Look what people had to say about MST 103!

“I was driven out of ministry because I was completely blind to my terrain. I was ineffective at setting boundaries and blind to the traps the enemy was setting for me. I wish I had had this course before I had left and will carry this knowledge with me when I return.”

“You all have a great concept going here – group interactions, intense equipping – it’s like Christmas for our growth!”

“So much wisdom – I will carry these truths with me for all my years – convicting, challanging and encouraging.”

MST-104 Registration is Open!

Our next weekend module offering will be MST-104 – Know Yourself and will held Saturday, March 13th at a location soon to be announced (in the Philadelphia area).

The purpose of MST 104 is for each minister to discover [1] his/her own blindness and triggers and, [2] how to respond by the Spirit of God and not react when triggered.

Know the Terrain- a report

MST 103 went down on Jan. 23 at Eastern University  and was a huge success! A full course of 35 participants (including pastors, missionaries, youth pastors, seminarians, college students, elders, deacons) entered into discussion about ”high ground” in ministry that must be held at all cost.  Boundaries in scheduling, intimacy, and communication were also explored.  Dave Wiedis provided valuable insight into ethical/legal issues and relational snares in ministry.

Each small group brought so much to the table during discussions and together gained new eyes to see and to navigate the difficult terrain that we call ‘ministry’.

MST-102 was amazing! Here’s why…

“Going into MST 102 I had a good idea of what’s God vision for my life was. After completing MST 102 I was able to turn that vision into the specific missions God had for my life, it was amazing!” -Graduating Seminary Student

Check out what Pastor Bate had to say about MST-102…

“I believe ‘IDS’ has come to stay. The concept of ‘survivalism’ in ministry is one that has been ‘under looked’ or ‘over looked’. I believe pastors, missionaries and anyone engaging in any type of work in the ministry needs this. This is not very much about our preaching or church history. . .it is about the trenches, the other side of ministry, the real battle ground. I greatly recommend the Identity School.” (Pastor Arung Bate, Cameroon, Africa).
