Scholarships are available. The board of the Church Leadership Training Foundation is so enthusiastic about helping Christians and churches who want training but are having difficulties in getting the finances to do it. They have added more money to our scholarship fund.
We are offering scholarships for half the registration fee for those who need help. If you are at that place, needing some help financially to attend a training event, please contact Connectional Ministries and the scholarship is available until the funds run out.
