Zion Ministerial Institute… be TRAINED, be TRANSFORMED! 


Students of the Word

One of the main purposes of Zion Ministerial Institute is to train students in the Word of God to become effective leaders, whether in their local church, abroad, or in their own communities. Such leaders must be those who apply the Word in their lives and work in the Kingdom of God, studying to show themselves approved unto God, who can rightly discern the truth.


Preparation for Ministry

Your studies at ZMI will prepare you for a life of great fruitfulness in your appointed calling and ministry, whether at home or to the nations. Many ZMI graduates go on into various forms of ministry, either part-time or full-time, including missionaries, pastors, and other ministry leadership positions.

One of the core principles of ZMI is to prepare students to be worshippers. As students, you will have training and opportunities, both to learn to worship the Lord in spirit and truth, and how to lead others into this pure worship.
