Staff, Faculty & Instructors
Dr. Brian Alton, College Chancellor
I am so blessed to oversee the dynamic and life changing practical application of spiritual principles in ministry training and leadership development, through GATEWAY INTERNATIONAL BIBLE INSTITUTE. GIBI is not a traditional Bible School, Seminary, or College, but rather a fast track Holy Spirit filled Training Center, birthed and designed specifically for those whose strongest desire is to know Jesus Christ and to carry the gospel to all nations and generations to come.
Our Administration, Faculty, and Board of Directors are dedicated to training the future leaders of the church how to live, work and minister in the anointing of the Holy Spirit through the five-fold ministry and the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
We believe Revival is at the door of our hearts and breakthrough is coming to this nation. We are seeing God’s Powerful Visitation in His body of believers. The Lord desires to reveal and release His Glory over the face of the earth and in the lives of His people, and He is bringing Transformation to His church in order to birth one of the greatest outpourings of visitation and revival the world has ever known. With this in mind, our main vision is to teach, train, and send out men and women of character and integrity as five-fold Ministry-lead ambassadors for Christ in the spirit of Revival in this 21st Century.
GIBI is a place where you can increase your knowledge and gain a deeper more personal and passionate experience with the Lord Jesus Christ. We will provide you with fresh perspectives on how to minister, evangelize, reach, and teach others God’s life-changing power. This training is not just for those seeking full-time ministry within the confines of the local church or on the mission field, but also for those wanting to be used of God in the marketplace. GIBI is a place you can develop, grow, and be saturated in the life giving refreshing water of His Word, where our anointed instructors release the Now word of the Lord to the Body of Christ and are some of the most brilliant five-fold ministry leaders in the world! You will be empowered to find and fully experience your life purpose and destiny. Answer the call and become a laborer in the harvest field. Make a decision to enter the race and run towards your God given dreams, visions and goals. Reach for your high calling in Christ Today!
Blessings in your new spiritual adventure at GIBI,
Dr. Brian W. Alton, Chancellor
Rev. Deborah Smith, College Administrator
Reverend Deborah Smith has a Master’s Degree in the Art of Education and is also a Certified Coach. Her passion for the Lord, education and her ability to help others succeed in the body of Christ by utilizing the word of God, makes her the right person to be the College Administrator for this new season. As a Retired USAF Officer, Reverend Deborah is skilled at adhering to regulatory compliance, setting the right structure and atmosphere so that each student can grow, and develop into the man or woman of God they are called to be and to bloom in the area of their passion as directed by the Holy Spirit.
God sent her to Desert Rose Community Church in 2015. She has also served as a greeter, provided one on one ministry to congregational members and preaching when needed. During that time she has sat through many college classes and personally experienced the refreshing water of His word and the outpouring of God’s Glory.
As Administrative Director for the College she works closely with and ministers to the needs of our Chancellor, Students, Instructors, Faculty and members of the Board of Directors.
Her favorite scripture is “Study to show yourself approved into God, a workman who needs not be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth.” II Timothy 2:15 KJV
Pastor Janet Pace, Finances Administrator
Pastor Janet Pace walks in an array of ministry giftings with professionalism gained through practical experience in Ministry and the Marketplace. She serves GIBI as Finances Administrator as well as Pastor and Teacher. She passionately reaches out to her sphere of influence with the heart and anointing of the Evangelist in such settings as men’s and women’s state and federal prisons, Arizona State Veterans Home, Phoenix and Prescott Alzheimer’s facilities as well as several countries on the mission field. Other expressions of Janet’s faith are demonstrated through her singing and songwriting and she released her first CD entitled "The Light setting the captives free."
One of her favorite scriptures is found in Deuteronomy 28:1-14 with a keynote of VS 2: "All these blessings will come upon you and accompany you if you obey the LORD your God."
Our Instructors are Spirit-Filled and Cutting Edge in their giftings and impartation. The Five-Fold Ministry is ALIVE and functioning in these classes, as students receive the meat of the Word in simply designed lessons. GIBI's sensitivity to the MOVEMENT of the Holy Spirit is its greatest asset.
