Explanation of Flat-pack Equipping Course
Why “Flat-pack?” Because like the furniture, when you get it home you will need to get it out of the box and build it yourself!
The Flat-pack Equipping course is designed for those who are in York for a limited time, particularly Internationals or anyone seeking short term training.
Flat-pack consists of many short stand-alone courses, designed to fit in with the demands of a busy lifestyle, and to go alongside practical experience gained in the local church. It will has three main streams,
1) School of Maturity – how to be the person we should be
2) School of Ministry – skills such as how to preach, leadership, etc
3) School of Scripture – book overviews and introductions, Christian doctrine, etc.
The aim is to lay a foundation of equipping as quickly as possible, which can be built upon later. Those trained will be able to use what they have learned as they move on to new situations, taking with them materials which will then enable them to train and equip others.
