South Pacific Bible College - New Zealand

The South Pacific Bible College (SPBC) has been in operation since 1982. Graduates return home to their countries (New Zealalnd, Australia, Fiji, Tonga, Papua New Guinea, Malaysia, Thailand and others) to teach, preach, evangelize and plant churches. SPBC is headed by Steve Raine. SPBC is partially funded by the Otumoetai Church of Christ in New Zealand. In addition to Biblical training, the work involves strengthening existing churches, developing local leadership and establishing new congregations.

Steve's wife, Gill has her own mission work, Rahab Ministries that operates in one of Bangkok, Thailand's red light districts. Gill visits the area and offers the women opportunites for job skills in a Christian environment.
