About the Academy

The Commonwealth Academy seeks to "equip the saints for works of ministry" (Ephesians 4:12) through deliberate Bible study and discipleship. 

Our courses and resources are available for everyone. We began as a teaching ministry for the American Commonwealth Region of churches in ICOC as well as sister churches throughout Australia, Fiji, India, Indonesia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, and the UK

We continue offer resources for congregational teaching, including: CrossBearers, DiscipleMakers, NetMenders, MeatEaters, and BodyBuilders.

Changes have arrived for our MTA (Ministry Training Academy) curriculum. In 2017, we shift our approach for equipping young ministers and "TentMakers" via an online program. Students may now access the MTA curriculum via live teleconferencing of lectures and class discussions. Find out more HERE
