Fall 2019 Classes

Guest Instructor – Pastoral Care (James Littles, Chad Flowers, Wayne Weathered, & Other District Pastors)

Ministry of the Apostles I (Gordon Hikel) // A careful study of the Apostles’ ministry will reveal how their doctrine and authority distinguished them from others. You will recognize the relevance for the Church today and will be motivated to become an extension of true Apostolic ministry.

The Life and Ministry of Christ (Steve Schobert) // This course studies the earthly life and ministry of Jesus Christ. You will soon understand and appreciate how He lived and ministered on the earth as both perfect man and perfect God.

Apostolic Patterns and Methods II (John Hargrove) // This class teaches how to transfer a 1st century pattern into a 21st century application. It is a practical look at the principles behind the Apostolic methods of the 1st century, and will help you put them into immediate practice.

To attend, enroll at purposeinstitute.com.

Purpose Institute Vision

The burden of Purpose Institute is to make Apostolic training available anywhere in the world, enabling workers to develop ministry skills and discover individual purpose. The training is designed to raise the quality of ministry coming from every level of leadership—not just those entering full-time ministry. It is training that can happen without interrupting other duties (i.e. family, work, local church ministry obligations). Every believer has a God-given purpose that emerges as they apply themselves to ministry and study to show themselves approved of God. Purpose Institute helps leaders discover and prepare for their purpose—their place in the harvest.

Age Requirement

Purpose Institute requires that students be at least 16 years old.

Academic Requirement

A high school diploma or equivalent is not required to attend Purpose Institute; however, the learning required to achieve high school graduation is certainly an aid to students who desire to perform well. Generally, our students have already qualified themselves on some level as leaders, and therefore a diploma is not a factor. The goal of Purpose Institute is to assist motivated learners in qualifying themselves to better lead the ministries in which they are already involved.

Time Requirement

Most Purpose Institute campuses use a one-weekend per month format which allows students with busy schedules including work, family, and church the opportunity to invest in ministry training. In addition to the 44 hours of classroom training per semester, students must devote time between sessions to read required books, answer review questions, write essays, and to participate in field experience.  Semesters end with testing in each of the subjects.

Pastoral Approval

Students must certify they have their pastor’s approval to enroll in Purpose Institute.
