"Very often, we really do want to help the people around us however we can, but we get so focused on finding a quick solution to the external behavior that we overlook the real problem."

Francis Chan

 

"EQUIPPING THE SAINTS FOR THE WORK OF MINISTRY"

Ephesians 4:12

PASTORAL TRAINING

Many pastors and church leaders haven't had adequate counseling training, if any, in order to handle the problems presented in church life and the lives of its people. Most pastors receive only a minimum requirement of one or two biblical counseling courses in seminary, while most church leaders don't receive any. Our goal is to see these church leaders equipped to not just meet these needs but also to train others in their body to do so as well.

EQUIPPING MINISTRY LEADERS

The majority of issues that arise in churches have become critical issues often overwhelming the senior pastor leading to the outsourcing of professional help outside the local church. What if those who are involved in regular ministry were equipped to spot early signs of issues, triage them, and prevent those cases from becoming critical? Would the church body be healthier?

ENCOURAGING THE CHURCH BODY

God's word is sufficient for, "teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness" (2 Tim. 3:16). There are biblical principles that are profitable for all of the saints to encourage and develop healthy, Christ-centered churches.
