SATELLITE SCHOOL ANNUAL BANQUET & SEMINAR
Satellite School Focus - Sunset Satellite Schools are a cooperative ministry between the Extension Department of Sunset International Bible Institute and local churches of Christ. They allow local congregations to use Sunset developed materials to train church leaders, teachers, members and future preachers within the local church; no relocation to the resident school of Sunset in Lubbock, Texas is required.
The rapid growth in this ministry illustrates how effective this tool has become to hundreds of Christians seeking in-depth Bible knowledge. Satellite Schools in Operation - Since the beginning of the satellite school program, almost 400 churches in 46 states and 20 foreign countries have purchased Sunset’s materials to use in training their members. Seventeen Satellite Schools have become certified schools.
By going through the certification process, they are allowed to advertise themselves as affiliated with Sunset, request additional help and input for their schools, and use Sunset’s logo. They are located in Fall River MA, Bermuda, Coffeyville KS, Milwaukee WI, Erie PA, Glasgow KY, Roosevelt NY, Medford OR, Odessa TX, Edmonton Alberta, Bixby OK, Tacoma WA, Jackson MI, Columbia SC, Fresno CA, Albuquerque NM, and Nashville, TN. An annual Satellite School Administrator’s Training Workshop is held in January as part of the Sunset Workshop every year. Each year dozens of new administrators are certified. Around 400 people have been certified at past workshops. (Text Taken from the Satellite School Webpage.)
