Baltic Pastoral Institute is a place where, under the guidance of experienced teachers, students receive foundational knowledge and encouragement for further ministry. For me, the greatest achievement of BPI is a successful integration of academic knowledge into the environment where the personality of each student is discovered, developed and perfected in the light of Christian teaching and divine revelation. BPI has and, I believe, will contribute much to both the strengthening of Christian churches in Latvia and to the fostering of spiritual health in our society.
