Church Leadership Training in Orissa, India


View Larger Map
A request has come for someone to offer training to church leaders in the Indian state of Orissa.

Topics
Specifically the training requested is in these areas:
* Mission-Understanding and doing the mission of God
* Establishing new churches
* Understanding and enhancing Christian Worship
* Pastoral Care

Timing
There is great flexibility but a suggested window is sometime between 15 November -20 December 2009 (during which time the weather is cooler than usual).

The idea suggested is for an intensive time of training over five days.

If the teacher can stay longer there could be other opportunities arranged in churches prior to or after the training intensive.

Location
This is a training opportunity for a number of people drawn from several churches rather than being seminary based.

It will take place in a residential guest house which has good facilities including AC.

Do let me know if you would like more information or there is a possibility of you being able to serve in this way.

If you cannot serve at this time please pass on this request to others who might be able to serve.
