Welcome!Services − Training

Training

The second area of service is to provide training through workshops (usually for up to 30 people, though I undertake larger speaker events too) and writing assignments.
 

Workshops

Training provides understanding about, motivation for and skills in Christian ministry. I seek to utilise a range of ways in which people can learn effectively to provide an experience that is both memorable and enjoyable.

Workshops can often be conducted in a more general context than consultancy, so groups can benefit from a single event. Apart from UCAN events, I only run workshops at the request of a client. Most take one day but some last half a day and others two to three days.

I am available to run any event, from one evening to a residential conference, for individual churches, local groups, clergy groups (eg. CMD), Bible and theological colleges, and staff of mission agencies.
 

Writing

I also offer training through writing. This lacks the impact of a workshop but can be available to a much wider group. I have prepared validated distance learning modules for three clients and write regular articles for one specialist magazine. I also add new material to this website every other month (covered in the Resources section of this site).
 

Benefits

I seek to offer in workshops and in writing:

  • wide experience and understanding of church and other Christian work
  • a creative mind willing to explore new ideas
  • an ability to communicate clearly on practical issues
  • an infectious enthusiasm for my subject.
