Who We Are

Mission Statement

Regional Christian University is a Full Gospel, Bible based, holiness institution of higher education which endeavors to prepare Hispanic young people and adults on both sides of the border to fulfill the Great Commission, regardless of their economic situation. 


Regional Christian University was originally founded as Regional Bible College in January of 1998 in Edinburg, Texas, by Dr. David and his first wife, Ana L. Hoyte, who sadly passed away in 2015.

The College was envisioned to bring needy young people from Mexico to offer them free training for the work of the Lord.  We still seek to be considerate of the financial situation of so many students and are continuing the vision of offering quality biblical higher education through the use of scholarships, donations, and fund-raising.

Moderate fees are paid by those who are able to contribute, but diverse sources of income are in the process of development in order to offset expenses and perpetuate the outreach to underprivileged people who are desirous of receiving theological and Christian liberal arts training.

Both national and international students are now recruited who have a desire to prepare themselves for the work of the Kingdom of God.
