About IMLD



We equip Christian leaders for effective ministry that impacts the family, community, and the world.


What We Do

The Dale C. Bronner Institute of Ministry and Leadership Development (IMLD) was established in 2014 and is the premier education and development ministry for those with a ministry call on their lives at Word of Faith Family Worship Cathedral. We build the Kingdom of God by providing quality education and experiential learning for those with a ministerial call on their lives at Word of Faith. Committed to lifelong learning, the institute offers a new, non-traditional theological education format that is church-based and competency-based. As a student in your program, we challenge you to grow in the following areas:

  • Spiritual Formation
  • Personal Growth and Development
  • Ministry Service
  • Theological Studies



We are a premier Christian learning institute dedicated to the development and spiritual formation of Christian leaders.


From Our Students

I survived the intensity of the program with the support of the leadership, my cohorts, and my mentor. Most importantly, I came to understand and accepted the fact that ministry had been chosen for me before I was in my mother’s womb. It is such a blessing to know and to be in agreement with God’s plan and purpose for my life and to be made whole spirit, soul, and body.

Rev. Margie Clark, MIT Graduate

“And still I rise” into Ministry Leadership roles I never dreamed of because of the IMLD vision and mission compass!

Rev. Avis Kimpson, MIT Graduate

IMLD Leadership was invested in our spiritual development and helping us bridge the gap from where we were to where God wanted to take us. There was time and thought put into the experience they wanted to craft for the whole person. They poured into us and then poured some more. It was so evident that each person involved in the process was chosen and specially equipped to be integral in shaping our total experience.
