Although there are many online Bible schools, DOVE has a unique brand in the church sector because of its emphasis on church planting, small groups, New Testament leadership, Christian character, and the fivefold ministry. This school emphasizes practical training and empowering for all believers to minister, not just a few elite clergy.
A DOVE International core value is to build the Kingdom of God by developing relationships. The online school offers fun “gaming concepts” that allow students to measure accomplishments and develop a friendly competition with other students. Discussion forums and Q&A platforms allow students to interact with other students, and assessments/tests are built in as well.
Students who desire an ongoing connection with DOVE International will be referred to the various international regional gatherings to build relationships with the leaders of the DOVE family.
