Why We Exist

Christ Academy is an innovative educational platform training men and women to grow in the knowledge of God for the love of God.


Our Mission

Christ Academy provides in-class training and online learning resources that equip the church to live as disciples on mission by knowing scripture, teaching Orthodox theology and leading others to live their lives on mission for God.


Courses of Study

There are three primary courses of study:

  •  Theology & Biblical Studies
  •  Leadership & Teacher Training
  •  Faith & Family Matters

Christ Talks

Christ Talks are a series of eight-minute lessons designed for people seeking in-depth teaching within an abbreviated format. Think of it as the YouTube channel for Christ Academy. Each lesson features a compelling video that gets right to the core point and a series of questions for the student to process at the end of each lesson.


Christ Courses

Christ Courses are designed for people who desire the traditional, comprehensive and in-depth study experience you receive in the classroom or from conventional online courses.  Each one has been taught to students in the classroom, then recorded and made available through the Christ Academy Learning Platform.  Typically, they are 4-6 weeks long.
