School of Ministry Development ( CHR 241 )

Basic Leadership School is a three years program where staff has to undergo a three years training. It is a process of discipling staff through Servant Leadership during the first year, developing their Spiritual Leadership in the Second year and Releasing to the different ministries according to their giftings and calling. They would receive teachings and outreach as an application to what they have learned for three consecutive years. Each staff will choose their mentor that served as their accountability and would help them in their walk with God. They would have six weeks of lecture and two weeks of outreach as part of their staff development every year. In the first year of the BLS right after their lecture and outreach the staff will be called the support staff that means that they would support whatever ministries the base have as a practical application. In the second year they will be ask to pray to whatever ministries they would like to be involve with. In the third year they will be released to whatever ministries God has placed in their heart.
