Minister’s Foundations (BC-101)

About this course

Establishing a strong foundation for a fruitful and enduring life and ministry. "...present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed..." 2 Timothy 2:15

God has a specific plan, purpose, and life assignment for each one. Our journey as ministers of God is one of discovering and faithfully completing God’s assignment for our lives, serving people He has called us to serve, and doing this in a manner that brings glory and honor to His name. In this course we establish the truth of God’s purpose for each one. We discover several important signposts that help recognize God’s purpose. We learn how to receive God’s guidance as we journey through life, And, very importantly, we develop an understanding of principles, standards, and boundaries we must maintain to conduct ourselves in a way that the ministry is without blame.
