The Strategic Training and Equipping Center

“Helping churches raise up leaders for Christian service”

“Dedicated to the development of Christian leaders for the local church and the advancement of New Testament Christianity.”

Introduction

Recognizing the present need for competent, theologically trained leaders at the local church level, our program is designed to provide a strategic pathway for leaders and emerging leaders to grow in their knowledge of the Bible.

We believe the local church will be a prevailing church only if its leaders are equipped to lead well. We have created a two-year, part-time program which will direct the student in Biblical knowledge and sound doctrine combined with a practical ministry component designed to sharpen leadership skills.

Our program was developed to meet the educational needs of elders, deacons, teachers, ministers and potential leaders in Christian churches. The program consists of eight core courses to be completed over a two-year period through a program of home study and classroom participation. The core course load is supplemented by quarterly seminars led by some of the very best practitioners. Current lecturers include Dr. Roy Lawson, Dr. Johnny Pressley, Rick Rusaw, Dr. Bob Russell, and Dave Smith.

Mission and Goals

Impact Canada’s Training and Equipping Center prepares men and women for Christian leadership in the local church. Our purpose is to train men and women to become competent, committed, mature leaders in the church of Jesus Christ.

Students who complete our program should:

  • Show progress in Christian formation.

Students are encouraged and equipped to develop a mature love for God, commitment to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, and awareness of the Holy Spirit in the life of the church.

  1. Be better able to understand the Christian faith as it has been revealed in Scripture.

  2. Develop an appreciation for our Restoration Movement heritage, with its concern for the restoration of the church to the spiritual standards of the New Testament.

  3. Learn to communicate the Christian faith to others.

  4. Acquire skills in the various practices of ministry and mission, and deploy those ministry skills in their local church.
