Our courses and resources are available for everyone. We began as a teaching ministry for the Hampton Roads Church and the American Commonwealth Region of churches in ICOC as well as sister churches throughout Australia, Fiji, India, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, and the UK.
We continue to offer resources for congregational teaching and leadership development, including: CrossBearers, DiscipleMakers, NetMenders, eMANcipators, MeatEaters, BodyBuilders, and now Caleb Corps.
CrossBearers establishes foundational convictions for the recently baptized disciple.
NetMenders deliberately employs principles and practices of self discipline for spiritual formation into Christ
DiscipleMakers equips disciples to go and make disciples as they study God’s Word with seekers
eMANcipators provides resources to set disciples free from slavery to sexual sin

BodyBuilders trains young leaders to become more effective Bible Talk leaders who build up the body of Christ
MeatEaters provides solid food for disciples who are ready to deepen their knowledge and application of God’s Word
