Growing your faith and Christian leadership skills should be easier. The Institute for Discipleship has several online educational ministries, including discipleship development for adults, graduate education in Christian ministry, and call discernment for young people.
BeADisciple.com — An online learning platform offering continuing education courses on a variety of ministry, formation, and leadership topics. We have Lay Servant Ministry courses, book & Bible studies, and personal growth classes. BeADisciple makes rich learning experiences and meaningful small group discussion accessible to church leaders and laity wherever they are. Churches and conferences can even partner with BeADisciple to offer classes tailored to their group’s needs.
BeADisciple Academy — A long-term online Bible study and faith-formation program for high school and college-age young people. It’s designed for students who want to go deeper in their faith lives and leadership skills by learning more about God, themselves, and their call. This program has recently been redesigned and is currently undergoing beta-testing.
Timothy Circle — An online hub for young people trying to discern God’s call in their lives, the Timothy Circle also develops and trains “Timothy Mentors” in local churches. Created through a partnership with the Foundation for Evangelism.
Master of Arts in Specialized Ministry — An affordable, high-quality master’s degree for Wesleyan ministry workers in the local church. This online program makes a degree accessible to students no matter their location at a substantially reduced tuition, thanks to underwriting from the Institute. Currently offered with an emphasis in Youth Ministry, with additional emphases coming soon.
