Bible Training Institute

Bible Training Institute

The New Zealand Bible Training Institute, shown here at its original site on Auckland's Queen Street, was founded in 1922 and trained hundreds of young men and women as overseas missionaries. In 1961 it moved to a new site in Henderson, West Auckland. In 2008 it was renamed Laidlaw College in honour of Robert Laidlaw, the founder of the Farmers' Trading Company, who chaired the board of the Bible Training Institute for 20 years.
