I have had the opportunity to take over a dozen classes with the Battles. Because of their classes, I am a better leader.
God has gifted the Battles to teach, train, and develop leaders. Their deep knowledge and passion for ministry allows them the grace to make their classes meaningful, practical, and engaging.
Although, I had been teaching the gospel for 13 years and had been a leader of an urban school for four years before taking a single class with the Battles, I finally discovered, with clarity, my God given gifts and how to use them to positively to impact the areas in which I serve.
I learned the foundations of faith, how to effectively equip others, how to serve others, how to stand in faith, and how to trust that I am hearing Holy Spirit’s direction. I learned practical ministry techniques that are steeped in love so that no one is offended or hurt under my leadership.
I believe their secret sauce and what makes them different from any other institute is that not only do they love what they do and love God’s people, they give the what and the how of ministry. They give practical, step by step directions and examples of how to minister and lead, and most importantly, they give space to practice and receive feedback.
I am a better teacher, minister and leader because of their classes. It doesn’t matter if you are just beginning ministry or have been in ministry for years, if you dare to invest in yourself and enroll in the Equipping Ministry Training Institute, you and your ministry will grow beyond what you ever could have imagined.
