PASTORAL
BASIC TRAINING

Basic skills to Shepard a Church

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

This certification teaches the basic skills necessary to shepherd a church. It is ideal for the lay pastor, church elder, or deacon who wants to make leading a church a vocation. Additionally, a church without a trained pastor can use this certification program to raise up a shepherd from within its body or community.

This program is intended to educate those called by God to be pastors. If you feel the call into the pastorate from the Lord, obey. This training allows you to study at home and stay in your current employment until you are ready for the pastorate. Even those presently serving as a pastor will find this basic education invaluable.

The courses offered for this certification program are written by men of faith who have time tested experience such as John MacArthur, D. L. Moody, Criswell, R.A. Torrey and others. This Pastor’s Boot Camp is an intensive basic training providing conservative Biblical teaching that is spiritually appraised. Successful completion will advance the shepherd many years in equivalent wisdom.

Ordination and Licensing is bestowed by the employing ministry, not this school or by virtue of receiving the educational certification.  

This certification is for the pastoral student who already meets the Biblical requirements found in 1 Timothy 3 and Titus

COURSES

Basic Bible Doctrine
This course covers important Bible doctrines including the attributes of God, the person and work of Christ, the ministry of the Holy Spirit; and teachings regarding man, Satan, angels, the church, and end time events. Added emphasis on Christian living.

Sermon Preparation – Preaching is the proclamation of the Good News of salvation; the very truth of God through man to men. The preacher is separated by God for the specific work of preaching the Gospel. Every message the preacher delivers ought to be stamped with his own personality and expressed in his own way. Take this close examination of expository preaching with emphasis on the preparation, process, and organization needed to prepare effective sermons.

Power for God’s WorkBased on works by Charles Stanley, D.L. Moody and others, this course will challenge Christian workers to a life and ministry with the power of the Holy Spirit. The fullness of the Holy Spirit will bring joy, peace and victory within the life of any believers, and will also empower Christian workers to successfully reach and teach others for our Lord Jesus Christ.

Biblical Leadership
In this dynamic study, John MacArthur teaches us the spiritual (and practical) leadership principles that Paul learned from the Lord, and then modeled for us. The Bible makes it clear that character—not style, not technique, not methodology, but character—is the true biblical test of all great leadership, in the church and out. Learn 26 characteristics of a true leader

 

Electives for Pastor Basic Training I

Following God’s Will – This course begins with an examination of John MacArthur’s short classic, found—God’s Will, on how to discover the direction and purpose God has for your life. It then continues with Paul Chappell’s discussion of seven Biblical keys for staying on “The Right Path” in your life and ministry.

Discipleship Training – A relevant study for training in discipleship. It includes an investigation of the early church, the process of making disciples, and the elements of leadership training. Special emphasis is also given to the problem of materialism in the life of modern Christians.

Book of Nehemiah – It has been said, “If every Christian would study and follow the inspiring example of Nehemiah, surely we would enjoy a genuine, refreshing revival of faith and morality”. The Book of Nehemiah abounds with wisdom for church policies and guidance. Nehemiah’s leadership serves as a Biblical primer to anyone aspiring to places of leadership. The student will learn of Biblical social justice, the call to national repentance, and how righteousness exalted a nation. A 2400-year-old lesson that has never been more needed in our nation’s history.

Pastoral Epistles – In this study of 1-2 Timothy, Titus and Philemon, Warren Wiersbe emphasizes that nothing takes the place of faithfulness. The greatest ability you can have is dependability. This course will help you understand a local church’s ministry and encourage you to be faithful to the Word, to your tasks and to other people.

COURSES

Pastoral Ministry – This course represents an incisive, introductory examination of the nuts and bolts of pastoral ministry. Based on the research of two well-known “Pastor’s pastors,” (Howard R. Sugden and Warren W. Wiersbe), it answers questions covering every aspect of ministry with tried and true advice. Topics include the call to ministry or a new church, meeting with the pulpit committee, getting a new pastorate off the ground, starting a building program, counseling concerning divorce and remarriage, deaths and funerals, dealing with problem people, budgeting time and finances, personal matters, and much more.  

Spiritual Leadership – Real leaders are in short supply. Churches, people, and groups all search for them. Throughout the Bible God searched for them. The Bible shows us that when God does find a person who is ready to lead, that person is used to the limit. Despite their flaws and shortcomings, they become a spiritual leader. Authors R.A. Torrey and Oswald Sanders expound on obtaining God’s power and wisdom as spiritual leaders. Jesus was revolutionary in His teaching on leadership. Do you aspire to the honorable vocation of spiritual leadership? Take this course.

Pastoral Epistles – In this study of 1-2 Timothy, Titus and Philemon, Warren Wiersbe emphasizes that nothing takes the place of faithfulness. The greatest ability you can have is dependability. This course will help you understand a local church’s ministry and encourage you to be faithful to the Word, to your tasks and to other people.

Marriage Counseling
A course designed to help counselors give good Biblical advice for couples having problems with their relationships. Emphasis is given to the goal of marriage, the meeting of personal needs, and the foundational building blocks for an enduring and successful marriage.
