Program Details

WoodsEdge Institute Program 

This transformational experience involves a faculty-taught core curriculum, encouraging mentors that walk with the student, and a cohort-based learning environment. Additionally, specialty elective training is provided, based upon the deployment outcome each person aspires to.

WoodsEdge Institute is for people who have received a recommendation from a pastor or ministry leader and are already individually pursuing their relationship with Christ, leading others spiritually, actively serving in their church and sense a calling to grow in their spiritual influence within the platform God has given them. The program is designed to include leaders who work outside the church with classes held evenings and Sundays.

WoodsEdge Institute is an affordable way to receive excellent, biblical leadership training from gifted and experienced instructors. Upon acceptance, we will notify you of acceptable forms of payment.
