Spiritual Formation for Ministry

It is a fatal error to believe that ministry success depends upon professional training, skills, and personal gifts. As important as these can be, they will never be able to produce a fruitful, effective ministry on their own. A faithful ministry relies first and always upon God’s leading and anointing. Without a personal faith that is deep, real, and transformative, ministry becomes religion and leaders dry up or burn out. This class is an introduction to the spiritual disciplines and practices that make up the foundation of a successful ministry. The syllabus can be found here.
