Lamp Program

Leaders advancing in Ministry Program {LAMP} has been developed out of two convictions. First, some people aware of the call of God to ministry prefer homebased, self-paced training rather than formal ministerial training. Second, men and women called of God to lay ministry within the context of the local church need training to better live out that call. LAMP has been developed primarily to meet those needs.

The leadership development process of LAMP involves three levels.

1. Level 100 consists of basic discipleship materials organized around the theme pf Personal Leadership Development.

2. Level 200 is designed to develop a working knowledge of the Scripture as well as an overview of basic theology and church history.

3. Level 300 is particularly designed to be completed by those who are pursing ordination to pastoral ministry without pursing a religious studies degree. This section also requires ministry projects to coincide with many of the courses being studied in Pastoral Leadership Development. This section provides a variety of options for the student as that each student in consulatioin with his/her mentor may craft a well-rounded byt personally tailored progam of the studyt.
