That's right, you can be "one in a million," according to the vision given by God to Dr. Joseph Kostelnik--to train one million believers for the ministry, who will also use what they've learned to train others!

Course Information

New Course Updates & Material!

We've made some big changes to our second and third courses!

The book Prayer in the Spirit: The Missing Link is now part of the Diploma in the Deaconate course! It's been added to the end of the course, as we want its teachings to reach more people as we encourage believers to receive and enjoy the blessed gift that the Father offers to all His children through the Promised Holy Spirit!

In addition, Dr. Kostelnik's newest book, The Lord's Supper: The Miracle, Mystery, and Majesty of "Real Presence", has been added to the Diploma in Ministry course, in place of the now moved Prayer in the Spirit book! The doctrine of the Lord's Supper is another blessed gift of God to His church, and Dr. Kostelnik wants to make its teachings a vital part of study for anyone seeking to walk in the fulness of ministry for and to the Lord Jesus.

If you have already registered for these courses in the past, we encourage you to download the updated copies below and study them again. The exams have been updated to reflect the new material as well!

If you've yet to register for them, then we're excited for you to see them once you choose to take those courses!

Above all, may you be filled with the fulness of the blessing of the Gospel of Christ Jesus!

Taking Our Courses

In-Depth Material

These courses are full of both doctrinal teaching and practical applications for the ministry. Many of our students have testified that they learned more from these three courses than they did in a four-year Bible college degree program!

We share that kind of testimony to let you know what you will be receiving. Dr. Kostelnik has taught similar courses for other schools, which were priced at several thousand dollars per course.

You are getting this teaching online for free!

"As you go, preach, saying, 'The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!' Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, and cast out demons. Freely you received, so freely give" (Matthew 10:7-8).



Our primary option is to give you online access to our courses, without charge. We now make them available exclusively as PDF files. A PDF (Portable Document Format ) file allows us to put online the same course that we make available in printed format. You may download a free program to view and print PDFs by clicking here.

This also makes it easier for students to download the course for offline viewing and/or printing, giving you, the student, the ability to print only certain pages, or go directly to the last page you read.


Our secondary option is to send printed courses to you via postal mail. As this entails more costs than the online option, we recommend this as a backup option, if you do not have regular or reliable Internet access.

Solution Graphics

There is a fee of US$25 for the printed versions of the courses, to cover our costs of printing, materials, packaging and postage, but we also offer partial or full scholarships to those who truly cannot afford to pay the small fee.

99% of our correspondence students do not pay for the courses, as they often come from third-world countries, live on small fixed-incomes, or may even be studying from prison. This is to let you know that we receive almost no support from our students as we provide this material freely to all who request it.

Regardless of which method you choose, we pray that God will bless your mind as you read, granting you everything you need to absorb the wealth of His Word, as you study these courses!

The Time Necessary

Once you have registered for a course, we require that a minimum of seven full days must elapse before you may take the exam or register for the next course.

This is to ensure each student actually studies the material, and doesn't attempt to register for the next course right away while skipping the previous one.

Thank you for your understanding concerning this requirement, and we encourage you to take the time to fully study all the material.

Optional Exams & Diplomas

For those of you who would like a reminder of your diligent studies of our courses, we offer optional exams to receive diplomas in two ways, printable electronic (PDF) and in-house printed, both of which are suitable for framing.

Each course's exam will cover the breadth of the material, giving you opportunity to refresh your mind and be sure that you understood the fundamentals of each lesson.

Reminder: Our courses are not secularly accredited, and these diplomas do not give degrees. If you're applying to any schools that count non-accredited lessons toward their requirements, you're welcome to point them to our website so they can see what you've studied. But, we do not issue transcripts because we are not a secularly accredited school, rather we're simply providing teaching from the Word of God to help prepare you for Christian life!

Our primary option for taking an exam is directly online, which will give you immediate grading as well as show you which questions you marked incorrectly along with brief explanations and the relevant course page numbers.

We also have the exams available as PDFs, for printing, if you cannot take them online for some reason. Those will be manually graded by our dean and returned to you.

If you score a 70% or above on an exam, you will be eligible to receive a diploma.

Electronic Diplomas (PDF)

Electronic diplomas are automatically granted and generated when a student scores a passing grade on an exam.

These are issued free of charge and will be immediately available for viewing and/or download once the exam is graded with a passing score.

The file format will be a PDF, so you may save the file for your records and later viewing and/or print it yourself.

In-House Printed Diplomas

Our printed diplomas are issued on a special parchment-style, 8.5x11" standard-size paper, and a goal foil seal stamped with our ministry's name and location is affixed on the lower left.

PVI Diploma Example

We ask for a small fee of US$10 simply to cover our costs of diploma & packing materials and postage.

Once the fee is received, your printed diploma will be processed. Please allow up to 4-6 weeks for its issuance, depending on our ministry schedule, but we often are able to send them within a week or two.

If you register for the next course right away, we will often wait for you to complete that course and its exam as well, sending the printed diplomas at the same time to save on postage/packing (unless you request them to be sent right away).

Additional Teaching & Beyond!

These three courses are only the beginning!

They serve to provide a firm foundation in the faith--their author, Joseph Kostelnik, has also written 20+ books and preached thousands of sermons about various biblical subjects, covering many things not found in the courses.

Please take advantage of that additional teaching whenever convenient by freely downloading our books (or ordering printed copies) and listening to past audio sermons.

You may also keep up to date with our ministry by watching our church's services live on Facebook and subscribing (free) to our YouTube channel to watch higher quality videos of past services.

We pray all of it will be used to bless and buid you up in the Lord Jesus Christ!
