Regional Training Institute

"When we first introduced the concept of the training institute, it was in the context of the  need to raise up human resources to take on the tasks of expansion and consolidation. At this  juncture, when a new series of Plans has just begun, we invite you to take a more expansive  view." - Universal House of Justice, 30 December 2021

“What the friends throughout the world are now being asked to do is to commit themselves, their material resources, their abilities and their time to the development of a network of training institutes on a scale never before attempted. These centres of Bahá’í learning will have as their goal one very practical outcome, namely, the raising up of large numbers of believers who are trained to foster and facilitate the process of entry by troops with efficiency and love.” –Universal House of Justice, Ridván 1996

“Central to the pattern of action evolving in a cluster is the individual and collective transformation effected through the agency of the Word of God. From the beginning of the sequence of courses, a participant encounters Bahá’u’lláh’s Revelation in considering such weighty themes as worship, service to humanity, the life of the soul, and the education of children and youth…What is clear, then, is that as the institute process in a cluster gains momentum, the act of teaching comes to assume greater prominence in the lives of the friends.”
