Foothills Church is a local campus for Vineyard Institute (VI). Our partnership with VI allows us to offer excellent courses to help you understand and participate in the Kingdom of God – God’s rule, or the expression of himself in the world through love and power. Equipping both theologically and practically is important for anyone who is serious about the call to Christian ministry (Ephesians 4:11-13).

VI offers courses in the following areas:

  • Biblical kingdom theology
  • Leadership theory and praxis
  • Practical ministry experience

Practical Orientation 

The study year is divided into quarters (Q1, Q2, Q3, Q4).

Students can register for a range of courses to study individually online and/or for a selected “hub course”. The hub course offers an opportunity to study in a collaborative group environment with a mentor if there is a sufficient number of people taking the course. 


Vineyard Institute courses: $US140 per course for Foothills students (subject to change by VI).
