Co-Founder & President of DCIBIN
Destiny Changers International Bible Institute (DCIBIN) was founded by the dynamic duo, Rev. David Mensah Noah and Rev. Rosemary Koomson in December 2015. Their passion for souls, ministry, transforming lives and setting people on course to fulfill their destinies inspired them to set up a bible training school to properly equip those called into ministry with the word of God and practical ministry. Rev. David and Rev. Rosie are also the founders of Destiny Changers International (DCI), DCI Ministerial Network among other business entities.
Destiny Changers International Bible Institute, then DCI School of Ministry (DCISOM), was founded and established in December 2015. It opened it's doors to the first round of students on Sunday, January 3rd, 2016 via phone conferencing. It's first instructors, Rev. Philip Akuaku Noah, and Rev. Rosemary Koomson, taught the students who enrolled for 6 months in Christian Ministry. A couple of the students were ordained into ministry by the DCI Ministerial Network (DCIMN) in July and November 2016, upon completion of their ministerial training from the school.
As a new and growing institution, then DCISOM, upgraded to a more functional and robust technologically driven educational platform in January 2017, by introducing it's Citrix platform. This eliminated physical boundaries and allowed and offered more opportunities to a greater pool of people around the world to connect via phone, tablets, computers, as long as they have internet access.
On July 1, 2017, the institution changed it's name from DCI School of Ministry to Destiny Changers International Bible Institute (DCIBIN), with official filings with the state of Ohio. As part of it's culture of excellence, the school is constantly improving it's processes, protocols and quality of faculty and staff to better serve it's students and the outside world.
DCIBIN is and strives to be the preferential choice of accelerated ministry training for working adults, ministry workers and students. This is due to the affordability, flexibility, convenience and accessible nature of our educational model.
Vision: Our vision is to equip those called into the five-fold ministry and church leadership with the knowledge and skill sets needed to instruct the word of God, transform lives, edify the body of Christ and live a life of integrity in and out of the pulpit.
Mission Statement: Creating a well structured learning environment to teach, train, and adequately equip people for the work of Christian ministry.
Motto/Slogan: The school's motto is "Equip to Edify", and in most of the official documents, one will also read "Equipping to edify in the spirit of excellence", which highlights the school's motto and culture.
School Colors: Blue, White and Gold, with Red/burgundy being a secondary color to establish the DCI brand.
Legalities: DCIBIN is registered in the state of Ohio.
