Instructors Training Course Syllabus
There will be two (2) quizzes during this ten week
Leadership training program. The first will be during the
fifth week of class: (i.e. the 20th. of June), the second on
the last day of class (i.e. 1st.August). Content of quizzes will

Purpose: In the Great Commission, Jesus commanded
the Church to "Go into the world and make
disciples(not converts) of all nations…..teaching them
to observe(obey) whatsoever I have commanded
you…"(Matthew 28:18-19) The emphasis here was on
Teaching done for the purpose of
Application(Obedience) not Information. It must be
noted that no amount of teaching received and
knowledge gained will make one a "minister." Just as
swimmers are not made in a bathtub, so are
disciples/ministers not made in the classroom.
Principles taught and learnt must be first internalized
and then in obedience, put into practice in a context
of accountability. This is the key to Discipleship,
Leadership and fruitfulness in ministry, and thus the
essence of this Practicum.
Group Discussion/Interaction: All participants will be
divided into groups for both in and out of class
discussion of subject-matter and concepts taught in
class. It is hoped that such an interactive format will
first enable participants process information taught,
and secondly help participants determine how, where
and in what situations or ministries the knowledge
gained can be applied.(obedience) Ministry of Helps
Application Forms will also be made available to all
who decide to serve in the Ministry of Helps.
Prayer Power: Ministry, Mission and Leadership in the
kingdom of God flow out of a passion for God.
Ministry without passion only leads to burn-out.
Prayer and the Word are the basis for this passion. All
participants are to discipline themselves to an hour a
day (at least) of fellowship with the Holy Spirit.(30
min. in prayer/30 min. in the Word/Meditation).Group
leaders to provide accountability in this
regard. Please note: It is ALL for YOUR Good.
Evangelism: To be coordinated in conjunction with
local pastor or designated leader.
