Called to Serve Classes
"The things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also." II Timothy 2:2
Practical Ministry Training
Evenings from 7:00 - 8:30PM
April 28th and May 5th 2017.
As a means to "equip the saints for the work of the ministry…" (Ephesians 4:12), Calvary Chapel has developed this course in practical ministry training. It is intended to prepare the hearts of God’s servants and lay a foundation for those seeking to serve Him through the local church.
These studies are comprised of entry level ministry training for those who desire to serve the Lord in this capacity here at Calvary Chapel. You will be acquainted with the basic philosophy of ministry, helping you determine what calling God has on your life, and help you actively develop that call.
How Will It Operate?________________
Each class will be comprised of presentation on the basics of biblical service to God, discussions, questions and answers regarding the assigned homework. Classes begin promptly at 7:00PM each Friday and end by 8:30PM. The homework is comprised of listening to an MP3 message that is on our website (see link below), and answering questions in the Called to Serve homework download that accompanies week 1 and 2.
