NEW PASTORS AND MINISTERS WIVES’ COURSE

This course was created unanimously by the Leading Ladies of the Church of God by Faith. The aim is to promote growth and effectiveness in every pastor and minister’s wife.
 
We are excited to report that all of our Leading Ladies are currently enrolled in the course. Why? Because they are solidly convinced that every first lady needs prayerful training and support…including them.
 
The class is designed to equip Pastors’ Wives with biblical and practical knowledge and skill in understanding and ministering to women. This class is also designed to encourage the Pastor’s wife in her personal life as a woman of God and further equip her to be a strong asset to her husband.

GLOBAL MISSIONS PROGRAM

At CTI, the singular purpose for Global Missions is to train missionaries at every age to serve locally, regionally and abroad. To meet that end, the staff at CTI has engaged in a comprehensive study of the best practices among denominational churches. It was concluded without equivocation that much work needs to be done if the COGBF is to rise to a higher level. One of the goals is to make the term “missionary” an acceptable calling across all demographics in the COGBF. When Mother Willie Slater Smith started the Home Mission in 1958, it was primarily staffed with middle to older aged women who worked within their communities to care for the sick and those most in need. Some visited hospitals and prisons and set-up food banks and they truly made an impact in the neighborhoods they served. While these ministries remain extremely important, the Church of God by Faith is seeking a new direction in mission work and CTI is prepared to assist in this process. Read more here. 

CONTINUING EDUCATION MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE COUNCIL

The Executive Council met in Jacksonville and engaged in a comprehensive review of the Pastors and Ministers Continuing Education Program. There were several policy changes that affects older pastors, consecrated women ministers as well as leaders who graduated from CTI. 
 
It is crucially important that each minister or elder read this document carefully and adheres to the policy changes. If you have additional questions, either contact your superintendent or call the CTI Office at 904-777-1027.
