DESTINY Ministry Training School: Hands-on & Practical

  • Ever dream of earning your degree, but couldn’t afford to ‘go away’ to college? Now you can earn a degree, through courses taught right at your own church. That’s right. Your church can start a campus, and help members earn their degrees by attending classes only one night per week.
  • You can also use our courses to enhance/ train aspiring leaders to help do the work of God. How? Each of our courses are designed to provide excellence in training for students in Bible Study classes, or small group settings.
  • Now you can advance yourself, and become prepared to accomplish something great for God. Not sure where to start? Thanks to a hands-on approach to leader training, we are able to show leaders how important they are to the flock, what their role is intended to be, and how to minister effectively to the body of Christ.
  • DESTINY Ministry Training School: We seek to impact leaders through hands-on, practical training.  We teach believers how to become leaders. And as leaders, we will help you to see needs more clearly; meet needs more efficiently, and represent Christ more faithfully in everything they do. Leader training concentrates on “reaching lives with passion, changing lives with power, and living life with purpose.”

Destiny: USA & International

August 12th, 2010 by Admin No comments »

At Destiny Ministry Training School we seek to impact leaders through Biblical Training:  We teach leaders to see needs more clearly, to meet needs more efficiently, and to represent Christ well in all they do.

Ministry training is a worldwide (universal) need. Jesus told His disciples, “The harvest is ripe, but the laborers are few.” Thankfully, Jesus didn’t just identify problems, and leave us wondering how to solve them. He showed us how to solve the problem. “Pray therefore, the Lord of the harvest, that He will send forth laborers into the harvest.” The answer to this problem is the same today, as it was then. We need more leaders and workers trained / equipped, if we are going to fulfill the Lord’s call to “make disciples of all nations.

We will help you establish a local campus in your church or community throughout the USA, or in nations around the world. Leader training will concentrate on “reaching lives with passion, changing lives with power, and living life with purpose.”

DMTS Helps Train Believers for Ministry

August 11th, 2010 by Admin No comments »

Practical Ministry

Practical Ministry, offers practical, hands-on help for training leaders, and the resources needed to train believers, and existing leaders, to do the work of the Lord. Whether you are an existing leader, pastor, or potential leader, we believe Practical Ministry will help you do ministry more effectively.

Although Practical Ministry is used extensively in the Destiny Ministry Training School, it is designed for use in group, Church and individual studies. We recommend purchasing a Study Guide for even better results.

Did you know? Polls show the average church leader feels inadequately trained to successfully fulfill the duties they have been given. Studies also have found a lack of training to be one of the leading causes of burn-out with leaders on every level of ministry.

The hands-on approach in Practical Ministry will help you prepare new believers for service, and help existing leaders do it more effectively.

Practical Ministry includes the following sections:

  • Prepared to Serve: training the heart, discovering God’s call
  • Roadmap to Success: learning what to avoid, as well as, what to do, to be successful.
  • Team Ministry: discover the secret to multiplying the church.
  • Keys to Successful Ministry: helping to develop emerging leaders among you.

Want to learn more about starting a Ministry Training School? Visit our website: DestinyMinistryTraining.com, or email Dr. Tom: Destinyministry@gmail.com.

Throughout the Gospels, Jesus’ own attitude toward Servanthood is revealed. Not only does He appreciate hard working people who are not afraid to get a little dirty, but the truth of the matter is, that our Lord – the God of heaven – actually embraces Servanthood in a real and personal way. So much so, in fact, that He forever links Himself, and His purpose for coming to earth, with the common work of servants.

In all we do, as servant-leaders for Christ, we are called to serve well. Practical Ministry will give you a clear, easy-to-follow roadmap for successful leadership.

Practical Ministry is now available on this website, and through Amazon.com.

Ministry Training Schools – Surprising Benefits

August 10th, 2010 by TomCannon No comments »

Did you know there are additional benefits people, churches, and even the world will enjoy from churches establishing Ministry Training Schools in their community.

1. Evangelism: Bet you never thought of Ministry Training Schools as evangelistic outreach ministries. But they’re actually one of the most effective ways of reaching this (and future) generations for the Lord. How? Consider an example from SE Asia: in SE Asia, a Ministry Training School graduates 30-50 new ministers every summer. Upon graduation, the leaders promptly take their grads into the mountains of several surrounding nations, and evangelize (near and distant) villages. After holding special meetings for several days, villages experience a powerful move of God, and most (of not all) villagers gets saved. Once a village is won for Christ, they leave one of their new graduates as the pastor of that village for the rest of his or her life.

They repeat this process all summer long, until the entire team is sown into ministry. They have already planted several hundred churches, and are seeing revival break out out all over SE Asia.

Now, consider how many thousands of people are being saved annually, as a result of just one Ministry Training School. When you multiply that effect all over the world, the fruit they bear for the kingdom is amazing.

2. Stabilize the Move of God. Years ago, when Africa was first being evangelized, some of the missionaries insisted on planting regional Ministry Training Schools as soon as people accepted Christ. Those who established Ministry Training Centers saw the churches in the region become stable, as they were firmly planted in the Word, and those churches/ movements that begun in the 1940’s and 50’s are still going strong, and have stayed true to the Lord all these years.

Start A DESTINY Resource Center

July 14th, 2010 by Admin No comments »

For more information on starting a Destiny Ministry Training School Resource Center in your church, or community, please email Dr. Tom Cannon at: Destinyministry@gmail.com.

We have campuses in cities throughout the USA, and have been asked to plant campuses in several nations already. We are passionate about Ministry Training Schools, because they help equip believers to do the work of God – and that translates into stronger, healthier, growing churches, and more souls being won for Christ, as people discover their giftings, and begin walking in them.

If you’re tired of doing the work alone, or with too few, or poorly trained team members, now is the time to take the easy (1-2-3) steps to change the status quo, and get the help you need, to do ‘the greatest work of all.’
