EQUIPPING

You can enroll in the LIVE class or the VIRTUAL class. (LIVE students will receive a link to the VIRTUAL class for makeup classes.) The VIRTUAL link expires in August 2023.

Here is where the rubber hits the road. The Training Track includes three additional classes which show you how to use your Exchanged Life Ministry Handbook as a tool to chart a course for sessions, keep client records, and get additional training on prayer ministry.

Additionally, we will cover characteristics that God works in us for ministry and learn how to respond to common confusing scriptures. Once you have completed everything, you can apply for the internship.

You will receive your Exchanged Life Ministry Handbook at the first training track class.

Everyone is won by one person: be that person!
