Introducing MTI: Berkshire & ACGC’s Ministry Training Institute


The Ministry Training Institute (MTI), a cohort-based theological educational program begins THIS MONTH! Over 15 students have enrolled in this local church training program at three sites across the United States. Several International students are also participating!

MTI is a 3.5 year, 60 credit program for training church leaders in any ministry area. Pastors, church planters, missionaries, elders, Sunday school teachers, small group leaders, and more will benefit from its design and structure. Our desire is to raise up Christian leaders who make wise decisions for themselves, their families, and their ministries to strengthen Gospel impact and further the Mission of God.

WHAT IS THE COST?
We desire to keep the financial obligation for this program affordable. The cost is $70/credit. ($4,200 total for the program). Books and Materials are not included in the costs. Financing options and scholarships are available. We also encourage the local church to sponsor students within the program.

CAN I TRANSFER CREDITS?
Transfer of Ministry Training Institute credits into other academic institutions and recognition of the MTI Certificate for admission into advanced programs of other institutions is always at the discretion of the other institution. MTI may develop agreements with various academic institutions (Bible colleges, seminaries, etc.) regarding the acceptance of its transfer credit and for admission to advanced degree programs. Transfer of credit from other institutions will be assessed at the discretion of MTI administration. Credits will be assessed upon the student’s provision of appropriate transcripts and course work samples. It should be understood, however, that because of the unique approach of MTI, the student may still need to complete the associated mentored ministry requirements for each course to receive full credit.

IS SCHOLARSHIP ASSISTANCE AVAILABLE? Scholarships may be obtained from a local church, conference or region. Gift assistance may be possible from a family member or friend.
