Equipping Cutting Edge Leaders
Hi VETI Instructors!
This update is also available on video here.
Thanks to all of you who completed the “VETI Faculty Academic Background” Survey. If you haven’t filled it out yet, please click on the link below.
We are excited about what the Lord is doing in the Ministry of Education. Here’s what been taking place:
This summer we broke records for having the largest number of summer enrollments in our entire history! Good job and congratulations on inspiring our students! Normally we have between 300- 470 enrollments in the summer. As of right now, we have 696 enrollments. If at least 4 students enroll in the last intensive of the summer (which takes place this Sat. in Honolulu Hawaii, we will reach 700 enrollments! (No pressure Pastor Tony V.).
Now, let’ work hard to enroll as many students as possible for this fall (which begins next week) Last fall we had 802 enrollments. I know we can do better. Our goal is to have at least 1,000 enrollments each quarter. We have already passed the 1000 enrollment mark before, so let’s do it again.
Not only are we breaking records, we are also making history with the start of Victory Outreach Bible College! (VOBC) To watch the video promo click here: https://secure.myvoi.org/VideoPreview.aspx?id=267 Our first VOBC course started 12 students last week in our LA Campus in VO Eagle Rock. Special thanks to Pastor Ben Garcia (VO El Sereno) and Mike Marquez (VO Chino) for teaching these classes. Classes for the next Campus begin in less than 2 weeks on Sept. 26 in Chino. There is still time to enroll.
If you or someone you know has graduated from VETI (or received at least 2 years of formal Bible training from another recognized Bible school) you qualify to apply for our Bachelor’s of Christian Ministry degree 1 year program. Here are all of the details http://vobiblecollege.org.
Not only do we have 5 campuses in, San Diego, San Jose, Los Angeles, and Chino we also have a 6th Hispanic Campus where all classes will be taught in Spanish in Pomona, Ca. “Cuantos dicen Amen?”
For students who do not live near a VOBC campus, they can also participate by enrolling in our live online campus. This is where students interact with each other along with the instructor in “real-time” face to face a computer (pc or mac or smartphone).
As a matter of fact, we just finished teaching our first live online class from our office in San Dimas directly to Rotterdam, Netherlands. It was a great success. Dr. Tommy did an excellent job teaching Homiletics. We are now planning to teach a second live online class in 3 different locations in Rotterdam this fall. We are excited about the possibilities and potential we have to, “teach all nations”.
Regarding our Master’s degree program, Gorden Conwell has extended the enrollment period for the Master’s program until the first day of class. The first day of class is Wednesday, October 21, 2015. In order to qualify you must have a Bachelor’s degree or be a licensed minister who has completed VETI. The application is here. The first class is from October, 21-24 from 9am-5pm taking place in VO Chino. This is one of the lowest cost nationally accredited Master’s degree in the nation. If you plan to join the Master’s program we need your application before class so reply to this email now or call me asap.
Remember that starting this fall, the 19 courses required to graduate are no longer available as intensives courses nor as summer courses. Make sure to adjust your syllabus and course schedule if you teach any of these classes. Here is the updated Master Course List. The change has been made to increase the amount of time students interact with these important topics as well as to help students prepare for Victory Outreach Bible College and other higher learning institutions. In addition, when students desire to transfer their VETI / VOBC units to other bible schools we want most if not all of their units to be accepted.
Here is the shortcut to all of our VETI Resources (SAVE THIS LINK). All forms, policies, resources, direct deposit forms, reimbursement forms, etc. are available 24/7. http://files.getveti.com.
