Core Courses

I am enjoying our discussions on Integrity and hearing the different ways God has challenged our integrity these last two weeks. Great work leaders, you have done well!

Our next core course is Ministry Development and our text is From Dream to Reality by Dr. Jerry Nance. The journey that Dr. Nance, his family and staff have taken is captured in this story of God’s divine favor upon a team of leaders who were willing to risk all to do God’s will. In the text you will find the story unfold in 21 chapters, each one covering a different principle.  This book will inspire you to dream big, apply the principles found within the pages and motivate you to make an invaluable contribution to the Kingdom of God. For those of you who do not have a copy of this book, please send me an email and I will send you a copy. Your first post will be up on the forum on Monday, April 15th.

 

March 2013 ELP Level III Graduates

Sharon Pierce and David HubbardSharon Pierce – Women at the Well, Pennsylvania
David HubbardSonrise Ranch, TC Oklahoma
Sharon served with Women at the Well, Tennessee for 8 years before God called her to launch out and establish another Women at the Well ministry in Pennsylvania. As a new Director, Sharon says that the ELP Level III training came at the perfect time! She testified at the Level III graduation that every module was helpful in her preparation as a leader and in shaping the new ministry, however, the most beneficial part was the peer learning and the fellowship with other TC leaders. Sharon and her advisory team currently lead outreach and jail ministry, and are in the process of obtaining their residential home for Women at the Well, PA.
David is a Teen Challenge graduate and was an interim Director when he started the Level III in October of 2010. As can often be the case in Teen Challenge, it was somewhat of a “thrown into the deep end” experience. For David as well, the timing of the Level III was perfect; the content of the program relevant; and the shared learning with other TC leaders very beneficial. He testified at the graduation that the Admissions training alone transformed the way they facilitate this aspect of the ministry and greatly improved their tuition revenue!
