The apostle Paul commanded young Timothy, “Think over what I say…” (2 Tim 1:7) as he gave his final words of encouragement to this church leader. Ministry requires mental work. Jesus called each believer to love the Lord with “all your mind” (Luke 10:27).

Join us on March 13 for seminary-quality training. Whether you already have a seminary degree or no biblical training at all, come experience a day to be challenged and refreshed spiritually and intellectually!
