Welcome to the 2018 Semester

 

The Underground Institute is an eight-week training platform designed to give missionaries seminary level education within a missional framework. Throughout the entire catalog we offer a variety of courses that all represent the manifesto in some way, and each summer semester is a sampling of this course list. These classes are organized to inspire, inform, equip and empower missionaries, both locally and globally, to better do ministry in their current context. The Institute runs like a typical college class might, incorporating homework, quizzes, tests, papers, assignments, and projects.

We're excited to offer several features in the Institute this summer. Here is a quick glance at them:

Take a look at the courses

This summer, we're offering 6 different courses. All courses will be taught from/to a missionary perspective and within a small (micro) church context.

Get to know the semester options

The summer can be a difficult time to reserve 8 full weeks to take classes. So, this summer we'll be offering our 6 courses in different semesters to hopefully better fit your summer rhythm. There will be 3 semesters, each with their own unique time frames throughout the summer.

Summer Semester: June 4th - July 20th
June Semester: June 4th - June 29th
July Semester: July 2nd - July 20th
