The Certificate in Practical Christian Ministry was launched in 2007. This programme is for all in the Body of Christ who understand and desire to fulfill the Great Commission and be raised up for the Lord's purposes in these final days. Through a hands-on and practical approach, the Certificate programme aims to challenge the Christian to be doers of the Word, with the key emphasis for knowledge to be used and applied in his or her life, situations and spiritual walk.
The Certificate in Practical Christian Ministry is a one-year basic programme designed to equip the saints for the work of the ministry.
It has been structured with a holistic approach to provide the necessary training and exposure for each participant, through a good mix of instruction and application. If you have been a Christian for at least two years, and your desire is to begin to make a difference for the Lord in all that you do, this programme is for you.
These are "how-to" subjects that will equip you for effective ministry and service, whilst spurring you on to spiritual growth and maturity. Equipping Courses are conducted across 4 sessions, once a week over 4 weeks on Wednesday evenings. Sessions start at 7:30pm and end by 10:00pm.
