Deepen your understanding of ministry, mission, leadership, theology, and scripture with faculty, leaders, and students at Wheaton College Graduate School.

The Church Evangelism Institute seeks to see thousands of churches across the United States and beyond develop conversion communities where many people find their way to Christ and where every disciple of Christ is equipped and mobilized to make new disciples.

Church Evangelism Institute cohort participants can receive up to 10 credits of advanced academic standing in the master’s degree program.
