“Nuts and Bolts” Aims to Strengthen Ministry Leaders’ Management Skills

News Release

providence_theological_seminary_onlinelogoOTTERBURNE, November 18, 2014 – You see them on the frontline every week, preaching a sermon, running the Sunday school program, leading worship, or any of the other dozens of tasks a church leader may be found doing on a Sunday morning. But when the church clears and Sunday morning is over, these church leaders have a ministry to manage – and for the third straight year, the Nuts & Bolts workshop series is back to help point them in the right direction.

Beginning on February 12, 2015, Providence Theological Seminary, in partnership with Providence’s Buller Centre for Business, will be producing the Nuts & Bolts for Ministries program, a six-session workshop aimed to provide leaders of all types of ministries with basic management training in areas such as budgeting, board relations, human relations, and much more.

The types of leaders who are likely to attend include pastors, church administrators, board leaders, board members executive directors, and program directors, all of whom possess essential spiritual gifts for leading a ministry, but who may not have a lot of experience or training to run the behind-the-scenes work of an entire organization.

This year’s sessions come after two successful years, which saw nearly three dozen ministry leaders across Manitoba attend the six-session workshop, and be a part of a great dialogue to help further the reach and effectiveness of their ministries.

This year’s sessions are again $315 per person, with bursaries available if needed). They run every other Thursday morning from February 12 – April 23, 2015, at the Grace Community Church on the West Winnipeg Perimeter.
