MINISTRY PARTNER DEVELOPMENT TRAINING

OVERVIEW

Have you every wondered how to do what God was calling you to do in an environment that seems to lack resources? God promises that He has provided what we need to accomplish the mission He had called us to. Part of our role as ministers is to help people identify the resources God has provided and create environments where those resources can be leveraged for His Kingdom purposes.

Join us at this Ministry Partner Development training to explore how to identify and connect with the resources God has provided for His greatest glory! This training is for potential missionaries, church planters, or anyone exploring how to best navigate the ministry context in which we find ourselves today.

Questions? Contact Brian Combs or a Campus Missionary in your region. We are here to help!
