Our ministry labs are an experiential learning experience where pastors and ministry leaders can learn and master key skills and tasks of their respective ministries. It is hands-on, step-by-step instruction for leaders. We don’t just want them inspired, we want them equipped to do the work of ministry.


The labs are structured to provide clarity for the participants and tangible outcomes.  Participants identify a specific goal that they must achieve within the time period of the lab. They will spend the allotted time learning what they need through a combination of lectures and live demonstrations. They will then participate in group activities that will give them the opportunity to apply what they have learned so they can experience great outcomes with their specific tasks within their context of ministry.
