If you feel that God has called you to ministry, your first step is to prepare yourself to do the ministry to which God has called you. The Our Generation Training Center is uniquely designed to provide the training you need.
From the mentorship to the ministry opportunities, every aspect of the OGTC is designed to prepare you. Due to the module based structure of the Training Center, you can begin at any time during the year.
What are you waiting for? There’s a world that is waiting to hear the Gospel. Your time is now.
– JASON HOLT | MISSIONARY IN SANTIAGO, CHILE
We are indeed honored that you would consider the Our Generation Training Center as your place of preparation. The heartbeat of God and of those of us at Vision Baptist Church and the Our Generation Training Center is to reach the world with the gospel message in our generation.
I believe with all of my heart that you could go to no better place to get hands-on training for the ministry. Here the philosophy of ministry will not be so much theory as a way of life. We practice an intense life-on-life discipleship, meaning that we try to disciple the way Jesus did. Christ had an intensely personal interest in relationship with His disciples. This method was good enough for the apostle Paul also, and we strive to follow their practice.
Here you will take academic classes, but much more than that, you will do the ministry. The ministry will cause you to have more questions, pay more attention, and be much more interested in every course of study because not only will you be discussing something you will do one day, you will also be involved in it right now.
I think that it should be made very clear that the Our Generation Training Center is just that – a training center. It’s not a Bible College. We are here to get you involved now in the actual work. We are focused on preparing missionaries to the world, and pastors who will start churches here in the USA.
I hope you will prayerfully consider whether or not the Our Generation Training Center is God’s will for your life. We are here to help you on the way to accomplishing God’s purpose for you.
President & Pastor of Vision Baptist Church
I am excited that our God is working in your life to see what you can do to reach others who don’t have the gospel. No doubt, you have a challenge set before you in considering where you will learn how to be best-equipped for your calling. I pray that the Holy Spirit will give you clarity and peace as you make your decision.
It is an honor that you would consider the Our Generation Training Center as a place where you could learn the necessary skills to be a cross-cultural servant.
The OGTC program is designed to produce excellent servant-leaders. While there are many traditional aspects of the college, the goal is not to create a traditional college graduate. The product the OGTC seeks is a graduate who is well-equipped to step right into ministry and who is already an experienced servant-leader. The staff is committed to only working with a small group of students each year to spend the time necessary to accomplish these goals.
Because the OGTC program has been developed to include personal training, students can complete their degree in two and half years, which includes of six months of on-the-field training.
While the emphasis is placed on world missions and missionary training, the OGTC realizes that not everyone will be going to the foreign field. Therefore, the staff has developed appropriate training in other areas as well. Men training for the pastorate will get the same leadership training and discipleship that missions students do. These students will also benefit from training in a local church ministry that will prepare them for all aspects of starting and pastoring a church in the United States. Ladies will be able to get training for the ministry as well, as there are many different areas of ministry to get involved in. We would love for you to visit the church and school campus, see the ministry at Vision Baptist Church, and have a personal meeting with us.
