VISION- Christian Vocational Training School (CVTS) is committed to teaching and learning. Classes were originally developed to provide ministry training for trained five-fold ministers in the church. This initial phase of CVTS was to satisfy Ephesians 4:1 (KJV), which encourages us to “walk worthy of the vocation wherewith [we] have been called.” However, over time, classes have been developed to meet various other needs of members of our local church community.
MISSION- Christian Vocational Training (CVTS) is a small, private Christian school that offers training for adult men and women to realize and advance their Christian vocations. We seek to provide biblical education and training that will facilitate the aspirations of Ephesians 4:1. We nurture the life of the heart and the pursuit of truth within our school environment through effective teaching, learning, practice, and development. We encourage the continual development of the character of Jesus Christ in each believer’s life.
APPROACH- In Scripture, men and women devoted their lives to train or “disciple” others who would follow them for a season and eventually lead others. Christian vocational education reflects this type of ministry training. CVTS employs volunteer faculty members with proven proficiency and maturity in their area of ministry who are able to teach through their own experiences—both failures and successes—and become personally involved in the development of each student. The mentoring relationship between faculty and students remains central to this process.
