Pilgrim Institute


Our Pilgrimage

Our Pilgrimage is a personal study developed for an individual that desires a closer walk with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Once a person completes this study not only will they be better prepared for their wilderness experience here on earth but can be like the character “Great Heart” and lead others through the wilderness to the Celestial City. The Book “Pilgrim Progress” is the foundation of this study. However, it is supplemented by many other resources.

In the right column, you will find links to resources, lessons, and blogs that will be used for the “My Pilgrimage” study.

Our Vision

The purpose of Pilgrim-Institute ORG is to provide a free educational path designed to give our student Pilgrims the Biblical, Theological, and Doctrinal understanding that will prepare them for teaching, preaching, Biblical Counseling Ministry or just to strengthen their faith.

Our History

Pilgrim-Institute was initially a part of “Four Soils Ministry” that was established to provide free Biblical training by way of the internet. Our goal was to provide resources that were available “Free of charge”.  This program was initiated after the founder’s teaching pastors in Bible schools in Africa and India, plus being involved in mission activities in Europe, Latin America, and the Caribbean. While ministering in these locations he recognized a need existed for free Internet Bible resources to provide a strong foundation for a Pilgrim to minister. 

At the peak of “Four Soils Ministry”, we had Bible students enrolled from 51 different nations simultaneous.  This was early in the development of the internet and over time many larger organizations started to fill this need and the “Four Soils Ministry” decided to shut that portion of our ministry down.

However, we elected to leave a few of our internet ministries active. Pilgrim-Institute.org was one of them.

The Founder

Pastor Charlie was a pastor of a small church, has a Dmin degree in theology, and had worked for four years with one of the United States’ largest traditional classroom seminaries. In 1995 on a mission trip to Africa, teaching local pastors in a two-week Bible School he began to recognize that there was a need for Bible and Theological training that would available worldwide totally free including all required resources also available free on the Internet.

Before entering the ministry, he had over thirty years of computer industry experience and a master’s in Computer Systems supplemented by Bible College and seminars and realized that God had prepared him to develop such a training program.  A few years after pastor Charlie started these internet ministries, many larger organizations and churches began to provide much better resources, therefore the need for these other ministries was fulfilled with better resources.

However, the Pilgrim-Institute Resources online for anyone’s use. My God bless your use. Please send me an email with questions and/or comments.
