The 2017 Ministry Trainee Conference is now over. We will be running it again in January 2018 so please look out for further details. Below, you can see what we did this year to give you an idea of what the conference is like.
Who's it for?
The conference is for Ministry Trainees, Interns and Apprentices, serving in local churches. Trainess come from all over the UK and from all sorts of churches. The cost of attending the conference is £129 if you book before 18th November and £139 after that. Booking closes on the 7th December. We'd love for you to join us!
What's the aim?
The conference is designed to encourage you, equip you with skills for ministry and to help you develop a like-minded peer group. This year we'll be focusing on the importance of prayer in the Christian life and in ministry. In our main sessions, Richard Coekin will help us to understand the Lord’s Prayer and Nigel Stiles teach about the prayer lives of Daniel, Paul and Elijah. And along with great Bible teaching, Ministry Trainees will be supported and coached by experienced gospel workers from around the UK who will lead learning groups composed of 5-6 Ministry Trainees. Each Ministry Trainee will prepare and deliver a short talk from an assigned Bible passage (all of these passages will be prayers from the Bible), after which they will receive constructive feedback. There will be many opportunities to chat with experienced gospel workers and to draw on their wisdom and experience. Naturally, we will also spend time praying together!
