AIM Institute has been providing training for Christian leaders since 2003. Our initial tactic was to send our instructors to teach a three-day intensive module in a local church. These intensive courses provided students with the opportunity to prepare for ministry while maintaining busy lives. Unfortunately, this approach provided limited opportunity for assignments and extended contact with the instructor. The Covid lock downs provided the opening to develop a hybrid approach.
Our hybrid approach allows AIM Institute to provide students with classroom and distance learning environments. In our new format, most courses are covered in the traditional semester of twelve weeks.
- Instructor lectures are video recorded. Each week students watch a lecture video at their convenience and complete course assignments. This provides a college level of delivery of instruction.
- A second course requirement is to attend a Zoom video conference meeting with the teacher and classmates each week. This provides a relational opportunity to draw from the experiences and wisdom of the instructor and classmates.

Discover Your Leadership
with Terry King
Tuesday at 7:00 PM (New York Time) | January 31 to April 18
Everyone is leading someone. Effective leadership which has enduring fruit must be based on the foundation of self-leadership. This leadership begins within. This is a Bible-based look at personal identity. Our goal is to equip the student to write a personal mission statement. Several assessment tools will be used, and opportunity will be given for
personal reflection. We conclude with instruction for building an action plan with teaching on goals and scheduling.

This course develops the principles and methods of Bible interpretation. Four methods and five principles are examined. Examples are provided for each. The unique challenges of figurative language including parables, prophecy, types and symbols and poetry are addressed. The course concludes with an overview of Bible study methods.

Discover Spiritual Renewal from Jesus Within
Thursdays at 7:00 PM (New York Time) | February 2 – April 27
(No Class Mach 30)
This course is based on the words of Paul in Romans 8:29. The goal for every disciple is, “To become conformed to the image of His Son.” Rather than starting with a focus on external spiritual disciplines, this course begins by looking at the life of Christ within. Jesus forms a heart for disciplines and perseverance to walk in them. One is inspired to worship, to pray, fast, etc., not because of a commitment on a calendar but by the overflow from Christ within.
