Ministry Grid Training Demo Now Available
I have 10 openings for pastors to join our demo group using Ministry Grid, the online training resource from LifeWay. With more than 3,000 exclusive training videos you can’t get anywhere else, Ministry Grid provides training by leading ministry experts for every ministry area from the parking lot to the pulpit.

This is just a demo, and only available to the first 10 pastors who contact me to access it. Once we see the viability for our churches, we will continue our negotiations with LifeWay to attempt to secure a permanent subscription. Or, if you, as a pastor, see the viability, you can purchase a subscription for your church.

Contact me if you are interested in utilizing this training source. This is part of our effort to provide better training opportunities for our churches.

It’s a joy and honor to serve you!
