MINISTRY TRAINING PROGRAM
This program is offered in two modules, each taking three months. The course includes a broad range of challenging, faith-building, and biblically-based studies relevant for personal, pastoral, church and community life.
Module #1 (3 Months)
Bible study habits for personal life and preaching, prayer habits. Personal daily devotional life is the springboard for developing a rich, rewarding and productive relationship with the Lord. The key to living a life of continuous victories beyond human comprehension, is be in touch with God in a practical way, also called “fellowship of the Spirit” or “abiding in Christ”.
Character is a spiritual Fruit that is built from our real, godly relationship and commitment to Christ as LORD. Dealing with corruption, false doctrine, deception, discernment and spiritual gifts it is the fiber of our moral center that stretches throughout our being, embracing and holding together our relationships when it is sealed as a choice and commitment, and not just a feeling or a personality. Character synergistically combines with the Fruit of the Spirit and the seventy or so other characters of our Lord to promote our ability to relate and grow in our relations, to better others as well as ourselves.

You will learn to live all of life for the glory of God (1 Cor. 10:31), the need a God-centered view of work. It’s not enough that we try to honor God in how we do our work, or that we try to be Christlike to people at work, or that we support God’s kingdom with the money we make from work.
