The vision for the SCC institute is to make whole disciples who take responsibility for their spiritual growth. We believe healthy followers of Jesus GO, GATHER, and GROW. Focused especially on GROWth, the SCC institute trains and grows disciples through Core Classes, the Accelerated Training Program, the School of Discipleship, and the School of Theology. For more information contact Ryan Vincent.
Core Classes cover the basics at Sunnybrook, including membership and any class that teaches through books of the Bible. Core Classes give you a place to earn about God's Word and a people to grow with along the way. Click here for core class handouts and recordings.

The Accelerated Training Program (ATP) is for anyone at Sunnybrook wanting to explore foundational questions about God, the Bible, and how they fit into its story. You'll learn how God's story shapes your beliefs and see how to live out his plan for reconciling and redeeming the world in your own life. Our goal in the ATP is to creat a firm foundation in just one year to prepare you for the Schools of Discipleship and Theology. Classes are held on Wednesday evenings in the Spring and Fall.

The School of Discipleship (SOD) is for those who have attended a Men's or Women's Encounter Weekend and have completed the Post-Encounter classes. The School of Discipleship is designed to train men and women to engage more deeply in the discipleship process. Our vision for discipleship at Sunnybrook is that we would continuously make disciples who make more disciples, and we believe SOD goes a long way toward achieving that goal. For more information contact Scot Irwin or DiAnn Brown.

The School of Theology (SOT) is for those who would like to study seminary-level material in the local church.

SOT typically meets on Monday evenings and will take approximately four years to complete. Click here for school of theology handouts and recordings.
