WoodsEdge Institute exists to equip servant leaders to advance the Kingdom of God through the local church.


God’s Word tells us we are called to make disciples and that pastors and teachers in the church are called to equip the saints to do that work. While formal education has great value, we believe that the time and cost should never be a barrier to people in the church being equipped to be effective in ministries. We|Institute is for those who are either already engaged in discipling others or have a desire to be equipped for ministry. The Institute exists not just for learners, but doers of the Word.
