Training and Development

From the Coach’s Couch

Education is a journey that transforms the heart, soul, mind, to assist people to develop their full potential and being more effective in their lives, whether personal or vocational. Participating in Social Transformation in the world is exhilarating and fulfilling work. But it requires preparation for the various ways you might bring in healing the world, particularly through Religious communities and institutions. While formal academic training has its benefits and is essential for full-time Ministry, many people feel they would rather benefit from hands-on training that focus on specialised fields, at a local level. There is an alternative to traditional full-time Formal training. We provide a blended approach of part-time specialisations, as part of our extended coaching programmes. Training present part-time interactive group sessions, with teachings to be studied at home, and practical applications through tasks and projects that are correlated during face-to-face sessions, which makes learning more exciting and fun. Classes takes on the form of workshop-evenings during the week, or distance education with online support, where your study mentors provide information and support. Certain workshops and exercises is sometimes required for specialisations. The objective is that a participant learn, not about a subject, for example Theology, but the transformative learning environment created through our incubation programmes, assist the learner to integrate spiritual truths into a lifestyle that emanate into a loving, Christ-conscious attitude towards humanity, and an effective Ministry in Society.
