Our History About ICBM
The International College of Bible and Missions began in January 2000 through the vision of Dr. Stewart Snook (ICBM's first principal) and others. The second principal was Dr. Gorgon Gregory; the third, Dr Frank Shayi, and fourth, Rev. Ndaba Mazabane. Our fifth and current principal is Dr. Arthur Alard who started serving in this role in January 2017. The college exists to serve the need of training leaders for the evangelical churches of Southern Africa.
