Listen, Learn, Lead


  • Practical Bible teaching through books of the Bible and relevant topics
  • A smaller class size allowing a more intimate setting with staff and Bible teachers
  • Time each week working alongside staff where one-on-one mentoring and discipleship can take place
  • Opportunities to lead first year students (resident assistant responsibilities, planning student events, leading outreaches, etc.)

LTC provides service opportunities to a limited number of students who have completed one year at a Torchbearers Bible School.  Offered as an extension and application of the first year of study, the Leadership Training Course is committed to establishing practical leadership principles in every area of the Christian life.  From personal devotional life to living in community to principles of ministry and work, the students are challenged to take initiative not only in knowing the Word of Life but also in Living the Life of the Word.

The classroom format for LTC will involve lectures from resident teachers, visiting lecturers, local pastors, special guests and ministry workers, video and audio presentations. The Curriculum includes various assignments and ministry requirements. LTC students assist the Ravencrest Staff to make the first-year program as meaningful as possible.  Although fewer hours are spent in the classroom, the study environment is more challenging since more extensive personal research and preparation are required.
