Watermark Institute

Preparing Tomorrow’s Church Leaders

Do you feel called to serve in vocational ministry? We can help you take the next step.

The Watermark Institute is designed to strengthen churches everywhere by investing in their future leaders—people like you. The Institute allows you to gain hands-on ministry experience and in-depth biblical instruction within a community of like-minded Christ followers.

Because it is an investment in the church, we provide the Institute at no cost to you, and even help cover some of your living expenses during the 10-month program.
