Pastors and Christian Leaders Seminars

Informed and empowered Christian leaders and pastors are more effective, influential, fruitful and successful in God's eyes. These seminars address a variety of biblical themes that will inform and empower for that success. If you are a Christian leader, use these materials to edify, encourage, and refresh yourself as well as your fellow ministers.

Missiological Materials

These academic and professional materials are resources for Christian missionaries. They will be particularly valuable to those who work in cross-cultural ministry.

Christian Marriage and Family Seminars

These seminars are for married people, those who are preparing for marriage, and for parents. May the Lord make our marriages into arenas for personal growth and biblical development. May He also make our families safe and happy havens in which our children receive the affirmation and training they need to grow up to become confident and obedient believers.

Lessons For Leaders From David

Lessons For Leaders From David - This series of 75 lessons from the life of David (I Samuel 16 through I Kings 2: 11) looks closely at aspects of David's life and public service that will be of help to Christian leaders in today's world. God has been developing leaders since long before the present generation took interest in Leadership Development and Empowerment. These lessons are used when training pastors and are designed particularly for Christian leaders. I am indebted to Mathew Henry whose materials I researched as part of the preparation of these lessons.
