Middle Tennessee Leadership Institute

The Middle Tennessee Leadership Institute (MTLI) exists to identify, train, and deploy leaders. These leaders include church planters, pastors, worship leaders, group leaders, and mission leaders – from local community efforts to international work.

Seminary Partnership

The Middle Tennessee Leadership Institute (MTLI) partners with Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary (SEBTS) to offer accredited courses that meet the degree requirements for the Master of Arts in Christian Ministry (Mentored) (MACMm). These courses can be audited or taken for credit through SEBTS.

The Ministry Residency is a two-year ministry experience that equips leaders for vocational ministry and Kingdom advancement. This experience trains the next generation of Christian leaders (i.e. church planters, pastors, worship leaders, Groups leaders, and mission leaders) to lead the church effectively through cohort learning environments, mentored supervision, and experiential ministry.

The Bi-Vocational Residency at Brentwood Baptist was created with this servant of God in mind.

Hoping to equip bi-vocational leaders with the skills and knowledge they need, the residency will focus on two major areas:

  1. Training/Coaching/Mentoring
  2. Placement in a Ministry Context
