Life Coaching Program

Each day, a number of individuals meet the world head on only to feel embattled, scarred and fruitless at rising above the challenges that stand in the way of them meeting their personal and professional goals. All too often, they have given up hope and have resigned themselves to a life of helplessness, misfortune and failures.


Because of the dreams and the hopes of a committed church, a program created to help those in need has emerged. Manifest Theological Institute (MTI) has established a Life Coaching Certification Program with a goal of shaping and equipping students with the skills necessary to guide others down a path of realizing their personal and professional goals.

Pastoral Studies

The Pastoral Studies program at Manifest Theological Institute is designed to teach believers about the five-fold ministry office of the pastor. Those enrolled in this program may or may not be called to the office. Pastoral Studies students will complete 1 – 2 years of required coursework and participate in the yearlong Servant Leadership Internship Program.

MTI believes that preparation for ministry takes place both in the classroom and in the field of service. It is vital to link theory and practice. Instead of learning taking place only in the isolation of the classroom, MTI supports learning happening within the community of faith as the student ministers in a ministry context and reflects on that experience. Pastoral Studies students will participate in a year-long Servant Leadership Internship Program. Throughout the year, students will be exposed to and participate in ministry opportunities centered on evangelism, counseling, missions, and ministry operations.

Required Courses:
Principles of Leadership
An Examination of Biblical Leadership
