Importance of Ministry Training

As a health care professional there are several expectations that society has for me. The first expectation is that I have been trained to handle patient's medical needs. This includes graduating from a nursing school and receiving a license saying that I am able to provide safe medical care. The second expectation is that I have the character, integrity and compassion to care for those that are not able to care for themselves.

Prior to coming to The Well Discipleship School I had little to no understanding of what it takes to be a ministry leader. Just like my nursing training I have learned that without proper training in ministry lives could be at stake. In health care the human body including the mind and emotions are the main focus. In ministry the person as a whole including the body, the soul and the spirit are in one's hand. It is truly life or death. As a ministry ledger one can lead someone into hell or into heaven. When one values something one studies and handles the valued item with care. As a nurse it would be careless of me not to study and to learn that I possibly can about how to take care of my patients. The same goes with ministry training. The handling of souls is not a light thing. Each person that one is leading is a precious person in God's eyes. As a leader I have been given the responsibility to care for that soul. Ephesians 4:11, 12 (KJV) states (11) And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; (12) For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.

I thank God for The Well Discipleship school which is equipping me to be a ministry leader through prayer, hands on training, character building and life skills. It is my responsibility to be properly training to handle souls.If you would like to assist me financially in my ministry training please see the Paypal link located below.

The Well Discipleship Training School has also taught me not to bury my talents. Therefore I not only have a talent for nursing but also in crocheting blankets. Blankets are not only warm but also make great keepsake gifts. If you are interested in purchasing one of my Candanket Blankets please type send me a brochure in the comment section of the post.
