Women's Institute FAQ
Who is this for?
This is for anyone who wants to grow in their knowledge or love of theology, the Bible, and caring for other women in their sphere of influence. There is no cost associated with this course.
What is the content and format for the Women's Institute?
The theme of this summer's Institute session is "Tracing the Storyline of Scripture". We have curated content from trusted sources and publishers to provide coursework with a focus on Biblical theology. We also have additional Institute tracks on the importance of studying the Bible, women's leadership, and counseling and caring for women. The Institute workbook can be downloaded from our women's resources page.
The beauty of this summer's Institute format is that the content is all online! You can take courses at your own pace.
How long will this take? How do I take the course?
The length of time depends on your learning style and cohort's meeting schedule this summer. The core Institute course is 4 sections and the video content takes anywhere from 30-60 minutes per section to complete. The recommended rhythm for this course is to take 1 section each week to give you enough time to complete it. However, it is up to you how you'd like to work through the content.
After registering for the Institute, you will receive an email with your course which you can start as soon as you get it. If you do not have a RightNow Media account, you can request a free account here.
What are cohorts? Can I request to be in a cohort with a friend?
Note: Cohorts will be closed on Thursday, June 20th.
You will be placed in cohorts within the first few weeks of registering for the Institute. Because there is no official course schedule, you do not need to wait to be placed in a cohort before starting your course! You and your cohort will decide on the schedule based on your availability this summer. One exciting element of the cohorts is the opportunity to meet, grow, and be discipled alongside some new friends!
However, if you and a friend would like to be in the same cohort, you are more than welcome to create your own cohort with some other women (suggested group size of 3-6), like from your Community Group or Women's Bible Study group, and register together! You will need to list the cohort leader/facilitator in your registration form for placement purposes.
What if I fall behind or don't finish the course? Or what if I finish and want to do more?
We understand that the summer is a time of rest and relaxation! Since the course is meant to be done at your own pace, you will still have access to the content into the fall.
If you've completed your Institute course and would like to take an additional track, fill out the registration form again and choose the tracks you'd like to do. You will stay with the same cohort.
I want to serve in the Institute! Are there ways to get involved?
We are always looking for ways that women can use their gifts to bless and serve the church body! While this session is primarily online, there are administrative and organizational ways to serve in this summer session. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
