Many who are working in a specific ministry area or are in a congregational leadership role feel the need to further their knowledge and skill bases in specific areas. There are those who find themselves for the first time as congregational leaders who feel they are not properly prepared or trained. There are also those who feel called to do specific ministries in their own congregations but have not had the opportunity to learn the techniques they need, to be able to participate in those ministry areas. If this describes you, then you might consider taking one or more of the specific modules offered in the Ministry Leadership Institute programs.
