Vineyard Institute (VI) is offered at the Desert Vineyard as a distance learning program through its headquarters at the Columbus Vineyard in Ohio. It’s designed to give practical training in ministry and theology to those who God has called to leadership. The “full-time” track consists of seven quarters over two years for a reasonable quarterly tuition. However, other track options are available.

VI is designed to work around a full-time work schedule, but students should expect to invest 15-20 hours per week . Classes are taught by church leaders across the nation, who are eager to impart their knowledge and experience. If you are seeking greater understanding and training in the service to God and his people, it is our hope that VI would be able to fulfill those needs in your life.
