Hello. My name is Rita Bosico, director of an exciting Bible Institute in Ada. We have an exciting new opportunity for you and your church that starts February 9th.
We are The Victory School of Ministry, a certified formal Bible institute providing quality training in the Bible, Christian doctrine, history and ministry for dedicated believers in our area. Our vision is to prepare people to be fully-equipped to minister effectively, whether in the local church, a para-church structure, church planting or independent ministry. The educational goal is to transform our students to minister with a balance of the best academic information available used with spiritual empowerment, discernment and maturity.
What's so exciting is that our Institute is in joint relationship with the Oral Roberts University School of LifeLong Education so that people can earn a complete Diploma in Theological Studies in a local and affordable way! The course of studies has been accredited for ORU to offer to Bible Institutes, and can help place a student in advanced standing for earning a degree at ORU if desired. The curriculum is supplied by the ORU School of Theology and Missions and is a good general study for those who want to deepen their knowledge of God's Word and those who want to be trained for ministry. It's a can-do opportunity for real people.
Starting in February, we present the Certificate in Lay Counseling - a great way to train people for roles in counseling, pastoral care, crisis intervention, and marriage preparation and care. Other certificates are part of the future, too. Quick, 19-unit certificates in Christian Education, Missions, Christian Work, and Lay Counseling are possible to complete in one year or less. Imagine that! Let's explore how you, your staff or talented church members might be students -- and perhaps teachers -- in this pursuit. I think you'll agree - this is a great opportunity to grow our people into solid disciples and ready ministers of the Gospel.
Our prices are affordable, too. The minimum payment due is $25 for the application and $55 per class ($20 for the practicum class) due on the first day of classes. Tuition is only $125 for a 3 credit class, $45 for a practicum and $65 to Audit. Books and Study Guides are extra.
So come join us. We're located at Victory Life Fellowship, 1001 Tipton Terrace. That's on Arlington (Hwy 1), 1 block east of Monte Vista. Come casual. Bring some friends. Spread the word. We'll be glad to send you more information if you'd like. Contact my office at 436.2279. We look forward to seeing YOU!
