CURRICULUM

Curriculum

The focus of our courses is development of character and ministry skill through a process of action and reflection. The assignments take place in the context of hands-on ministry. Reflection on the ministry experience takes place both privately and in small groups which provide peer mentoring. The courses are designed to deliver learning "just in time," both through assignments, real-life stories and case studies that draw the student emotionally and logically into the practical need for the topic at hand. This process provides the very best learning environment for the adult student.

The eight areas in which a student will gain typical competences are: administering, discipling, evangelizing, lay counseling, leading, pastoring, preaching and teaching.

The Entrust curriculum is designed for college-level students and is part of a learning process which requires trained facilitators.

The following six workbooks may only be purchased if you have completed Entrust training.  Facilitator Training sessions are held throughout the year. To learn more about Entrust's Facilitator Training please click here. You can also view the Women-to-Women Ministry Training calendar.
