Our Generation Training Center

Personal Mentoring | Practical Training | Biblical Teaching

 

The Our Generation Training Center (“OGTC” or “Training Center”) is the training arm of Vision Baptist Missions and is supervised by the President, the General Director, and the OGTC Director (“The Administration”).

The Administration helps students in the OGTC acquire the needed mindset, philosophy, doctrine, and training necessary to serve the Lord and, if called by God and qualified, be accepted as missionaries with Vision Baptist Missions. The policies and procedures of the Training Center are developed and executed by the Administration.

More details about the policies, procedures, and practices of the Our Generation Training Center can be found on this webpage or in the OGTC Student Handbook.

From the President

Serving the Lord is one of the greatest privileges in the world. We rejoice that God has called you to serve Him in the area of world evangelism!

Remember that with a call to serve is a call to prepare. The moment you decided to serve the Lord, you made a bold proclamation against the devil. Because the devil will use anything he can to deter you from God’s calling on your life, it is even more crucial that you be properly prepared.

We ask you to consider enrolling in the Our Generation Training Center to be well prepared for the mission God has for you, whether on the mission field or in a church in America. Our graduates have a track record of being well prepared for ministry.

I hope that this website will give you insight into the Our Generation Training Center, the training arm of Vision Baptist Missions. If I can answer any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. Thank you and God bless!

Jeff Bush
VBM President

From the Director

I am excited that our God is working in your life to see what you can do to reach others who don’t have the gospel. No doubt, you have a challenge set before you in considering where you will learn how to be best-equipped for your calling. I pray that the Holy Spirit will give you clarity and peace as you make your decision.

It is an honor that you would consider the Our Generation Training Center as a place where you could learn the necessary skills to be a cross-cultural servant.

The OGTC program is designed to produce excellent servant-leaders. While there are many traditional aspects of the college, the goal is not to create a traditional college graduate. The product the OGTC seeks is a graduate who is well-equipped to step right into ministry and who is already an experienced servant-leader. The staff is committed to only working with a small group of students each year to spend the time necessary to accomplish these goals.

Because the OGTC program has been developed to include personal training, students can complete their degree in two and half years, which includes six months of on-the-field training.

While the emphasis is placed on world missions and missionary training, the OGTC realizes that not everyone will be going to the foreign field. Therefore, the staff has developed appropriate training in other areas as well. Men training for the pastorate will get the same leadership training and discipleship that missions students do. These students will also benefit from training in local churches that will prepare them for all aspects of starting and pastoring a church in the United States. Ladies will be able to get training for the ministry as well, as there are many different areas of ministry to get involved in. We would love for you to visit the training center campus and have a personal meeting with us.
