Resources for Your Equipping Ministry

Are you looking for quality resources to train Christian workers for ministry? The Institute for Training In Ministry or iTIM, is a virtual training institute, designed for use in your church. iTIM has 18 workbook-type courses and Leader's Guides, that will help you equip God's people for a variety of church ministries—including the training of pastors.

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

  • strong academic content
  • personal applications
  • practical ministry suggestions

iTIM will produce growth in your church because every iTIM learner is given a course-related practicum—thus equipping learners for ministry, as well as involving them in ministry.


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 in length, three are 24 lessons. Learners should plan to spend an hour or more to complete each lesson before each 60-90 minute weekly group meeting.

Most workbooks are $7.95 and the leader’s guides are $5.95.

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