✅ Scripture, Spirit, Life, Church – the Four Series
611 Leadership Institute highly regards balanced development through “Bible, Spirit, Life, Church building” series.
✅ Vision, Anointing and Practice are equally important
611 Leadership Institute considers receiving vision, passing on anointing and practical exercises of same significance. This is greatly different from general academic diplomas offered by conventional seminaries, thus we only offer Pastoral Ministry Diploma.
✅ There is no education requirement
▶️ There was no education requirement following Jesus, hence we do likewise in recruiting.
▶️ When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus. (Acts 4:13)
✅ Gracious in admission but high graduation requirements
Traditional schools set high admission requirements but are very lenient in graduation. In Spirit-renewed Leadership Institute, we advocate “Many are welcome, few may graduate” because many are called, but few are chosen (Matthew 22:14)
✅ Despite lockdown due to pandemic, equipping of the saints should not cease
In response to prophetic revelation which mentioned few more waves of plagues coming. In order not to be affected by lockdown of various cities, online bible school is set up
✅ End-time revival, speed up training
The end-time is approaching, 611 Leadership Institute has received the revelation to speed up training of workers, getting ready for the great end-time harvest. Bible school teachers teach in Hong Kong which is broadcast to various countries. When the pandemic is over, once every semester, bible school teachers will teach in Taipei 611, Kuching 611, GA611, etc, with live broadcast to online bible schools worldwide.
✅ Bilingual translation, equipping nations
▶️ Since the establishment of 611 Bread of Life Christian Church in 2001, there has always been bilingual worship services. Now there are 7 languages including Mandarin, Cantonese, English, Japanese, Tagalog, Indonesian and French going on for morning devotion every day. From 2018 onward, Hong Kong Leadership Institute has also started bilingual translation during class.
▶️ Through bilingual translation in class, worldwide bible schools will be able to translate into their local languages such Malay, Arabic, etc., This way, workers of nations may be trained up.
✅ When the pandemic is severe
Take the class at home, stay safe and be at peace
✅ When the pandemic is eased
Take the class at church, learn from each other
✅ When the pandemic is over
When the Bible school teachers go around to different places, students of that place shall attend the lesson in person at the corresponding overseas bible school (Kuching 611, GA 611, Taipei 611, etc) for exchanges and receiving anointing.
P.S: Bible school students in Macau should attend the class in Hong Kong at least once every semester while students in Dubai are exempted from this requirement.
✅ Continuous equipping
The online Leadership Institute is unaffected by the pandemic so that the equipping of the workers shall continue.
✅ Local practicum, International anointing
▶️ For the on-site Leadership Institute, overseas students can only do practicum in their hometown during weekends. Yet the online Leadership Institute allows students to receive 611 DNA in their local churches and do practicum in their region during weekends.
▶️ During online practice, students may learn from the worship, testimony, power ministry and different preaching styles from other countries.
✅ Save time and cost
Save travelling time and cost of transport and accommodation.
✅ The capacity of the teachers continues to increase
611 Leadership Institute was established in 2004 when there were around 400 people attending our church and no branch churches. In 2020, the church sees her congregation grown over 20 times, leading more than 110 branch churches. The horizon and capacity of all teachers are being broadened constantly, naturally the Leadership Institute is expanding in all aspects too.
✅ Receiving the new wine from God wave after wave
611 has been receiving new wine from God wave after wave, e.g. New wine new wineskin, New wine overflowing: longing, emptying, filling, overflowing; Kindness is the key; One way; three true relationships (True light, the truth, true feeling); Embracing the pearl; Shekinah ladder (Confession and thanksgiving); freedom brings self-control; more love more trust; Angel inside; the fragrance of the Tree of Life, etc., The course is being renewed constantly, keeping it fresh and lively.
✅ The fragrance of the Tree of Life series
611 coworker team is of over 200 people. The key to keep such a big team gelled is the family breakfast meeting held every Thursday morning. After the effort of Pastor Joshua and C-Mo for nearly twenty years, the presence of God is strong in 611. During the curator staff retreat on 1st July 2020, with one heart, we received that the ‘The Fragrance of the Tree of Life” is to fill the entire church, the Leadership Institute and all branch churches. Therefore, once a month, we will connect family breakfast meeting to all online bible school live-stream points. Every Friday morning, we will put together the highlights of previous family breakfast meetings. Led by curator staff and the staff concerned, there will be debriefing and Q&A session. In this way, the fragrance of the Tree of Life can be spread more quickly.
✅ Definitely and it gives you a strong sense of presence
During the pandemic lockdown, God raised up 611 media team who not only made three global branch churches live-stream services possible, but also successfully supported 2nd term bible school online course. Bible school students in various places were able to take classes at home and they gave very positive comments on the effectiveness of the classes.
✅ Long-distance practice，cross-country improvement

✅ Pass on the anointing without restrictions
The long-distance healing course has been conducted through live broadcast. Overseas bible school students were ministered and healed.
Example: During pandemic, Pastor Deborah did the healing & deliverance class online in Hong Kong with live broadcast to West Malaysia GA 611. She was not only demonstrating but also gave advices to students present. The whole teaching was also broadcasted to Taipei, Taichung, Tainan, Taitung and Kuching, etc.

✅ The practicum of holding MG12 cell group is to make sure the students understand the vision of MG12 and put it into practice. Therefore, it is not necessary to ordain two more cell leaders.
However, you need to keep 2 cell leaders and over 20 cell members in your tribe by the time of graduation. Moreover, we encourage students to continue MG12 discipleship to bless many. In addition, the quality and quantity of your tribe is related to the learning outcome.
✅ The concept and practice of the MG12 cell group is an important feature of the 611 Leadership Institute. In principle, we recommend students to obverse and learn about the features of MG12 within the two-year program as much as possible. However, we still respect the final decision of the Senior Pastor of the student’s home-church. If the student’s home-church does not have a cell group structure, it is recommended that the student should take practice in a MG12 cell group church.
