About

History

In 1941 the Pacific District Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches formed a "Permanent School Committee" to consider the establishment of a post-secondary school. In 1944 Pacific Bible Institute opened in a large residence on Van Ness Avenue in Fresno with twenty-eight students. Soon outgrowing its original campus, the school moved in 1946 to a former YWCA building in downtown Fresno.

Education

We offer over 30 degree options and more than 100 areas of study for high school graduates and transfer students. With more than 45 distinctive graduate programs, our alumni are in high-demand locally and beyond for their professionalism, depth and breadth of knowledge in their field and leadership.
