The High Pointe Institute (HPI) is a one-year (two semester) discipleship program meant to offer a pathway for growing disciples to be equipped for ministry both in the church and the world. The goal is to form mature disciples who are growing in their knowledge and love for God, who take ownership of High Pointe’s ministries and mission, and who are committed to helping others follow Christ. This program will instill a commitment to Scripture and a better grasp of the biblical storyline, a solid foundation in Christian doctrine, and an increasing ability to connect theology to one’s life, worship, and mission.
What will be taught?
Utilizing categories from Michael Horton’s Pilgrim Theology, HPI organizes its subject matter under four headings: Drama, Doctrine, Doxology, and Discipleship. Together, these four headings offer a robust framework in which to pursue theological formation and discipleship. There is no cost for the class, but participants are required to buy their own books.
Who is HPI for?
HPI is designed for growing disciples of Christ who desire to be equipped for ministry and mission in whatever context God has placed them. All men and women are encouraged to participate. HPI is designed with High Pointe members in mind, but it is not limited to members.
When does HPI take place?
HPI classes take place on Wednesday nights from 6:30-8:30 pm during the fall and spring semesters. Each semester is 14 weeks.
What are the expectations for participants?
- Attendance and class participation
- Cohort discussions
- Assigned reading
- Field assignments (spiritual disciplines, discipleship, evangelism interviews)
