LITERACY + LEADERSHIP

Would you like to stir up hunger for the Word, while raising up new leaders at the same time? We have options that allow you to do both at the same time.  VI offers two different programs specifically tailored for those who want to know more about God and His Word and for those who God is calling to lead in the Kingdom. 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. Our Biblical Leadership program will equip your prospective leaders to know the Word, lead others in ministry, and experience spiritual transformation. In this program, you or someone on your team will need to participate as mentors to these students who want to lead.

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.
