There are so many ways you can use BiblicalTraining. Here are some of the possibilities.
|New follower of Christ||Life is a Journey was specifically designed for you. Please find someone who will walk with you ("mentor"), and be sure to download the workbook. It will give you a little something to do every day to help you start your spiritual journey walking in the right direction.|
|Lay person||If you are a follower of Christ and want to grow up spiritually, then the Foundations curriculum is for you. You don't have to take all the courses, but you should take the recommended ones. Even if you have been a Christian for some time, we highly recommend starting with Life is a Journey.|
|The curious person||If you are just curious, you may enjoy viewing all our classes and just explore.|
|Church leadership||If you are moving into a leadership position in the church, there are three stages to your preparation. (1) You should have attended Life is a Journey. As a leader, you will be walking with new believers, and so you need to have experienced the content already. (2) Then you should complete the core classes in Foundations. (3) There are specific seminars just for people in Leadership; these should be taken either before you become a leader or certainly taken as a group of leaders together.|
|Bivocational pastors||The church is exploding outside the United States, and many pastors are leading churches who have been Christians less than a year. The core classes in Foundations will help you prepare for ministry, and some of the seminars will hone in on specific needs you will experience.|
|Seminary student||The BiblicalTraining Institute has sometimes been called "the best seminary you can't attend." We hand-picked the top professors from over 15 graduate schools. The core ten classes is where you begin. We are discovering that many schools are actually awarding credit if you attend these classes and can pass their competency exams. We are working to solidify this benefit and will alert you to when we have something concrete.|
|Pastor||One of the greatest features of BiblicalTraining is that you can pick and choose the classes you want your people to attend, and even add in your own. This allows you to create a curriculum that is perfect for your cultural setting, and then we provide a landing page for your home on BiblicalTraining. You can see a sample here, and here is more information, and here is where you start.|
