We understand that the path leading into full-time ministry, whether here in the States or globally, can be difficult; the cost of education and the length of preparation time with traditional approaches can be a deterrent. Our dream is to see hundreds of leaders called to serve, field-ready and debt-free.
Two Alliance Northwest churches are beginning to make that dream a reality. Salem Alliance Church launched Reach Training Institute (RTI) in January of 2014; and Snoqualmie Valley Alliance launched Bible Institute of Seattle (BIOS) in the fall of 2015. Both programs provide affordable and accessible training options set in the context of the local church. As educational partners with Crown College in Minnesota, both RTI and BIOS are developing highly effective leaders through theological education and practical ministry experience for kingdom service, internationally and locally, at the lowest possible cost. They offer fully accredited and affordable Bachelor of Ministry degrees in a cohort model that encourages learning and growth in a community-based environment.
