The Leadership Institute

The Leadership Institute

This summer, we are excited to introduce Origins, an in-depth study of the doctrine of creation, which entails the theory of evolution, and alternate views.  

Free online classes are the wave of the future and will enable spiritual maturity, which is the focus of every disciple of God.

What is it?

The Leadership Institute is the groundbreaking new partnership that links the church and university together with an innovative system of delivering graduate-level education directly in and through your local church.

How It Works 

Piedmont International University offers its ministry course videos to local churches at no charge.  An individual, Sunday school teacher, or community group leader may access these materials.

If some one desires to go a step beyond learning for personal enrichment, he or she may enroll in the Master of Arts in Ministry program at Piedmont International University.   This program is a 30 credit hour program consisting of 10 classes.

The graduate-level tuition is only $99 per credit hour.

Graduate students may join the group that meets on campus at Triad Baptist during the semester.  Meetings are not required, but provide additional opportunities for in-depth discussion and learning.  Enrichment students taking courses for non-credit are encouraged to attend the group meetings as well.  There is no cost for enrichment students taking the course.By following the normal sequence, a student can earn an accredited Master of Arts in Ministry degree in as little as three and a half years for less than $3,000 of total tuition. Upon successful completion of the program, students can come to campus at Piedmont in Winston Salem and march at commencement to receive their diplomas.

What about those who don't have a bachelor's degree? An enrichment option is available for those not seeking a master's degree and is perfect for Sunday school teachers, small group leaders, and those interested in preparing themselves for deeper ministry opportunities.
