Spring 2019 Classes

Introduction to the Word of God (James A. Littles, Jr., Ph.D.) // This study of the five books written by Moses will give the student a historical, legislative and spiritual look at just how much God loves and desires a relationship with His people. The goal is to understand and recognize God’s hand at work through history, and to learn from the experiences of our forefathers.

The Importance of Apostolic Doctrine (Pastor Steve Schobert) // Apostolic Doctrine…what is it?  It is the foundation of the Church and all true Apostolic Ministry.  This class teaches its importance and why it must not be compromised or minimized. The goal is to give students an understanding of the importance of staying true to the doctrine handed down from the Apostles, who were taught directly by Jesus Christ.

Apostolic Patterns and Methods I (Pastor John Hargrove) // The phenomenal results of the 1st century Church cannot be questioned.  They established a pattern that we are to follow, but what was it and what were the methods of evangelism they used?  You will be inspired to discover just how simple their methods were. The goal is to take a close look at the characteristics of the early Church which resulted in the rapid spread of the Gospel.

Leadership I (Frank Starkey, V.P. of Training and Master Trainer at Dale Carnegie) // This is a cutting edge study, teaching the foundational principles of leadership.  You will discover that there are five very important keys to effective church leadership.  A violation of any one of the five will greatly hinder the leader’s ability to be effective. The goal is to help students understand and develop the characteristics needed to be an effective leader.

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.
