We’re glad you took the time to visit the website of Manna Bible Institute!

It gives us the opportunity to introduce you to our school and its educational opportunities. Since 1944, Manna Bible Institute has served the city of Philadelphia and the Delaware Valley by providing sound Bible training to men and women who are serving Christ in churches and Christian ministries in the Philadelphia area and around the world. Pastors, ministers, Bible teachers, missionaries, evangelists, and workers in Christian organizations have graduated from Manna and taken their place in the life and ministry of the Church. Servants of Christ are trained here!


Manna is a non-denominational, multi-racial evening school with classes held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings in seven locations in the Delaware Valley (in Glassboro, Mount Holly, NJ, and in Chester and Roslyn, PA, and at Manna’s main campus temporarily in the Lancaster Bible College Philadelphia campus facility at Deliverance Evangelistic Church, 2001 W.
