“Training Them Up & Sending Them Out”
The Lord spoke to Pastor Winston some years ago and said “train them up and send them out,” and for more than two decades the Living Word Bible Training Center has faithfully fulfilled this mandate. Today, the Training Center equips and prepares Christians to perform the work of the ministry. The center has two primary components: The School of Ministry and Missions and the Bible Training Classes.
The School of Ministry and Missions (SOMM) is a nine-month ministerial training program for those called to one of the five-fold ministry offices as outlined in Ephesians 4:11-12. The Ministry School trains ministers and missionaries to use their faith to build supernatural, ministries of excellence – ministries like Living Word Christian Center and those in the New Testament, which are characterized by explosive growth and full of signs and wonders.
Both ministers currently serving in established ministries and those just beginning to pursue their ministry call have attended the school. They knew the Lord was calling them to learn something more. Through this program, students learn how to operate Kingdom principles, break through natural limitations, and take their faith walk to the next level. Leadership, vision, church planting, prayer, faith, and signs and wonders are just a few of the subjects covered during our nine-month program.
Bible Training Classes are offered each quarter to train, disciple and empower Believers to live victoriously in every area of their lives. Classes are currently offered in Forest Park and cover a variety of topics including:
- Introduction to the Bible (video)
- Holy Spirit
- Christ the Healer
- The Book of Galatians
- New Creation Realities
- New Testament Survey
- Demons, Deliverance and Angels
- Book of Proverbs
- How to Study the Bible
- Effective Leadership
Every quarter testimonials of healing, deliverance and transformation abound as students commit themselves to these eight-and ten-week Bible studies.
