Purpose Institute exists as a service to local churches and districts both in
North America and internationally. Its goal is to create better access to training
and a substantial tool for local pastors to offer a person the kind of training
necessary to advance him or her as a local church minister, worker, or leader.
Many pastors can also receive the ministry education they missed at a younger
age. Most church workers do not have the privilege of leaving their local area
to attend a traditional Bible college. If they do leave, they usually remove
themselves from their fields of labor that may be producing substantial results.
They also distance themselves from the day-to-day influence of natural mentors.
Purpose Institute wants to give people training who need to stay in their local
churches and fields of labor. Purpose Institute is a way to sharpen the sickle
without leaving the field.
