Where is the PRISM classroom located?
PRISM’s classroom is located in Mississauga at Suite 201 – 5200 Dixie Road, Mississauga, ON. You will need to attend one Saturday intensive session per course. 
Who should attend:
PRISM’s courses are designed for Christians who desire to be equipped with biblical knowledge and practical ministry training needed to effectively serve in ministry at their local church.

Although we welcome students that are pursuing a career in vocational (full-time) ministry, our focus is to ensure those serving in the church (elders, deacons, board members, department leaders, administrators, ushers, Sunday school/kids ministry teachers, worship team members etc.) are fully equipped and trained to fulfill their God-given calling.

Our course timelines and tuition structure have been uniquely designed to meet the needs of busy, working families who have budget and schedule constraints.

What do you hope to accomplish?
At PRISM, our desire is to see every volunteer team member at a church, from the parking lot attendant to the worship team member, from the hospitality team to the deacons of the church receive systematic bible training and ministry development.

Here’s why:
An Elder at a  church may become acquainted with someone who is new to the church and from a different faith, we hope our World Religions course will give this person the tools to engage in a meaningful, open conversation with them about why Jesus is the answer with a clear understanding of their religious context and sensitivities.

Often churches reward those who are faithful and committed with leadership positions without ensuring they have adequate training to lead well. Courses like Interpersonal leadership and Christian Leadership Ethics are designed to ensure that the leader understands biblical leadership principles and knows how to create a culture of excellence around them. 

Is there an age restriction?
Anyone over 18 can attend PRISM’s courses.
Is lunch provided during the in-class intensive session?
No. But there are numerous restaurants within walking distance of the school’s location. 
Will there be certification provided?
Yes, you will receive a certificate of completion after each course. 

 

Can I enroll in multiple courses at the same time?
Yes
Do you offer payment plan options?
Yes. You can choose to make your tuition payment in 3 installments. Please email us for more details on payment plan options at prism@passiontoreach.com
