Training Category: Staffing Ministry
We’ve already established that a comprehensive ministry training plan that includes a variety of elements beyond skill development leads to greater effectiveness in serving. But, getting people to participate in training opportunities can seem quite difficult. There are steps you can take that should help.
Gaining Maximum Participation in Ministry Training Opportunities
The AAA’s that follow are included in the Staffing Ministry Manual along with some additional thoughts on these steps.

The Staffing Ministry Manual includes a template you can use to develop a list of possible alternative training resources for different ministries.
