First Baptist Church Garland announces the
Jack E. Schmid Institute


The Jack E. Schmidt Institute of Church Leadership is a program with the express purpose of cultivating, discipling, and training Christ followers who discern a calling to vocational ministry. The aim of The Institute is to send laborers into the harvest of ministry, in accordance with the Lord Jesus’ words in Luke 10:2. Through a series of lectures, written assignments, practical experiences, and personal disciplines, The Institute seeks to foster the calling of vocational ministry in individuals who know that they are called, as well as those who have perhaps always wondered if they are called. We hope to encourage, inspire, and equip the future servants of the Kingdom as they endeavor to steward the ministry of Christ and the mysteries of God.
