About The Church Ministries Institute with Volodya
The heart of the Church Ministries Institute (CMI) in Ukraine is to provide theology for every church and for every believer. The CMI has been preparing Christians for local church ministry since 1994 by providing quality theological education and ministry seminars.
Training takes place in Bible schools (at local churches), regional education centers, the international center, and online. After graduates receive a quality education and practical ministry skills, they go on to effectively serve in local churches across Eurasia.
The CMI director, Volodya Nikolaev knows that "No theological training center can replace the local church." And so the CMI distinctives include an emphasis on the local church, focus on church planting, development of practical skills, cooperation with multiple networks of churches and associations, and a value on lifelong learning.
