Training the next generation of leaders is an essential part of what the Evangelical Center is about. The Vocational Training Center seeks to provide a learning environment where younger leaders not only acquire knowledge and skill but are also shaped by fellowship with other believers who devote their lives to building God’s Kingdom and mentoring by older, more experienced Christian leaders in their field.
Every believer has received unique gifts and talents from God that they are called to use to build His Kingdom. In order to train men and women to refine their skills and apply them in a Christian environment, a wide range of mission, language and vocational schools will provide a combination of classroom and on-the-job learning opportunities in IT, art & design, media, trades & crafts, and more.
In the first phase, the Vocational Training Center will be located in the U-shaped building right at the main entrance gate to the Evangelical Center. The three story buildings with two wings will offer some 50,000 square feet of space.
In a second phase, the Vocational Training Center will enter the four large H-shaped buildings with study, work and living capacity for several hundred people. With more than 600,000 square feet of combined space, they include apartments, offices, classrooms, conference rooms, common areas for fellowship and a large dining hall in a fifth building in the middle that connects the other four.
