7-Day Ministry Training
“Every church should be a training school for Christian workers. Its members should be taught how to give Bible readings, how to conduct and teach Sabbath-school classes, how best to help the poor and to care for the sick, how to work for the unconverted. There should be schools of health, cooking schools, and classes in various lines of Christian help work.”
Ministry of Healing | Ellen G. White
What Members Will Learn?
The proclamation of the Three Angels’ Messages; How to Study the Bible; How to Give Bible Studies; Understanding our Core Doctrines as Seventh-day Adventists; Church History; The Science of Prayer and more…
MEDICAL MISSIONARY WORK
The natural healing sciences designed for character development & effective witnessing by addressing the physical as well as emotional and spiritual needs of humanity. Things one would learn in this phase of the course is the connecting link between Health Reform and the Third Angels Message from the Bible, Hydrotherapy, Herbal Treatments, The Healing Properties of Food, The Work of the Holy Spirit in Healing, and much more…
THE CANVASSING WORK
How to get truth-filled literature into the homes and neighboring churches that are not part of the Seventh-day Adventist community. Doing one-on-one consultations with others, for the purpose of wellness, using our literature, and much more…
These three works we are told are God’s agencies (SEE Evangelism 547). Considering the fact that Jesus’ work was multi-faceted, (Matthew 9:35 shows Jesus was a Preacher, Teacher, & Healer) we believe that the members should be equipped in like manner.
What are the Benefits to a Church?
In a day and age in which it is difficult to help members understand the messages for this time, and how to make them practical in daily life, the 7-D course will make plain and comprehensible the Three Angels’ Messages and what they entail through thorough teaching, including handouts & presentation slides.
To give good training you need time with the students. The 7-D course is designed to capture 36 hours in 1 week with the students, without them having to take a week off from work. Here’s how it works. The training schedule accommodates the working and schooling classes.
The schedule is as follows:
*Monday-Thursday: classes would be 5pm-9pm. (These timelines have worked for hundreds of individuals to practically be available for training)
*Friday: 9am-5pm (This is the only day we ask for a sacrifice and encourage individuals to take the day off. We need this day because it is the day we do practicums which helps us know if the student is really grasping what they have learned.)
*Sabbath: Divine Hour and continued training 4pm-8pm
*Sunday: 10am-6pm (This is where we do more practicums, conclude the training, distribute certificates, and give the evangelism charge so the students have an effort where they can practically exercise what they have learned in their respective fields of influence.)
Normally when a speaker is invited to a church, the requirements are an honorarium, housing, travel, and food. For the 7-D course, there is no honorarium required. While travel, housing, and food are requested for the church to cover, the training is not charged to the church. Members are charged a very reasonable fee that covers an entire nuclear family. Honorariums and travel usually make up the bulk of costs to a church for guest speakers and we are grateful we can eliminate one of these through this training.
