The Institute for Disciple-Making (IDM) exists to equip every member of our faith family to glorify God by making disciples of all nations. We desire to see world-impacting disciple makers serving the Lord by multiplying disciples, leaders, small groups, and churches among the nations in Birmingham, across North America, and throughout the world. Equipping through IDM is both theological and practical. Such training is not simply about gaining more knowledge, but applying what we learn to the real world.

IDM classes are free to Brook Hills members and offered numerous times each year both online and in the classroom. Upcoming classes will be listed below. Click on the event title in order to register. You may also stop by the IDM kiosk in the main lobby or look for an announcement in the weekly worship guide to get more information regarding upcoming classes and registration information. If you have any questions, please contact Jessica.
