Mission Statement

The purpose of Rochester Institute of Christian Education is to raise up Spirit-anointed leaders who hear the voice of God, understand the principles of the Bible, and allow the Holy Spirit to apply these principles to the various disciplines of life.

We will guide our students in discovering biblical truths, that they might discover their God-given motivations and giftedness and how to allow the voice, vision, and anointing of God to flow through these motivations and gifts to serve the Kingdom and fulfill the Great Commission: 

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth". (2 Timothy 2:15 NIV)

Spiritual servant-leadership does not and cannot force Christian commitment upon individual lives, but it can nurture an environment in which godliness is enhanced. We ask you to join us in choosing righteous leadership and becoming a righteous leader.

Becoming a leader will stretch you far beyond your wildest imagination, transforming you into a better person than you ever dreamed possible. It is often a painful, yet exhilarating, process. It involves death to self as you surrender more and more of the areas of your life to Jesus and His anointing. It is a road that must be traveled for an extended period of time. Those who do not “quit the race” achieve the reward of becoming Spirit-anointed leaders who witness and disciple within their sphere of influence. Our commitment at RICE is to guide you along this path to your God-directed destination.
