Two-Day Intensives

Every spring, Portland Bible College partners with Mannahouse Church to host two-day ministry equipping intensives at the Portland Campus.

On March 17th and 18th, PBC students joined with another 250 attenders for WILD Summit 2022. We welcomed Pastor Dave Ferguson as the summit general session speaker. Pastor Dave spoke on ….

Dave Ferguson is an award-winning author of the book Hero Maker and lead pastor of Chicago’s Community Christian Church, a missional multi-site community considered one of the most influential churches in America. He is also the visionary for the international church-planting movement NewThing and president of the Exponential Conference.

Each summit attender chose a ministry track intended to strategically train and equip ministry leaders and pastors in their ministry roles.

Each track is powered by Portland Bible College faculty members. Students could audit the course or participate in an assignment to earn one college credit toward their degree. This year students could choose between six intensives. Every year the number of tracks offered is growing!
