What is Advance Institute?

Advance Institute primarily provides Bible-based theological training through classes, forums, and Bible studies designed to connect the head to both the heart and the hands. The aim of the Institute is to equip men, women, and teens for the work of ministry and to train leaders within the church. The curriculum used in the Institute is accessible and requires no previous training.
"And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ." -Ephesians 4:11-13


Forums are one-time discussions open to everyone. These focused teaching times explore the logistics of how Christianity relates to everyday life.


Classes are open to both men and women. They last between 6 and 10 weeks and explore the relationship between Christianity and culture.

"These courses brought out facts that I have either taken for granted without really thinking about, forgotten, or never really knew. It gave me a deeper appreciation for Jesus."

"We’re learning about the Great Commandment and the Great Commission, and what’s hitting home for me is how they’re connected and how the Great Commandment--if you love the Lord your God with all your heart--will lead you to love others as yourself."

- Ian C.
