"The Christian Ministry Training Course, run by the Yorkshire School of Christian Ministry, is an exciting venture that puts high quality training resources within the grasp of ordinary Christians. The course combines the personal attention of experienced tutors and pastors with a residential element, as well as making available the input of a glittering array of evangelical scholars and teachers via the marvels of modern technology. This is a course well worth considering by anybody who wants to be better equipped for serving the Lord and His church."
The Revd Dr Michael Ovey, Principal,
Oak Hill Theological College
"It is thrilling to see a course like this emerge which is rightly ambitious for the proper pastoring of God's people and clear-eyed about how to make training for that accessible in practice."
Richard Underwood, General Secretary of the FIEC
"The local church is the seedbed for the next generation of gospel workers. CMTC will be a great resource for those who are looking for training that is accessible, practical and that enables them to develop their God-given gifts within the context of their own church. It's just what many Christians and churches are looking for."
Melvin Tinker, Vicar of St John’s Newland, Hull
"There is an increasing need to mobilize the whole of God’s people for effective Christian service. The Christian Ministry Training Course is a valuable means to that honourable end. This is to be highly commended."
Kevin Moore, First Year Student
"I was looking for theological training that would be rooted in the Word, was Christ centred, inspiring, challenging, in-depth and could be applied to everyday situations. The CMTC presents an innovative, "user-friendly" approach to theological training, at an affordable price and in a format which means that I am able to listen and learn from some excellent teachers wherever I am and without having to disrupt normal everyday life."
Tim Fuller, First Year Student
"This is the only course that I could complete without having to turn my family, finances and work life upside down. I am not sure where my future might be so didn't want to sever all ties with secular work at this early stage. Course materials are outstanding. Fascinating and challenging me to help me understand more about my faith. Same day responses by email to any question no matter how trivial is a real blessing."
If you would like to come along to a Taster Day during one of the residential days please contact us for details. This is for those considering joining the CMTC and for church leaders who are considering recommending others to join.
