We are an innovative theological training institute supporting the reshaping of individuals, churches and society in German speaking Europe. We offer German speaking training, further training and services relating to the spread of the Gospel and the formation of society.
We base our training on the principles of adult education and focus on a combination of theory, practice and personal development. Our students are developed in professional, spiritual, social as well as research skills.
We confess the Triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Our foundation is the Bible.
We take our orientation from the historic creeds of the Church, the Basis of Faith of the Evangelical Alliance as well as the Lausanne Covenant.
Our teaching methodology is manifold:
Our training philosophy rests on a model of 3 learning fields (see graphic on the right):
In 2009, IGW was granted the eduQua-certificate, the leading Swiss quality label for educational institutions.
We work in a cost-conscious manner, use church facilities for teaching and study, and keep administration expenses low. Still, we are dependent upon donations to cover our expenses. Our financing model rests on 80% economic viability and 20% donations.
We gratefully accept individual as well as regular donations. All funds go directly into the development of new programmes aiming at helping our students influence their environment in a relevant and powerful manner.
