North Tennessee Bible Institute and Seminary is an unaccredited[1] private Christian college originally based in Clarksville, Tennessee.[2][3] It was founded in 1970-71 by Dr. William Corley, Dr. Roy Neeley and Mary McCraw.[4][5] Corley was president until he died in 2008.[6][7][8] Under Corley's leadership the interdenominational Institute offered 2- and 4-year programs leading to a "ministry license," and preparing students for Christian ministry and missionary work.[9]

The Institute was active in sponsoring tent meeting revivals and interdenominational crusades for Christ.[10]

In 2012 the Institute's property on Martin Luther King Boulevard in Clarksville was rezoned in order to enable it to be sold.[11]
