Asia Theological Association

TNIU is a member of Asia Theological Association.

ATA’s Mission: The Asia Theological Association is a body of theological institutions, committed to evangelical faith and scholarship, networking together to serve the Church in equipping the people of God for the mission of the Lord Jesus Christ.
ATA’s Vision: The ATA is committed to serving its members in the development of evangelical, biblical theology by strengthening interaction, enhancing scholarship, promoting academic excellence, fostering spiritual and ministerial formation and mobilizing resources to fulfill God’s global mission within diverse Asian cultures.

ATA’s History: ATA was formally established in 1970 as a direct outcome of the Asia-South Pacific Congress of Evangelism held in Singapore in 1968. It grew out of a concern that “evangelicals had neglected theological scholarship in the past and that the Asian church leadership was increasingly being influenced by Western liberal theology.” Its primary goal was to develop “evangelical scholars, thinkers, and teachers” for the leadership of the Asian church.

The Foursquare Church

The Foursquare Global Council certifies The New International University as a Foursquare Bible University.

The Foursquare Church is a global church that spans hundreds of cultures. As a denomination, the Foursquare Church has a unique history that stems from missions and evangelism. It began as a powerful evangelistic movement and spread throughout the nations to become the global family it is today.

The name reflects the unchanging ministry of Jesus Christ and the mission to declare it worldwide. The four squares of the logo represent the four scriptural roles of Jesus as Savior, Baptizer with the Holy Spirit, Healer and Soon-Coming King.

Word & Spirit

Word & Spirit has one main objective – to enable Christians to engage enthusiastically with the Bible in ways that reflect our belief that it is the best collection of God’s words to us. As such, it merits our careful examination because it’s the most powerful catalyst for our growth as Christians – not just because it’s a remarkable resource from God for us – but also because it introduces us to the divine author himself. The Bible is valuable, and particularly precious because it introduces us to the one who, as well as creating the universe, also said ‘I’d like you to get to know me better – so here’s the first lesson – my Bible’.

Our aspiration is to enable Christians to realize that the Bible is to be experienced, not merely read or studied; to be a source of exploration and discovery; and to be a place of transforming encounter. It’s not intended merely to be a systematised, dogmatic database of truth but also, and even more importantly to be a supernatural, creative mentor of our lives. It’s a series of love letters from one who loves endlessly rather than simply a list of beliefs from the cleverest intellect in the universe. It’s intended to touch our hearts much more than ever it was intended to teach our heads. As such, it has the power to transform us.

Consequently, Word and Spirit provide resources for exploring the Bible for individual Christians, Life Groups, Bible Colleges and denominational training programs of leaders. For more information, see

International Center for Christian Leadership

ICCL was established in 2002. For the first time in the Ukraine, the leaders of eight different Christian Unions and Denominations, united together to work for Gods Kingdom.

These unions represent 10,000 churches. The International Center for Christian Leadership exists to equip pastors, evangelists, church planters, missionaries and Bible school educators to become effective leaders. The International Center for Christian Leadership accomplishes its mission through mentoring, conferences, seminars, retreats, graduate level courses on leadership and a ‘state of the art’ resource center that brings the best resources in the world to
church leaders in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union.


Faith & Action

Faith & Action was founded in 1996 to meet a need in biblical, cross-cultural, practical studies for training pastors. We approach every topic by finding the big principles, then explaining, illustrating, and applying those principles to meet the needs of Christians who desire to live out Christ’s pattern for life in today’s world. Join us as we explore the precious, biblical, foundational principles to guide our lives. Whether you are a pastor who is preaching through books of the Bible, someone who leads a small group, or a student of the Bible who wants to dig into the rich studies these pastors and educators
have to offer, Faith & Action resources can bless you.

Faith & Action Team provides a Bible-based, ministry curriculum developed with academic excellence from a pastor’s perspective, to empower Spirit-filled leaders to win the lost, disciple believers, and prepare God’s people to serve worldwide.

Wilberforce International Institute

Vision – Internationals will foster human flourishing as they apply a Christian worldview and principles in their societies.

Mission – To equip internationals to bring Christ-centered transformation to their societies.

Dr. Bob Osburn created in 1989 an organization dedicated to training international students to be redemptive change agents in their home societies. With the help of fellow visionaries in academia, law, and the professional world Wilberforce Academy was born. It was named for the great British parliamentarian, William Wilberforce, who fought slavery while also redemptively transforming British society. From its very beginning, the organization has aimed to train international students to courageously, creatively, intelligently, and skillfully apply a Christian worldview to problems facing their home societies. In 2020, a process of succession planning began with the hiring of Dr. Kevin Cooney to succeed Dr. Osburn as President of Wilberforce and the name was changed to Wilberforce International Institute in order to more correctly identify the mission and differentiate the organization.
