What is AIM Institute?
The church of our Lord Jesus is on the move! Leaders who are prepared to equip are needed! AIM Institute, a ministry of Alliance International Ministries, is the tool we are building to respond to this opportunity. AIM Institute is designed to provide ministry and theological education to persons preparing for or currently serving in Christian ministry.
Our mission is to provide a curriculum of courses taught by AIM Ministers representing our vision, values and convictions provided at an affordable price on a hybrid distant learning platform which enables students to learn from home.
- While AIM Institute values academic excellence, it is our conviction that it is not only possible, but often advantageous, to prepare practitioners for ministry without following the traditional institutional model. That is to say, students may achieve greater academic excellence, and a higher degree of professional competence and proficiency as a result of an individually formulated and personally administered theological education.
- Our non-traditional approach to training / education does not fit into the traditional accreditation paradigm. AIM Institute is not an accredited institution, nor does it seek to be at this time. No accredited diploma or degree is offered directly by the Institute.
- The value of this program is found in the quality of the material provided and the impartation of Godly instructors.
- AIM Institute values academic achievement. We do not use our lack of accreditation, nor a non-traditional and non-institutional approach as an excuse for poor academic standards. AIM Institute recognizes that students achieve academic excellence when standards are set. The value of high academic attainment begins with the selection of our faculty, each of whom has achieved significant academic and professional recognition.
AIM Institute maintains an open enrollment policy. Anyone meeting the admission requirements may enroll for individual courses for personal enrichment or to meet personal study goals. We encourage students to work with one’s pastor or mentor to develop a goal base program of courses.
Students begin by examining the course syllabus which will provide and introduction to the instructor, course requirements and schedule and then filling out an application form.
Application forms for each course will request a personal testimony of being born again and pastor recommendation.
Complete the course application on the AIMI website and submit. You will be contacted by the Institute office with further information.
