Hyles-Anderson College is a premier environment to train for the mission field. With the main college campus strategically placed 30 minutes from one of the largest multi-cultural cities in America, the mission field is practically in our backyard. The Missions Department faculty is composed of experienced educators and veteran missionaries who have served on the mission field themselves and have a sincere burden to train men and women to do the same.

For Hyles-Anderson College students, it’s a seamless transition from the classroom to the mission field. The Missions Department at Hyles-Anderson College and Fundamental Baptist Missions International (FBMI) are led by the same veteran missionaries who prepare our students in the classroom and then work side-by-side with them as they attend candidate school, complete deputation, and move to the mission field. Hyles-Anderson College’s close connection with FBMI also gives students the opportunity to take mission trips all over the world.

Dr. Dan Siemer instructs students in Practical Medical Training.
