Grace Brethren North American Missions, in cooperation with Grace Theological Seminary, is offering a class on church planting this August. The class will be a weeklong experience in Winona Lake, Indiana, from August 14-18, 2006.
The focus will be on the basic understanding and skills necessary for starting a congregation in most North American cultural contexts. The course takes the student from the individual call to reaching and bringing together a group of 25-27 individuals committed to being a church.
Cost for the course is $1,020 for three-hour course credit or $510 for non-credit participants (books and lodging not included). Spouses are encouraged to come at no extra charge.
Registration deadline is July 17. Reasonable housing is available for participants; contact Ron Boehm (Midwest_ron@mac.com) for more information. For more information, or to register for the course, go to http://web.mac.com/midwest_ron/iWeb/MissionWork/GTS.html
