Full Gospel Bible Institute – Circa 1965

PST was born out of the Full Gospel Bible Institute (FGBI), founded in 1962, as the fulfillment of a vision received by FGBI founders, Dr. Charles and Dr. AnnaMae Strauser, when they were called by God to pastoral ministry. Their mission was to offer a quality Bible education to pastors, ministers and laity throughout the world; build ministries, and to reach all mankind with the word of God. Today we continue their vision, offering classes, with a number of sites throughout the USA and abroad, as well as distance learning programs.

Two Schools - One Purpose

Two schools comprise the Phrear School of Theology (PST). The Phrear School of Theology, offering undergraduate ministry degree programs in Biblical Studies, World Evangelism, and Bible & Theology; and the International Maranatha Institute, the PST mission school of training, through which students from around the world, may obtain their Diploma of Biblical Study.

Phrear School of Theology serves as the school of ministry of Full Gospel Assemblies, bringing a quality Biblical education to those called of the Lord to the ministry of His kingdom. Together, our schools serve students and alumni that represent over 80 countries worldwide.

The vision of Phrear School of Theology is to touch mankind everywhere with the power of the word of God, by training and preparing the followers of Christ to walk in their calling.
