New Educational and Ministry Training Opportunities Available through Acquire!
Acquire, Open Bible’s newest learning platform, is a growing, robust leadership development resource center now available to our Open Bible family. This online treasure trove is the perfect place to find these resources:
- Tools/courses for completion of specific ministerial credential requirements
- Open Bible orientation for credential applicants
- Continuing education for currently credentialed ministers
- Leadership resourcing and training of church leaders
Today’s marketplace for ministry education demands fresh perspective, information, and insight to measure and understand cultural realities and to minister to contemporary needs. One of today’s cultural realities is the challenge of people needing to uproot from their jobs, homes, incomes, and families to move to a traditional campus to study. With Acquire, people can learn right from home.
Additionally, amassing the debt associated with traditional ministry education can burden graduates with debt equivalent to a mortgage prior to assuming entry level ministry responsibilities. It simply is not feasible for a traditional Bible college graduate with a huge debt load to find a ministerial salary to accommodate that debt, leaving fewer ministerial candidates able to answer God’s calling to “the least of these.” Augmenting INSTE Global Bible College and Open Bible’s certified schools of ministry, Acquire provides access to excellent training materials for a nominal fee. Many resources are free. Through Acquire, students learn from seasoned ministers who have become skilled and effective ministry leaders. The number of Acquire’s online courses will continue to expand in the future.
Technology and accompanying adjustments in educational and training methodologies now bring ministry preparation and church leadership training as close as a local church and home computer. Whether you are a church leader wanting to develop your skills or someone interested in earning ministerial credentials, Acquire has something to offer you!
