Colegio Biblico

Located on the Mexican border, in Eagle Pass, Texas, since 1945, Colegio Biblico (Spanish for Bible College) is a Spanish-speaking ministry school that prepares workers from Mexico, the rest of Latin America, and the United States for Christian ministry in the Spanish-speaking world. As of the 2016 census, 17.8% of the population of the United States is Hispanic, making it the largest ethnic or racial minority in the country. The need for evangelism in the United States alone, not to mention Mexico and the rest of Central and South America, is simply overwhelming. Colegio Biblico exists to train Christian workers to seek and save the lost in their own language and culture. 90% of Hispanic preachers in American Christian Churches and Churches of Christ are graduates of Colegio Biblico.

In the 1990's student enrollment at the Eagle Pass, TX facility drastically decreased because the United States Immigration Service made it more difficult for Mexican citizens to obtain student visas. The trustees and administrators at Colegio Biblico decided that a ministry school should be started on the Mexican side of the border so that those students who could not get a visa to come to the Eagle Pass campus would have the opportunity to receive the same level of training in their own country. Thus, a second campus in Piedras Negras, Coahuila (just across the border from the Eagle Pass, Texas campus) was opened.

Since 1996, Colegio Biblico has been operating Christian ministry schools on both sides of the border with Mexico. In this way they provide education, room, and board in Piedras Negras, Coahuila for those students unable to obtain USA student visas. Their instructors perform double duty, teaching at the Piedras Negras facility in the morning, and across the border in Eagle Pass in the afternoon.
