We are all familiar with the Great Commission in Matthew 28:19 to “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit,” but commonly we forget the next verse: “teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” The cry for discipleship and disciple-making is strong right now. However the Great Commission is more than simply, “doing life with each other.” Jesus also commanded his disciples to teach their disciples to be faithful. We must be ready to give a defense for our hope in Christ (1 Peter 3:15) whether we are called to be pastors, real estate agents, coaches, lawyers, nurses, or educators. Life on life ministry is most effective when combined the ability to rightly explain the reasons for our faith.
That’s where the Kanakuk Institute comes into play. If you desire to be a man or woman who is passionate to make an impact for the Kingdom of Christ, why not equip your passion with the skills and the knowledge needed to have a lifetime of ministry? Our goal at the KI is to see you become a leader who not only understands the fullness of your faith but can practically apply it to real world settings. Everything we do is wired to challenge you to grow to the next level of faith where you understand that faith + life = ministry.
