Office of Ministry Studies

MinistriesEducation › OMS

The Office of Ministry Studies assists in the development of local-church leaders through training that focuses on Great Commission, disciple-making ministry. Our courses encourage the development of leaders who give evidence that they are called to plant and grow healthy Great Commission churches. Our ministerial path provides training for those who are called to the ministry in mid-career, and for those whose first language is not English.

Our Goals

  • To promote leadership training in every Alliance church.
  • To help the local church to equip “God’s people for works of service.”
  • To provide the means for people to hear and respond to God’s call to ministry.

Ministerial Study Program
