Our Department of Ministry has many cutting-edge ministry training programs and fields of study to help equip followers of Jesus Christ for the work of the ministry. Thus, “Training Real People for Real Purpose” is not just our motto but also our purpose. Whether you are called to a pulpit or a profession, a congregation, or a career – Vision Christian Bible College & Seminary is here to equip you to make a difference. Most of us think of ministry as the work done by pastors, missionaries, Christian conference speakers, or evangelists. We rarely think of work done by bankers, lawyers, engineers, or homemakers, etc. as the work of the ministry. We believe all arenas of work are to be viewed as our act of worship to the Lord and our mission field.
Whether you are called as an apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor, teacher, janitor, factory worker, engineer, worship leader, etc., our programs of study are all centered around advancing God’s Kingdom in your environment. Operating from a Kingdom perspective means studies are not only focused on the various ministries that labor in the church but also in the marketplace, the community, the prison environment, and in missions. We are prepared to equip you to be culturally relevant without becoming culturally compromised and to influence the world for the Kingdom of God.

Dr. HG Strickland
As a young man, Dr. HG Strickland knew God called him to ministry and he began obeying that call in the pulpit before the age of ten. Since then, he’s planted churches, launched ministries, and has raised up leaders across denominational lines. In fulfilling that call, God has taken him far beyond traditional ministry and church leadership to lead charities, foundations, businesses, and even train government leaders on Capitol Hill to operate in their identity and purpose.
HG also travels throughout the world teaching “Work Is Worship” and training people to live a life of purpose in the Kingdom of God. This revelation empowers people to incorporate their spiritual life into everyday life and to serve God where He places them – at work, at school, at home, and not only at church. While speaking at a Kingdom Quake conference in Toledo, Ohio, HG ministered to a lobbyist. That encounter would prove to be a divine appointment and led to an invitation to Washington, D.C. in January 2016. That lobbyist became a powerful ministry partner, and since then the two have been teaching in boardrooms across Washington, D.C. every two weeks. As the ministry continued to increase, it became apparent God was doing something more. Kingdom Life Ministries held their first service as a new church plant on October 14, 2018. They meet on Sunday evenings at the historic New York Avenue Presbyterian Church just two blocks from the White House.
Dr. Strickland serves on the national board, is the International Director, co-chairs the Department of Ministry, and is a mentoring professor in the Master and Doctoral Programs. He is a Director of Apostolic Team Ministries International and is a founding director of Kingdom Leadership International. HG is married to the love of his life and ministry partner, Chaley and together they have two boys, Tristan and Gavin.
