INCREASING BIBLICAL LITERACY

Are you looking to create a sense of hunger in your people for the Word of God?  VI offers a program that is for everyone…our Biblical Studies courses will greatly increase the student’s knowledge of the Word along with experiencing Spiritual Formation in their lives.

What level of engagement do you desire with your students?

We know that not every pastor has the same amount of time and resources available so choose what works for you and your staff. We have outlined 3 different levels for you to choose from based on your bandwidth and resources. Your interaction can range from just promoting VI in your weekend services and newsletters to being deeply involved in the life of your students. Let us know if you have any questions…we are here to help you choose which level is right for you. Email us at This email address is being protected from spambots.
