The Latin American Biblical University is related to two United Methodist agencies, the General Board of Global Ministries and the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry. The group included in the calendar is a class from an educational partnership between the seminary in Costa Rica and the higher education agency. The students, along with two professors, traveled to Nashville, Tennessee, for the program that provides study at the master's level.
