A lot of people talk about wanting to do ministry, but don’t truly understand ministry. Ministry is something you learn by doing, but need direction from God through the wisdom he has given to others. We offer a chance for this principal to be applied.
Calvary Chapel in Central Maine, has been a proven training ground for ministry. Men and women who have sat under the teaching of Ken Graves have gone out to establish ministries, that evidence the blessing of God. It’s more than just ministry, it’s discipleship. That’s why we offer the School of Ministry. The purpose of this school is to train men and women to be servants, developing needed tools so they may become effective in ministry. The educational style that occurs at Calvary more closely follows the process of discipleship that Jesus used with his disciples. Jesus spent time with the disciples and put them in situations where they had to reproduce the things He was teaching them. The disciples absorbed what He taught. They were at the center of the action. The teaching was totally integrated with real life. They watched His ministry and followed His example.
The School of Ministry focuses on teaching ministry skills through the participation in the ministry at Calvary Chapel: Seven Oaks Training Center for men and Blessed Hope for women. Seven Oaks and Blessed Hope are residential discipleship programs working with men and women having life controlling problems who are determined to find a way out of their bondage.
We also incorporate Bible College classes as well as being feed the Word during our services and teaching the word to the students in our residential discipleship programs, which produce such a group of men and women so deeply committed to the Lord and to growing in their service for Him, like those who have graduated from the School of Ministry.
Sharing life together in Christ Jesus creates an exciting learning environment.
