The W. E. Crumes Ministerial Training Institute, founded by our current Chief Bishop Rex Waddell, and named after the late Chief Bishop William Edward Crumes, is a nationally organized effort dedicated to spiritual, intellectual and leadership growth. In continuing our great tradition, we will continue to provide exceptional minister ordination training in: General Homiletics (sermon preparation), Hermeneutics (bible interpretation), Church Administration and Church Doctrine. However, we are currently working to expand the W.E. Crumes Institute by adding innovative courses such as Altar Service Training and the 2020 launching of online courses. Registration for these classes is only $60, and are mandatory for those seeking ordination.
A new Module is being added this year, “Leaders Impacting Leaders,” that focuses on Personal Growth, Leadership development and Ministry training. We are offering an introductory Mastermind course, “Developing the Leader Within You,” based on the book “Developing The Leader Within You 2.0” by Dr. John C. Maxwell; being taught by Bishop S. T. Goodlow, a Certified Independent Speaker, Trainer, & Coach with The John Maxwell Team. The first session will be Wednesday, July 10th at 10:50 am. This is being offered to you complimentary. We simply ask that you register with $35.00 for the lunch that’s included with the session. Registration for this session is required as there is limited seating. YOU MUST REGISTER BY JULY 1, 2020
