Part 1: Crosslands Foundation Introduction to Christian Ministry track
During the course of the year we'll study 7 modules together. These make up over three quarters of the Crosslands Foundation 'Introduction to Christian Ministry' Track. Four hours a week are required to cover the material, but the good news is that two hours of this are included in our time together.
To complete the track and obtain your Certificate of Completion from Crosslands, we recommend that you complete the remaining module 'Gospel Living' in your own time, either during one of the holidays or after the course has finished.
Now - sign up & pay before Monday 17th September.
We will then purchase the modules from Crosslands, and send participants the access codes, giving time to access the material before the start of the course.
The course will run on the following dates:
27th Sept; 4th/ 11th/ 18th Oct; 8th/ 15th/22nd/29th Nov; 17th/24th/31st Jan; 7th/ 28th Feb; 7th/14th/ 21st Mar; 25th Apr; 2nd/9th/16th May; 6th/ 13th/ 20th/ 27th June.
We would love to do the the whole course together. If that's not possible for you, but you join us for part of the course , contact David to discuss options
£250 payable in advance
If cost is a barrier to you, please contact David.
Part 2: Teaching with Purpose
We'll cover a unit each half term. The first will give a big picture of how God speaks. The remaining units equip participants for word ministry from across the Scriptures. Units on Gospels; OT Prophecy; OT Narrative; Wisdom; and Epistles will give participants the opportunity to apply principles to everyday life in a workshop format.
These units will be taught by Hugo Charteris; Duncan Woods; Dan Martin; and David Dargue.
One session per unit is give to Ministry in Context, with people working in different contexts from across our collective speaking about what Teaching with Purpose looks like in their situation. Jenny Charteris will be leading the first on 'Leading from Anywhere'.
