School of Ministry

At MVC, we believe that every person is called by God to be "sent out" as an ambassador of Jesus Christ to proclaim and glorify Him to this World. Each believer is called to their workplace, their neighborhood, their school, their community, and their family with the life-transforming message of the Gospel. For some, their calling will even be to take the Gospel to different places in the Front Range, throughout the US, and even different countries in the world by the multiplication of healthy local churches.

We offer several classes and Bible studies to equip believers for this work throughout the year. Click here to find out more about our upcoming classes & Bible studies


Biblical Foundations

This material is intended to deepen your love for Jesus Christ by helping ground you in foundational concepts of the Christian faith. It is simply amazing to stop and realize that God has chosen to reveal Himself to us. The Word of God is indeed a wonderful treasure, and as a disciple (follower) of Jesus, you will be growing in your love for Him for the rest of your life as you dive into this treasure. On top of that, God wants to use you to help others grow in their love for Him as well. We hope your investment of studying this material fuels your love for Jesus as well as your passion to give these truths away to someone else!
