement of faith:
  2. We believe the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired Word of God, without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men and the Divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life.
  3. We believe in one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  4. We believe that Jesus Christ is true God and true man, having been Conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. Further, He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where, at the right hand of the Majesty on High, He now is our  High Priest and  Advocate.
  5. We believe that man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is, therefore, lost, and only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit, and thus become children of God.
  6. We believe that the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe, and only such as receive Jesus Christ are born of the Holy Spirit, and thus become children of God.
  7. We believe that the true Church is composed of all such persons who through united together in the body of Christ of which He is the Head.
  8. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead; of the believer to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord; of the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment.
