Hope Bible Institute was created by the pastoral staff at Hope Christian Fellowship. Pastor Alfonso Galvano (Lead Pastor) and Pastor Luis Diaz (Associate Pastor) agreed that HCF has young individuals passionate about God, yet lacking in understanding sound biblical doctrine. For this reason Hope Bible Institute was created.
 
As discussions continued the vision expanded beyond the local church at HCF, and out to the entire Rochester community. In doing so, we believed that it was important to find pastors and elders from congregations outside of HCF to aid in investing and teaching the students. This would allow us to reach out beyond HCF, and at the same time help other congregations by assisting them with equipping the saints. By God’s grace this desire is being accomplished.
 
It is our goal to help develop the disciple into a servant leader effective in their homes, local churches, and their community. In addition, we want to help men and women deepen their relationship with God via in depth study through critical thinking and practical ministry with hands on experience.
