Has our awesome God called you into an area of ministry, and you know it?

The harvest field is ripe and needs workers, but not everyone who is "called" has the "traditional" qualifications, or ability to go through a formal education and seminary program to get into ministry. Has our God provided for them? Yes! The Sarah Family Ministries Ministerial Training Center is a ministerial resource center, assisting saints desiring to answer the call to ministry as teachers, missionaries, prophets, evangelists, and pastors.

The Ministerial Training Center offers an "alternative process" to Bible seminary training for ministry. We work with you, train you, equip you, credential you and send you out to minister as God directs. But it doesn't stop there. We provide you with prayer cover, continuing education, fellowship with other saints in ministry, pastoral care, and accountability.

Depending on where you are on your walk with God, we will certify you on one of four levels, and increase your certification as your training, maturity, and experience grows.

Applicants are encouraged to meet with SFM staff to talk about where and how God has been calling and using you in ministry. Based on that conversation, you may be encouraged to enter the Ministerial Training and Credentialing program.

Qualifications: Born-again, Spirit-filled, 18 years of age or older.

Class topics for the Ministerial Training and Credentialing: What is your vision for ministry?, Christian Leadership, The Business of Ministry, Church Government Overview, What does it mean to be a Minister of the Gospel, Ethics and Standards of Ministry.

All applicants for the Ministerial Training must attend the Orientation Class and will be expected to attend all class sessions.

Ephesians 2:10
For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. NIV
