How-To: Skills for Everyday Ministry | Series 3

A one-day workshop to equip your people with the essential skills for everyday ministry.

Every day, people at church and in Christian ministries engage in tasks such as leading small groups, service leading, prayer in groups and juggling dozens of other responsibilities. But each takes skill and often there’s little training. This half-day event is your chance to upskill in the things people do every day in Christian ministry. It is perfect for ministry interns, apprentices, ministry leaders and active church members who want to know how to.

What do we have in store for you in Series 3?

On the ground in church and ministry we often just want to know “how to” – how to lead this or do that in the best way possible. So following on from last year’s popular “How To” seminars, RTC is back with more practical training for everyday ministry.

“How To” provides great training for ministry interns and apprentices, local church ministry leaders, and active church members.

  • How to Make Daily Devotions a Delight – with Aleesha Bransgrove, AFES staff worker
  • How to Lead a Good Meeting – with RTC Principal, Phillip Scheepers
  • How to Encourage Your Pastor – with Murray Capill, RTC Dean of Ministry Development
