Once called the New Zealand Assembly Bible School (NZABS), the college was established in 1958 and for many years operated as a residential college in Auckland, New Zealand. In 1999, the NZABS, amalgamated with Global Literature Outreach Bible and Missionary College (GLO) to form what today is known as Pathways College of Bible & Mission. As a result of this amalgamation, Pathways College has a heritage of both robust Theological studies and hands-on ministry and missional practice.
It’s our mission to disciple people in the local Church through excellent academics, ministry and mentoring. Our story continues today with students of Pathways College enjoying the opportunity and freedom to study from anywhere in New Zealand and around the world. People that may not have had access to Christian education in the past can now study from anywhere.
As a non-profit (or not-for-profit) organisation, this is made possible through the generous financial support of likeminded donors who want to see the Christian community grow.
Pathways graduates are sought after and can now be found in every part of society. Christian organisations, influencing communities, helping people in need, youth and higher education, charity work, NZ and overseas missions, supporting the disadvantaged and underprivileged and philanthropy. We hope you enjoyed our story and learning more about the history of Pathways College.
