The Contenders Discipleship Initiative (CDI) is a two-year program offered by Village Missions to equip Christians for ministry within their local church and to prepare those who are called for full-time ministry as missionary pastors. 

CDI is for everyone!  You don't have to be preparing for ministry as a vocation in order to bolster your knowledge of scripture, history, and sharing your faith with others.

Classes are held on Mondays and Thursdays here at MCC, from 7-9pm.  A rotation of subject material is held over the two-year period and include the following courses:

  1. Bibliology and How to Study the Bible
  2. Christian Doctrine and Systematic Theology
  3. New Testament Survey
  4. Old Testament Survey
  5. Church History
  6. Evangelism, Teaching and Preaching

It's never too late to join.  If you are interested in attending the current session or the next, or would like more information, reach out to us at
