Orchard Group Institute (OGI)

Offered in association with Hope International University

The Orchard Group, in association with Hope International University, has developed the Orchard Group Institute (OGI), an intense program in theological and ministry formation for leaders of churches affiliated with the Orchard Group.

The Institute consists of six courses offered at church locations in the northeast United States. Students complete these courses during three sessions of five days each (Monday through Friday), with 18 hours of classroom instruction per course. All courses include pre-class and/or post-class reading and writing assignments.

The Orchard Group will conduct its first Institute in 2008-2009. Afterwards, it intends to offer this training program every other year - that is, in 2010-2011, 2012-2013, and on into the future.
