What is WIN Institute?
The WIN Institute provides the structured Biblical teaching and training
for Celebration Church. 
The Institute includes a structured 3-year certificate program in which enrolled

Celebration Church's Next Step System.
Whether you desire a systematic certificate program or want topics of study and
training in specific areas, the WIN Institute is designed to accommodate your
needs and aid you in growing spiritually.
To help people to "win in life" through preparing, learning, understanding, and applying the principles in The Holy Bible, thus equipping them to take their next step(s) toward Christian maturity.



Helping People Win in Life through an in-depth knowledge of The Holy Bible

On behalf of our Senior Pastor, our Pastor of Discipleship, our staff and faculty, we are committed to offering quality Christian courses specifically designed for your growth, development and maturity in the Body of Christ. Our course curriculum is twofold:

(1) We offer 43 Celebration Church courses that coincide with our 'Next Step System' and compliment our 5 "M's": Membership, Maturity, Ministry, Mission and Magnification. These are many of the same courses that were offered through the Bible Training Center, plus new ones.

(2) We offer 21 courses through the Evangelical Training Association's (ETA) widely accepted curriculum. ETA is celebrating 76 years of service to churches, seminaries, and Bible colleges/universities worldwide. These courses will teach you Bible and Theology, broaden your Ministry Skills, sharpen your Outreach Skills, and develop your Leadership Skills. In parallel, you will earn up to four (4) ETA Church Ministries Certificates - Foundational, Standard, Advanced, and Leadership - as you progress through a series of four courses each in the overall curriculum. These certificates are recognized globally and also qualify you to teach as an ETA-certified instructor, if you desire to do so. You will also earn a certificate of completion from Celebration Church's WIN Institute at our official commencement exercises.

We look forward to serving you during this exciting time in our church. As you study, meditate, pray, and seek God's will for your life, the leadership team and staff at WIN Institute will remain committed to meeting your specific needs through excellence in ministry.


Enjoy God's blessings and WIN!
