Text-Driven Institute is a ministry of Fellowship Church. The Text-Driven Institute is a platform designed to provide accessible, text-driven education to those in the pew and the pulpit. We pray these various courses and curriculum equip, encourage, and edify you as you seek to live a text-driven life in your home, work, and public square.
"And what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also." - 2 Timothy 2:2
Text-Driven Institute (TDI) is a 36-hr program designed to “entrust to faithful men” the gospel who will then be the pastoral leaders in Fellowship Church. We believe that each local church has been directed by God to equip their next pastor. Much in the same way that Paul provided tutelage to Timothy and taught Him the Faith, so too should the Pastors of Fellowship Church be doing the same with fellow members who are aspiring to the office of overseer.
When are classes offered?
Classes for TDI are offered in a Fall and Spring semester format. At least one class is taught each semester.
How do I enroll in Text-Driven Institute?
Anyone is eligible for taking the classes because we believe that providing an in-depth study of Scripture will be edifying for all believers. The courses are offered on Wednesday nights in the Fall and Spring. Occasionally courses will be offered in smaller formats in a home during the week.
