  • What if cost is still an issue?
    The heart of this ministry is to make more in-depth training accessible to as many people as possible. Although our price is only a small fraction of what a seminary would be, we understand that this still may be out of reach for some people. If cost is an issue, please contact us directly so we can see if there is anything we can do to help.
  • How long is this program?
    Storyverse Institute is a 10 unit program. Each unit takes roughly a month to complete (some longer, some shorter). Our cohorts are 10 months long with a break between the Old and New Testament. If you go through the program individually, you can go at your own speed with the recommended pace of 8 months to a year. Those going through the program individually may choose to take longer, but should be careful to not take too long and hinder the effectiveness of the course.
