Kingdom Academy

The Kingdom Academy exists to equip people to live their
lives on mission for God.

“Living a life on mission” means that you continually seek to advance the kingdom of God deeper (in your own life) and broader (in the lives of others). Therefore, the Kingdom Academy is designed to equip you to advance God’s kingdom deeper and broader.

There are three types of training in the Kingdom Academy:

(1) Basic Training, (2) Advanced Training, and (3) Specialized Training.

In Basic Training, we lay a foundation for kingdom advancement. We cover worship, the spiritual disciplines, Christian community, service, and missional living. Advanced Training builds upon that foundation through an in-depth study of Christian doctrine. Specialized Training classes focus on specific areas of life (e.g. marriage, parenting, stewardship, engaging specific people-groups, etc.) and are designed to equip people to do kingdom ministry in each of these areas.

Classes are typically held on Sundays, 6:00 – 7:30 pm.

However, we occasionally offer classes on different nights of the week. We offer classes on a semester-basis with each class lasting anywhere from six to twelve weeks. Registration for classes occurs every January and August. Click on the appropriate tab to see more information on the various types of training as well as to register for current classes.

Basic Training Class

The Basic Training class is offered over the course of two, 12-week semesters. While it works best to take Basic Training Pt. 1 (offered each fall) before taking Basic Training Pt. 2 (offered each spring), it is not absolutely necessary. You may register for Basic Training every January and August. There is no cost for Basic Training.

Not only is Basic Training open for anyone, we encourage all our members to go through Basic Training at some point. Basic Training lays a foundation to equip you to advance God’s kingdom deeper (in your own life) and broader (in the lives of others).

Advanced Training Class

The Advanced Training class is offered over the course of two, 12-week semesters. While it works best to take Advanced Training Pt. 1 (offered each fall) before taking Advanced Training Pt. 2 (offered each spring), it is not absolutely necessary.

You must apply to take the Advanced Training class. You may apply for Advanced Training every January and August. To participate in Advanced Training, you must be actively engaged in a regular area of service or ministry. We prefer participants to complete the Basic Training class before applying for Advanced Training; however, exceptions can be made.

The Advanced Training class is an in-depth study of Christian theology. The class uses Wayne Grudem’s Systematic Theology, during both semesters of Advanced Training. There is a registration fee ($27) that covers the cost of the book. If you already own this book, you do not need to pay for the class.

Specialized Training Classes

Specialized Training classes are offered every semester and can range from six to twelve weeks in length. These classes focus on specific areas of life (e.g. marriage, parenting, stewardship, engaging specific people-groups, etc.) and are designed to equip you to do kingdom ministry in each of these areas.

These classes are open to anyone who would like to participate. You can register for Specialized Training classes every January and August. Some classes have a minor registration fee to cover the cost of a book that may be used in the class.

Some of the Specialized Training classes we offer include:

Marriage Matters
The Art of Marriage
Intimate Encounters
Discipleship Parenting
Biblical Foundations for Parenting
Financial Peace University
