Zoe Leadership Institute

Our Story

Zoe Leadership Institute [ ZLI] is evolved after many consultations among the church leaders working in Northern part of India. Even though there are many theological institutions in India, for Christian ministers and laypersons, quality theological education is inaccessible due to the cost involved and residency demand. Moreover, English is the predominant language of communication in many of these theological institutions. In such a context, ZLI is formed to provide cost effective, quality education in Hindi without leaving the workplace or ministerial context.  ZLI is functioning under Zoe trust, registered under the provision of the Indian Trusts Act, 1882.

Mission Statement

Zoe Leadership Institute seeks to provide quality academic programs in indigenous language prioritizing biblical authority and contextual church discipleship, by training men and women.

The vision of Zoe Leadership Institute is to become a leading virtual theological institution in indigenous languages from grassroot to post graduate level, and thus accomplish its mission for the glory of God.

Core values

Zoe Leadership Institute promotes the following core values in order to attain its mission.

Why ZLi?

Virtual courses: Enjoy the option of a more traditional class structure with live lectures and discussion.

Affordability: ZLI serves the students who seeks a quality education in religious studies at affordable price. The institute welcomes the believers and non- believers by laying aside denominational trappings and historical interpretation. Studies focus on biblical scripture.

Flexibility: ZLI employs a rolling application procedure.. Virtual classrooms are open twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, allowing students to customize  their learning plan to fit their schedule.

Discover Quality: ZLI exists to make a college-level education in religious and theological studies available to highly motivated students who want to prepare for church leadership but cannot find that education due to financial or other practical reasons. We have provided quality independent study courses at minimal cost to the students by not having a physical campus, by recruiting university professors and other professionals.
