All the Global Church Divinity School courses are sequenced for progression In level of difficulty, from Novice to Mentor. Each course is designed with cutting edge methodology to move you through higher levels of knowledge and application for powerful results. GCDS does not compete with Bible Schools, Institutes or Seminaries. GCDS does not offer ordination of men and women for ministry. The Global Church Classroom provides a state-of-the-art environment for individualized courses, community cohorts and face-to-face learning taught by key Christian leaders from around the globe.
The GCDS curriculum is comprised of seven ministry training tracks, each with seven levels of learning, for a total of forty-nine learning modules available to each student. The seven ministry tracks are Preaching, Teaching, Healing, Story, The Arts & Imagination, Christ Formation and Contextual Semiotics The seven levels of learning within each track are Novice, Apprentice, Specialist, Docent, Maven, Master and Mentor. While the courses within each ministry track do not have to be taken in a specific order, all seven levels of learning are required to complete the track.
The GCDS approaching the learning process from a pragmatic viewpoint. Rather than teaching everything that there is to know on a particular topic, each global teacher has presented the very essence of the topic’s most important concepts. He/she has provided wisdom, knowledge and application from life experiences and from personal study intended to provide dynamic outcomes for pastors everywhere.
Over a ten-year period, the Global Church Network® hosted strategic summits in every world region, with more than 10,000 leaders attending from hundreds of Christian denominations and organizations.
