Classes

The New Birth (James Littles) // Jesus said, “You must be born again.” This class teaches the essentiality of the new birth as recorded in John 3:5 and exactly what is required to be born again. The goal is to give students a thorough understanding of the elements of the new birth and why each is essential.

Epistles (Steve Schobert) // Epistles are “letters,” and letters have always been an effective way to communicate. God chose letters to effectively communicate His will and purpose to His Church. This course is designed to give a summary of each letter. The goal is to understand the important principles God chose to communicate to His Church through the writing of the Epistles.

Equipping the Apostolic Minister (John Hargrove) // There are many preachers, but not many ministers. The primary focus of the Equipping the Apostolic Minister series is to bring balance to both the spiritual and the practical aspects of ministry. Level 1 primarily deals with the call to ministry, and exactly what that means. The goal is to help the student become aware of the responsibility that rests on a God-called minister.

Leadership – (Frank Starkey) // This course strives to stretch the leader to a high level of understanding and ability as a leader. Because of the uniqueness of our times, you will be challenged to accept nothing less than a standard of excellence. The goal is to help students understand and develop the characteristics needed to have excellence in leadership.

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.
