What is Ecclesia Academy?
Ecclesia Academy serves the local church by equipping believers to know what they believe and why they believe it. From one-time seminars to year-long learning experiences, EA offers believers the chance to dive deep into the Bible, theology, discipleship, and leadership development.
Why does something like Ecclesia Academy exist?
We believe that the local church is the primary place where God calls and equips believers for every good work (2 Tim 3:16–17). EA exists to equip Christians with Biblical and theological training for discipleship and church leadership.

classes year-round. Varying in length from three to eight weeks, the
topics include Bible, theology, discipleship, and special

Throughout the year, EA will also host
one-time seminars on special topics with local or guest presenters. EA
also offers a year-long pastoral internship.
