Meet the Founders of World Bible Institute
    Drs. Steve and Brooke Highlander currently serve as pastors of Rockville Baptist Church, a Full Gospel Fellowship of Believers in Rockville, MO.  Besides pastoral ministry and missionary work the couple have experience in many other facets of ministry.  In the mid 1990's brother Highlander founded Door of Hope Prison Ministries.  He and his team have ministered in over 400 meetings inside prison walls.  He also produced and spoke on two popular radio programs, the Midnight Cry Radio Broadcast and CrossFire Daily Devotional.  Steve is also a published author.  

    For several years the Highlanders ministered to "At-risk" youth in both professional and ministerial capacities.  Steve recently received his Doctorate in Pastoral Theology and Brooke holds a Doctorate in Scriptural Psychology and is a Certified in Christian Counseling through the American Association of  Christian Therapists.  She has worked with youth in several private mental  health 

facilities and for the State of Missouri Division of youth Services, as well as the Youth Challenge Program sponsored by the Missouri National Guard.  Brooke and Steve also served as Chaplains for a private mental health facility and for the Youth challenge Program.  Brooke grew up in Y.W.A.M. (Youth With A Mission), and was involved in the original King's Kids program in California.  She later served with Y.W.A.M in Hawaii, then moved to Australia where she continued in an evangelistic and teaching ministry.

     Knowing the unique problems and trials that challenge ministers, the Highlanders share a call to minister to ministers.  Their ministry includes training and facilitating ministries and providing spiritual counsel and support for ministers and their families.  They also have a heart to see strong local Churches established around the world.
