HISTORY OF KWBC
It all started in 1968, in answer to the growing demands of the Christian Evangelical Mission
for more Christian workers, the Keith Williams Bible School was born. It was started as a Lay
preacher’s institute, situated at the foot of a valley dubbed as the Celestial Valley of Suawan,
Marilog District, Davao City.
In 1970, the institute was converted into a regular institution of learning with Miss Evelyn Grace
Fernandez as principal. The institute was named Keith Williams Bible School, in honor of
Dr. Keith M. Williams, a missionary-evangelist, the director of the Midwest Evangelistic Association
and the mission supporter of the Christian Evangelical Mission then.
In 1974, the Keith Williams Bible School produced its first graduates in the preparatory Course.
In 1975, the peace and order situation of the Celestial Valley of Suawan was hampered by the hostility
of the tribal groups on the area. The peace and order situation was turning from bad to worse. This
compelled the members of school board to vacate the students to a safer ground.
The school was transferred to Tancontian Village, R. Castillo Street, Agdao, Davao City, the headquarter
of the Christian Evangelical Mission, Inc.
1976 – KWBS produced its second batch of graduates in Diploma Course, namely: Rev. Larry Enoch; Rev. Manuel Dañola, Rev. Cornelio Baon, former Rev. Requierme Oyao, Welina Penafiel-Cuaresma, Cristina Buat-Jingco.
1978 – With a yearning of a larger place, the Keith Williams Bible School was transferred from Agdao, Davao City to its present location. Km. 9 Catalunan Pequeno, Davao City. In that same year the name, Keith Williams Bible School was changed to Keith Williams Bible Institute.
1987 – Another milestone in the history of the school was the extension of its training ministry at the tip of Southern Philippines, the birth of another school, the Keith Williams Bible College Extension located at Big Margus, Sarangani Province.
In 1995, the Keith Williams Bible Institute offered its first-degree program during its summer classes, numbers of ECOFI pastors have responded and availed of taking the special program.
1997- In response to the mounting demands of the changing world with a vision to offer the degree program in regular classes and to cater the ECOFI young people who graduated from high school, the name Keith Williams Bible Institute was changed to Keith Williams Bible College, based on the strong recommendation from the faculty members and staff to the KWBC School board.
1999 - The school produced its first graduates on the degree program as a product of its summer classes.
