SOPAS "REBOOT" LAUNCHES FALL 2015

Through a strategic partnership with Multiplication Network Ministries (MNM), the Center for Biblical Leadership's School of Practical and Advanced Studies (SOPAS) will begin providing two brand new courses-Becoming A Church of Impact! and Planting Healthy Churches-in the fall of 2015. These two courses are the first of thirty new courses currently being developed for future offerings to nations, regions, and states. Some of the key benefits of these new train gins, include:

Field Development Team
A team of twenty-two field leaders from all over the world have joined forces with CBL to expand and develop this new curriculum for SOPAS. In this next phase of SOPAS the courses will be designed to equip and inform pastors, leaders, and members for effective ministry.

Over 30 NEW Courses
More than 30 new courses are being developed and taught in SOPAS. They offer practical and relevant equipping in six areas:

Local Church Ministry
Leadership
Pentecostal Formation
Spiritual Formation
Bible/Theology/History
Church of God of Prophecy Formation

Global Instructional Team
CBL has been working with General Presbyters and National/Regional/State Overseers to identify and train skilled instructors who will be a part of a global instructional team to teach the courses throughout the world. This weekend will be your opportunity to be introduced to several of our courses and be trained to be a trainer in the courses offered through our partnership with Multiplication Network Ministries.

Other New Courses
Other new courses will be ready in Fall 2015, including:
How to Become a Better Preacher
Evangelism
Our Church: A Place Where Children and Families Flourish
Youth Ministry: Discovering Their Value and Potential
Salvation: Its Meaning and Application
Sanctification: The Continual Pursuit of the Holy God
The Person and Work of the Holy Spirit

Preview Weekend
The launch of the new SOPAS will begin with a special preview weekend for overseers and their guests, being held in November at the Camp Boothe Campground and featuring instruction from Dr. John Wagenveld, founder and president of Multiplication Network Ministries. During this preview weekend, those in attendance will not only have the opportunity to enjoy teaching from Dr. Wagenveld, but will also be trained to share the material with ministry in their area.

Be watching future editions of Connections to learn more about the all new SOPAS and when it will be coming to your area!

Convention News


Hello
Pastor L.V Jones
I would like to thank you again for inviting me to the Convention!!! I was very grateful and overwhelmed standing in a room filled with esteemed men and women, for Proverbs 18:16 says: A man's gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men. :). Thank you again for believing in and I hope to see you again soon!!!!

P.S. Sorry, I had to leave so soon and didn't get the chance to meet some of the other members, I had to play at an 11:00 a.m. Youth Day Anniversary :) but if you will, refer them to my website at www.piamistry.com  Thanks :)
