Is God calling you to vocational ministry? The Foursquare Church offers a number of training opportunities: cross-cultural outreach, short-term missions, children’s ministry and many other in-church service positions.
The Foursquare Church offers the following pre-service training opportunities for future leaders:
Life Pacific College, San Dimas, Calif.
LPC offers associate and bachelor degree programs, online degree completion and distance learning, and an online master’s program.
Ignite Academy, Christiansburg, Va.
Ignite is a two-year residential program. An extension of Life Pacific College, Ignite offers academic training combined with focused discipleship, local ministry and global outreach.
Church-Based Bible colleges, Formal and Nonformal Institutes, and Schools of Ministry
Church-sponsored programs offer affordable ministry training on a variety of levels, ranging from one to four years in duration. Programs generally include academics as well as opportunities for hands-on ministry. There are a number of institutes and schools of ministry for Spanish-speakers, and one institute for people that speak Portuguese.
