Resources for Your Equipping Ministry

Are you looking for quality resources to train Christian workers for ministry? iTIM offers workbook-type courses for both Christian growth and ministry, and for the training of bi-vocational pastors. All courses are available for free downloading, or for purchase.

iTIM courses feature a "head", "heart", and "hands" educational methodology, which means:

  • strong academic content
  • personal applications
  • practical ministry suggestions

iTIM courses are designed for small groups. Participants should prepare each lesson in advance of a weekly group meeting. Study leaders use the Leader's Guide to prepare for the 90 minute group discussion.


iTIM, or the Institute for Training In Ministry is a church-based equipping program that will prepare God’s people for works of service.

iTIM is more than an adult Bible study class. It is a virtual Bible institute, designed for and suited to your church.

Every iTIM course will both equip learners for ministry, and involve them in ministry. iTIM will produce church growth because every iTIM learner becomes a minister. He or she is asked to use the content of any course they have completed in ministry to others.

iTIM offers courses on five ministry tracks:

Most courses are 12 lessons; a few are 24 lessons in length. Learners should plan on an hour to complete each lesson, in advance of a weekly group meeting.

The only cost is that of the workbooks and leader’s guides (most are $7.95 and the leader’s guides are $5.95). Nothing more. For more information about iTIM, including how to prepare for and launch an iTIM in your church, download the Operations Manual.


Our desire—indeed our passion—is to see iTIM courses translated into many of the world's languages.
