Understanding Men's Ministry course available
Registration is open for the November 16-17 “Understanding Men's Ministry” training course to be held in the Howard Conference Room the United Methodist Center at Simpsonwood, sponsored by the United Methodist Men of North Georgia and the General Commission on United Methodist Men.
The course is designed specifically to help churches in their ministry to their people, particularly men. Although ministry to men is emphasized in this course, its fundamental model works for growth in Christ, male or female. The strong emphasis on men in the course is due to the great need in our churches for men to learn how to begin and continue a faith journey with Christ, to become better fathers, husbands, and, eventually, lead others into that faith journey. The highest impact is realized when the pastor and the men’s ministry leaders in the church attend together.
This is a 12-contact-hour course that counts as an Advanced Lay Speaking course toward becoming a Certified Lay Speaker. This course is required for those pursuing a Men’s Ministry Specialist Certification. Prerequisite is to read the book No Man Left Behind by Patrick Morley, David Delk and Brett Clemmer from Man in Mirror.
Training limited to the first 40 students who sign up. The course will be taught by Jim Boesch and Bud Sears. Jim is a deployed staff member for the General Commission on United Methodist Men and helps to teach training to men on how to train. Bud Sears is the President, United Methodist Men of the North Georgia Conference. Both Jim and Bud are Certified Men’s Ministry Specialist.
Cost is $100 before Oct. 11, and $120 after. To register, visit www.ngcumm.org.
