Ligonier Ministries' History
Ligonier Ministries is an international reformed religious association involved in the teaching and preaching of Calvinism. It all started in the 1970s when Dr Sproul along with a group of Christian leaders opened the Ligonier Valley study center in Pennsylvania, where Christians all over US could attend seminars by Sproul and other evangelists. In 1980s, Ligonier ministries moved their center to Orlando, Florida where Dr Sproul’s books- ‘The Holiness of God’ and ‘Chosen By God’ were published making him an honorable missionary and leader in the Christian community. Ligonier later launched a music division to promote Christian praise and worship and in 2008 introduced their first capital campaign- ‘Here We Stand’ to provide for the construction and set up of a future academy and ministry. In 2009, the Ligonier Academy of Biblical and Theological studies was established in Sanford, Florida, to provide extensive education to pastors, youth and amateur Christians.
