Class Expectations

At The Institute, our prayer is that God would not only teach you more about Him but also transform you from the inside out. As usual, we ask each student to arrive on time, be prepared and be present at ALL scheduled classes. Some of the best learning comes from conversations had by students in the classroom. In addition, you might have reading assignments that will need to be completed at home.

The spring semester will be from 02/05 through 04/15. Classes vary in length, time, location and costs. Snacks and childcare are provided each week throughout the semester.
