Bringing hope and purpose to the lives of American public school students through Released Time Bible Education.

About School Ministries


Since 1991, God has positioned our multi-denominational Christian ministry to assist Christians across the country to start, sustain and grow Released Time Bible Education (RTBE) programs.

Through our resources, events, and consultation, we equip, educate and encourage members (and future members). We also are committed to helping parents understand benefits; churches, opportunities; and schools, legalities.

With God’s vision and provision, and our help, we believe you can do this.

How do we know? Because of God, with God and for God, we’re helping to start, sustain and grow Released Time programs.

Your Released Time ministry is to the public school students in your community. Our ministry? To the programs. Our ministry is to YOU!  Some would say we are consultants. But we see it as more than that. We are called to minister to Released Time leaders.
