Shiloh Bible College Ethiopia serves all Christians in Ethiopia. Our partner is the Evangelical Church Fellowship for Southern Ethiopia and our main campus is located onthe ECFSE compound in Hawassa, SNNPR. Shiloh does not operate churches in the nation of Ethiopia nor does it ordain pastors. Rather SBCE is dedicated to serving all Christians of whatever denomination or affiliation. Thus our student body consists ofstudents from many denominations and churches of Ethiopia. This provides an opportunity to build relationships with students of various theological backgrounds and is an opportunity to build unity among Ethiopian Christians.
The main campus of SBCE is located in Hawassa, SNNPR reported to be the 3rd largestcity in Ethiopia. Currently our Hawassa campus serves 350 students each year. The main campus conducts the following programs: Missionary Outreach Certificate Program (in cooperation with Rift Valley Vision Project); Diploma and Advanced Diploma in English; Bachelor of Theology; Post Graduate Diploma in Theology; Master or Arts in Theology.
Other locations where some classes and programs are conducted are located at Wolayta Soddo, Adama (Nazareth), Debre Zeit, Ambo, and Jimma. Information on these locations and programs can be obtained from the main office by going to the Contact Us page. Graduates of SBCE are denominational leaders, pastors, evangelists, NGO workers,church elders, and teachers in all major denominations as well as many independent churches throughout Ethiopia.Priority is given to practical application of theological teaching and the personal development of Christian leaders. Students are taught to study and research the scripture for themselves in order to understand biblical issues and appropriately apply their knowledge in the Ethiopian context.
