The purpose of the Entrance Level program is to provide lay people in the local Hispanic congregation with a foundational knowledge of Scripture and of Lutheran theology and practice. The courses are delivered primarily on-site at either regional centers or specific congregations. Local pastors or regional coordinators serve as course facilitators. The content of the material is delivered with DVDs. Course manuals and books guide the teaching and learning activities for each course. Students complete courses as rapidly or slowly as they can effectively master the material. Upon completion of the Entrance Level program, students are prepared for various kinds of leadership and service in local congregations as lay workers under the supervision of pastors.
