Parakaleo Training

Do you know a ministry spouse who could use four days of training, encouragement, and gospelicious grace? Tell her that Parakaleo’s 2018 training schedule is now posted at Parakaleo offers three training retreats: Basic, Alongside Coaching, and Leadership. 

Ever feel like the gospel more “head” than “heart” in your life? Basic training helps women take the truth of the gospel to their own hearts, and uses practical, visual tools to make theological truths easily accessible during moments of crisis and challenge. Basic retreats are offered in January, March, April, September, and October 2018.

If you’ve ever wondered how to counsel a friend or church member, sign up for Alongside Coaching. This training teaches gospel dynamics for one-on-one conversations, and enhances gospel fluency and agility. Coaching can help others see themselves, their situations, and their savior (s), inviting them to step forward in faith. Alongside Coaching will be offered in February in Orlando.

Interested in leading a Parakaleo network or becoming a certified trainer? Or learning more skills to lead a small group in your church? The Leadership intensive retreat teaches gospel dynamics to people who want to create an environment where the gospel is not just spoken but experienced.

Going to the MNA Church Planters Training Conference in February? Parakaleo is offering two workshops at this event.

Finally, Parakaleo also offers six-week online cohort groups on various topics, including A Gospel Lens Look at Grief and Trauma and A Gospel Lens Look at Developing Cultural Intelligence.
