Launch of Founders Study Center

Founders Ministries is pleased to announce the launch of the Founders Study Center–an online academy for ministerial training. The primary purpose of the Study Center is to provide resources for men in the field who are serving in the gospel ministry or pursuing the gospel ministry. We recognize that there are many who are not able to leave their places of ministry in order to pursue or continue ministerial training. Through mentoring relationships and the internet, we hope to bring biblically-sound, in-depth courses of study to those serving God faithfully in the local church and on the mission field. To learn more, go to the Founders Study Center web site at If you would like to receive announcements about the Study Center, please subscribe to our announcement list by sending a blank message to or by submitting the form at
