ADVANCE learning centers provide courses to train effective Christian leaders in a variety of ministry categories. Through seminary-endorsed training, ADVANCE envisions a leadership explosion among our congregations and a culturally-relevant church for every people group in the United States.


The program's contextualized leadership development approach provides an opportunity to be trained for ministry, church planting, and evangelism. It serves those without a high school or college diploma, those for whom English is a second language, and those with advanced degrees in other disciplines,
