Pastors and/or denominational leaders who desire to give their people an overview of biblical sufficiency-based personal ministry (and perhaps prompt a desire for more training) contact us to provide these fast-moving one-day seminars.

Who Should Attend?

Any and all believers! First, the leaders of the inviting church. Beyond that, our key audience is pastors of evangelical churches. Without denominational consideration, any pastors who believe that the Bible is the Word of God and sufficient to help people should be encouraged to come. And, of course, the key lay people in their churches should also attend. Finally, don’t forget the people working in para-church Christian ministry agencies, missionaries, ex-pats working in the area, etc. In other words – all the believers should be invited!

When Do These Seminars Take Place?

These seminars typically take place on Saturdays at the inviting/hosting church.
