Learn about God's design and desire for His church, the Body of Christ, that its members be in relationship and true fellowship in body life that fulfills the one another commands of Scripture.
Learn to administrate and coordinate the programs or strategies needed to facilitate the spiritual growth or discipleship of believers into Christ-likeness. Factors considered are the philosophy behind it, staff needed, levels and groupings in which it happens, and models that can be used, as well as other factors.
Find the Biblical basis and practical outworking of God's purposes for the church. Learn the benefits of being purpose-driven and how to overcome obstacles in getting there. This is good leadership training.
Gain an understanding of the need to develop ministry profiles which blend together your spiritual gifts, personality, experience, and heart passions to show your best fit in ministry.
Find training and resources for all types of ministry leaders in the church or in parachurch organizations who are called by God to serve in various capacities, facing unique challenges, affecting the church culture, and coming under the critique of God, self, and others.
Certain types of ministries like clerical, communications, facilities and grounds maintenance, hospitality, staff-support, technical services, and other service-oriented ministries, are often overlooked but quite important. These ministries tend to hold church life together.
Be reminded that outreach ministry is as much about connecting with God about people through intercessory prayer as it is connecting people with God, obeying the Great Commission through missions, one-on-one witnessing, visitation, door-to-door, and church planting. God will use your consideration and compassion in community outreach and benevolence to assure people of His love. God will use you to correct misconceptions through apologetics to answer their questions and doubts. Communication of the Gospel can take many forms like crusades, open air, street evangelism, neighborhood Bible studies, tracts, and the media with the intent of awakening their faith. Characterization of Jesus in the walk of a believer, or lifestyle evangelism, will be used by God to authenticate the message.
Learn how to be a people helper by comforting those in grief, by listening to and counseling those who need encouragement, by providing practical assistance and relief to those in need, by establishing support groups for those who need healing and understanding, by visiting those who need to know you care, and by intervening when people are in crisis.
Review the elements of an effective prayer ministry, whether it be personal, with a prayer partner, or corporately in the church. When you understand and practice these elements, then you will be ready to plan strategies for prayer, prepare others to join you, and promote prayer successfully.
Gain an understanding of how to effectively tend to the spiritual welfare of believers over the course of time by watching over, guiding, and nurturing them to become more Christ-like. Shepherding can be done by a pastor, elders of a church, Sunday School teachers, parents, or through discipleship, mentoring, equipping, small groups, support groups, ministry teams, and other venues.
Discover Bible teaching on spiritual gifts given by the Holy Spirit to equip the Body of Christ for Christian ministry with resources to define, identify and use them.
Learn how to develop an effective staffing solution that includes needs assessment, ministry profiling, recruitment, placement, and training of ministry workers and staff based on God's design of the church and of the Christian worker.
Find teacher training, ministry tools and resources for the teaching-learning process applicable to Christian teachers of all age-levels in the church's educational program. Be-Attitudes for Teachers bring enrichment to teachers and leaders. Children's workers find discipline tips to help them prevent and correct behavior problems. All teachers can learn how to use different teaching methods. Teachers are also helped to identify essential elements in choosing curriculum.
