It is only through worship and education that we can change our lives. Shinbanpo Church exists in part to raise and teach Christian servants and workers for Heaven. From pre-school children to our elderly grandparents, we continue to teach and learn from each other.
For those members coming to church for the first time, this is a group that meets once a week for four weeks to teach the ABCs of Christian faith and life.
▣ Discipleship Training
For those who have finished the new members bible study and look to deepen their relationship with God, there is a group which meets once a week for one and half years. These classes are divided into different levels from beginner, intermediate, to advanced. Furthermore, for those who completed the classes above, there is NLTC(New Life Training Course) for deeper relationship with God in practice.
▣ Ministry Training
After discipleship training, there is a focus group which helps to develop members into ministers of the church. This focus group meets once a week for year and addresses each individual’s talents and calling. This will serve as the first step before serving on behalf of the church.
▣ Mini Mission Courses
twice a year (spring / fall),
there are programs to teach
the biblical basics necessary
for mission work.
The topics covered include:
history of mission work,
current status of mission work,
community and mission work, and first time witnessing.
▣ Teachers School
