Welcome to the CM E-Learning Center where you can enhance your biblical
training in the comfort of your own home!
We are committed to Ephesians 4:11-16 which is the nexus of our training program. We offer four
levels of training that are sure to enhance your biblical knowledge. By joining the CM E-Learning
Center Degree Program you will become a part of the Collegium Ministries Leadership Network.
Not everyone is called to a pulpit ministry, but everyone is called! Everyone is called to be a disciple!
Everyone is called to take the kingdom of God into the world! Everyone needs to be equipped so that
they can be a witness in the field of work they are in! No one is exempt from the need and invitation
to become a disciple of Christ and learn of Him! It is for this very purpose that we designed this
program. We want you to become everything you were created to be. You are called to excellence
and you are brilliantly created to fulfill the work for which you were put here in the earth at this time!
The term “equipping ministry” is another term for the five ministries
given to the Church for the purpose of equipping the saints
(discipleship) to enter into the ministry of their created purpose. How
this looks to you and I may be as different as fire and water. In
defining what equipping means, we must go to the intent of the
author. The Apostle Paul had a particular process in mind when he
penned the following verse and we need to find out what he meant
Ephesians 4:11-12 (NKJV)
And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and
teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of
The process the Apostle had in mind was known at that time as “discipleship.” This is just another
word for being a student. However, what did it mean to be a student in Paul’s time period and
culture? The Hebraic culture was very focused on educating the members of their community. There
was a certain expectation that by age 12 or 13 the Jewish child
had a good handle on the Torah. At this age they would usually
decide to go into a vocation or a ministry.
If the choice was ministry, their training would then take them to
the teachers of the Law, if their vocation was a trade, they would
begin an apprentice process to learn their craft. An example of
this is Peter. Peter had the vocation of a fisherman. He had not
been schooled by the teachers of the Law, yet Peter had a
biblical knowledge of the Torah that was significant.
How this played out in Peter’s life is an interesting study.
Apparently, Peter was in the right vocation but the wrong
ministry! Jesus did not change his vocation but He did change
his ministry when He said, “I will make you fishers of men.” After three years of being discipled by
Jesus, Peter was anointed and able to enter into his created purpose. Had Peter said, “No thanks, I
can get there another way,” do you think he would have become the minister that history shows he
There is much to take away from this, but suffice it to say that if we are to enter into our created
purpose we must be willing to go through the process Jesus commanded. That command was, “Go
into all the World and make disciples...” We, as a Church, must transition from making converts to
making disciples. This is what our mission at Collegium Ministries is all about. To bring this process
of discipleship back into the Church where it belongs and where it can be accessed by all the saints.
NOTE: If you desire to be ordained, you will have to attain the age of thirty, and you will have to
establish a local pastor to be your mentor throughout the duration of your training. Your pastor will fill
out a form from our institution recognizing your pastor as your mentor for the duration of your training
period. After you have completed the three years of training, you will be licensed as a minister and
placed in our Collegium leadership network. This will mark the beginning of your internship period. In
order to receive your ordination you will need to correspond with us on a monthly basis for two years
and annually thereafter. This monthly report will explain your activity as a minister, any difficulties you
are facing in ministry, and what are some of the goals you are setting for the next month. We will
evaluate your progress and if your internship was satisfactorily completed (after two years), then you
will be ordained by Collegium Ministries. After your ordination, you will be assigned a staff member
who will be a support
What Will Discipleship Do For Me?
Learn how to maximize your potential through our discipleship training
program that will equip you to contend for the faith. When you increase
in the knowledge of God, it will enhance your life, business, or your
employment by implementing biblical principles in order to bring the
favor and blessing of God upon your life.
This E-Learning Center is designed to bring reason to your faith. In a
culture of moral relativism, secular humanism, post modernism, and
anarchism, there is a vacuum of sound reasoning because there has
been a lack of sound teaching. We as the Church, allowed the removal
of God from the public square which has spawned the alarming
consequence that our children no longer have a sound foundation from
which to measure truth, and many of them even lost their faith in God.
It is therefore our objective to equip Christians so that they would be able to reason with a culture
that is doing what is right in their own eyes. In accomplishing this we will re-establish the truths of
God's Word that has the power to bring this culture to the pinnacle of making a decision of whom
they will serve. This international equipping school for the saints is a resource that is prepared to
meet the needs of this generation worldwide.
It has always been the mission of Collegium Ministries to be a resource that would equip a pastorate
to fulfill their call and destiny. We have a strong resolve to equip those who are disciples to become
adequate to do the good work for which they were created. This is our calling and purpose for
Where Am I Going?
As a student of Jesus you will become a part of our network of saints that are
warriors in the kingdom of God. If you are called to one of the five ministries
found in Ephesians 4:11, upon completion of the four levels of training, you
will be eligible for the ordination program. In the ordination program you will
be under the oversight of a local minister of your choice as you begin to
exercise your gifts. We will work with your pastor and he will decide when
you are ready for ordination.
Why do we want to build a network of leaders? It is our aim to bring leaders
together for the purpose of maintaining unity, vision, and education among
those God has chosen to lead this generation. This crop of leaders has at
their disposal the technology that no other generation has had before. I
believe that God is using this technology to accelerate the education process
As the leaders of this generation begin to access these new tools that are before us, we are able to
generate interest among a tech savvy generation in those principles that are older than humankind
itself. Then we can say as Jeremiah said: "Thus says the Lord, "Stand by the ways and see and ask
for the ancient paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; and you will find rest for your souls..." -

“Since I have come to CBI I feel much more
confident. My self esteem has improved and I
feel prepared to follow the will of God for my life.
The lessons show me who I really am and that I
am called, which uplifts me and causes me to
have hope concerning my future.” --CBI
“God is calling His people to ready themselves
and to take their place not just in the Church,
but in society as well. This world is crying out for
the example of faithfully prepared men and
women of God. "Go out into the highways and
the byways," but how can we unless we are
taught. I want to learn so that I can impact my
world and touch people's lives with the reality of
God's truth and love. I wanna be ready!” --CBI
