LANSING CAMPUS GENERAL OVERVIEW
Ministry Development & Training (MDT) in Lansing is called the SEAL Academy: (Spiritual Education and Leadership). This comprehensive training program was first used for ministry training in the Minneapolis-St. Paul Church of Christ. It is open to disciples of Jesus Christ in the Great Lakes region.
The SEAL Academy educates and trains students that want to grow in their Bible study skills and discipleship by providing challenging courses taught by qualified teachers and evangelists from within the ICOC family of churches in our effort to edify the ongoing mission of the kingdom of God to teach the kingdom of God to the people of all nations.
SEAL Academy prepares disciples for ministry in God’s kingdom through a variety of methods including individual study, interactive group work, and classroom training. The courses cover a variety of subjects designed to provide the student with a broad background of biblical and ministry training at an undergraduate level.
