Empowering the local church
The Masterbuilders Pastors' College is designed to assist local churches in preparing and further equipping pastors and elders for successful ministry roles. Local churches can utilize MBPC in a variety of ways. Here is how it works. If a pastor has a person who is a valid pastoral or eldership candidate who could profit by enrolling in MBPC, he should download an application form (Link is below.) and send it to the Dean, Pete Beck III. Upon approval, the candidate will submit an application to the college, using a downloadable form. (See below.) Upon acceptance, he or she may enroll in the college, as a pastoral-track student or in the eldership track.
Both are two-year programs, which consist of distance learning courses and weekend intensives. The pastoral track includes all courses listed below, but the eldership track can be customized to fit the needs of the individual elder or elder candidate. In some cases, credit may be given to pastoral students for previous work done in another setting, such as with TCOM. This will situation will be approached on an individual basis.
Another option for students is to enroll in the college on an “audit” basis, taking only those courses or intensives, which are best suited for their situation. In this case, no credit will be earned unless the student later enrolls in one of the programs. At that point, previous work will count towards completion. The Dean and local pastor will be involved with the applicant in setting up a customized program. More information, including costs and dates, can be found on the MBTI website or by clicking here. The information for 2010 will be posted once the current school year has been completed.
Pastor Pete Beck III is the acting dean of Master Builders Pastors' College, and the office of Liberty Church is coordinating the enrollment process. If you are interested in attending the school, please ask your pastor to submit his recommendation to the dean. Forms can be downloaded from the tab at the top of this page.
**It is recommended that you use the MS Word document, complete the form on your computer and e-mail it to to the address below. This will save you postage costs and speed up the process considerably. Otherwise, you will need to download either version of the documents, print them, complete them by hand or typewriter and mail them via the USPS. The address is on the form.
If the request is approved after an initial phone interview with the pastor, the student will be asked to submit a student application along with a $25 fee to the same office. If this application is approved by the MBPC board, the student and pastor will be notifed, and you can then enroll in the school.
If you have any questions, please email Pastor Pete Beck III.
