You then, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others.
We’re excited about future gospel-workers…
We believe this is God’s great plan for gospel growth. Paul pleads with Timothy to entrust the gospel “to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others”. Titus is to ensure that older men & women model their life and doctrine to those younger, for the sake of the gospel (Titus 2:1-10).
Where will tomorrow’s preachers, church-planters, missionaries, teachers & evangelists come from if not today’s young men and women?
An MTS Apprenticeship is two years of on-the-job training based within a church or a specialist ministry team. Apprenticeships are centred on prayer, Bible study and practical ministry. The essence of MTS is not formal instruction but learning through active participation. Two years provides enough time for MTS Apprentices to establish ministries and learn from success and failure.
There is no right way of serving in a ministry apprenticeship. It will involve learning from God’s word and teaching it to others, but how this will be done will vary from apprentice to apprentice.
Lakeshore Church partners with the Ministry Training Strategy to provide MTS Apprenticeships at our church.
An opportunity is currently available for an MTS apprentice at Lakeshore Church in 2017. Contact Bill for more information.
Pray for us!
We’d love you to join us in praying for our apprentices and their ministry while training and their future gospel work.
