Training Center Class of 2017

The Training Center graduates have completed three years of grueling coursework, intensive training and vulnerable discipleship. They have graduated with the knowledge and skills to become godly leaders in their homes and in the body. Many are entrusted with overseeing various ministries at Faith Bible Church, and those and others may be called in the future to be church planters, missionaries, pastors or elders.

“TC was a dichotomy; it had the rigors of an intense and strenuous spiritual boot camp, yet it was my most rewarding life season in Christ. The process deeply founded our Lord’s grace-saturated Gospel into my soul. The rich camaraderie of our leadership and cohort was way beyond my expectations.” — Christopher Francis

“The Training Center was a turning point in my life. It gave me an excellent handle on Scripture, clarity on doctrine and a clear vision as to my role in the Great Commission. TC forced me to work on aspects of my character that were hindering my role as a husband and father. TC is not simply a place to obtain Bible knowledge, it’s a fellowship of godly men, encouraging one another to be their best for the Lord Jesus Christ. I am not a professional pastor, but the training I received has helped in everything I do.” — Eddie Roman

“TC was an amazing experience and benefit for my own soul and future ministry. After a long time, I could experience how it feels to be shepherded and cared for. My heart was refreshed and strengthened for the work of the ministry again.  Not just that, I was privileged to watch and learn in a unique way. I could see what it means, and what it looks like when men are being trained and prepared for the ministry. TC has shaped my views and philosophy of ministry like no other place. I am privileged to have been a part of it.” — Lojza Klepacek
