Hands on Ministry – Volunteer Chaplaincy Training
Hands-on ministry provides pastoral care skills training for the Christian who is ministering to the neighbor across the street, co-worker, family member, friend, stranger or in a volunteer chaplaincy setting. Effective ministry involves meeting a need, touching a life and sharing about Christ. The 30-hour training is an excellent resource to help a Christian to be better equipped for ministry. Additional 12-hours of training are available for those who have a desire to specialize in certain ministry areas.
Hands on Ministry is now offered online, as well as through local classes.
