The ministry training series at PGN are designed to help you create a discipleship culture from the inside out.

Key Points:

  • The goal of our 101 training series is to train on a specific ministry (worship teams, student ministry, etc.) and on a mentoring method.
  • Your ministry teams at church are a simple way to start scaling your discipleship culture.
  • Try starting with workshops and then later use handoffs within your teams. For best results, start tracking your mentoring on your ministry teams.

Quote This:

Ephesians 4:11-12 Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers. Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ.
