The Institute’s Vision
We continue to move forward and enlarge our ministry. We are not limited by Ukrainian borders anymore but have branches in Russia and Moldova. We plan to open branches in other countries of the former Soviet Union as well as in Western Europe.
Since IDCL branches are opened in local churches, it is very important for us to have interaction with pastors and administrators. It is for this purpose we hold annual conferences where the Institute’s team shares its vision for the future, new plans and projects. There we also hear comments and wishes of the local directors.
Of course, the primary treasures of the IDCL are its teachers. The Institute’s motto “For the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ” (Eph. 4:12) is oriented towards developing the gifts of Christ for the benefit of the church and its members. We pay special attention to the gift of teacher. In our program we work with teachers from different churches and denominations, but all of them are characterized by their commitment and professionalism, which is enhanced through regular regional and general conferences sponsored by the Institute. Our teachers understand the peculiarities of each church and through their instruction they contribute to the unique atmosphere that exists in the local church.
As with all living things in this world, the Institute keeps moving and developing, ever striving to meet the need of churches in quality education and training, from pastoral ministry to children’s ministry. We invite you to come along with us!
