Practical Training for Christian Leaders

Taking on a leadership role in Christian ministry is never easy. Whether you are leading a small group, teaching a Sunday school class, serving as a missionary, or pastoring a church… establishing deep roots in God’s Word is essential to serving effectively and glorifying the Lord.

Open the Bible for Leaders is a free, unique, video-based training platform carefully designed to equip leaders of all sorts with a solid Biblical foundation & practical, actionable guidance for establishing fruitful gospel ministry for the long haul. In addition, leaders who’ve participated say that it has given them inspiration for their walk with God and refreshment when they’ve grown weary.
