Basic Training & OCS

Basic Training is Christ the Word's ministry dedicated to training men to be godly fathers in the Church and the home, to be loving husbands, and to developing male leaders in the Kingdom of God. It meets at the church house during the school year, and is led by Christ the Word elders.

OCS is an intensive survey of Scripture designed to prepare men for leadership in the Church. Completion of Basic Training and OCS are typically, though not uniformly, the course of preparation for Christ the Word's officers.

During the course of Basic Training and OCS men will memorize the Westminster Shorter Catechism. Entrance to Basic Training and OCS is by invitation and class size is limited.
