Welcome to Purpose Institute at New Testament UPC we are delighted that you have chosen our campus to further your ministry training.  The campus is located 8787 Walker Rd. Shreveport, LA, 71108, just off 3132.  We offer a full range of ministry training coures, and classes are scheduled for the third weekend in every month to accommodate a ministry leader's busy schedule.


Purpose Institute is a ministry training institution which partners with local churches and districts to develop leaders in the Apostolic model.  Purpose Institute provides curriculum and systems designed to enhance ministry training and make it accessible to emerging leaders.

The Vision

The training is designed to raise the quality of ministry coming from every level of leadership not just those entering full-time/professional ministry.  It is training that can happen locally without interrupting other duties (i.e., family, work, local church ministry obligations).  Every believer has a God-given purpose that emerges as they apply themselves to ministry and study to show themselves approved of God.  Purpose Institute helps leaders discover and prepare for their purpose-their place in the harvest.

Course Overview

The Curriculum has been designed to cycle in eight semesters.  A student can begin at any point in the cycle and follow the curriculum through to completion.  Each semester is designed to be a good mix of courses that include a focus on biblical, spiritual, and leadership training.  The curriculum is currently available in multiple languages.  For all available languages, please visit

Courses are offered one weekend a month and are scheduled to begin September 8, 2017.
