I am excited to announce that we will be starting a class through the Contenders Discipleship Initiative (CDI) on October 1st. CDI is a tuition-paid Bible training program that is the equivalent of a two-year Bible College education. While the program is geared toward those desiring to enter ministry (and specifically ministry with Village Missions), it is also a tremendous opportunity for anyone who wants to grow in their faith and knowledge of God and the Bible. The first class is “Bibliology and How to Study the Bible”, which lays the critical foundation necessary for effective and correct study and interpretation of God’s Word.
You can find more detailed information about CDI at their website or by talking with Pastor Tim.
My name is Rev. James Lincoln. I have pastored an EFCA country church, Hope Fellowship Church on Ladd Hill near Wilsonville, OR for the last 17 years. I plan to retire in December and we are attempting to discern God’s direction for our fellowship when I do. Hope is a small fellowship of about 30 attenders, mostly grey heads. A member suggested that we contact VM for some help. Please contact me at James Lincoln firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks.
