Training Leaders Equipped in the Word of God

2 Timothy 2:2

The Church Planting School of Ministry has about 25 men from the different churches of Petra Nicaragua.
Please pray for these men, as they are in training as current and future leaders of the Petra Bible Churches.

The classes have been a huge blessing to my life, and for all the participants. They have allowed us to take time to share with each other, refreshing our souls by God’s Spirit, and deepening our understanding of the Word of God. The Church Planting School of Ministry, PLANTAR, is a wonderful blessing. God has used these classes to empower us, teach us, train us, and disciples us in ministry. It is not just theory, but is helping us grow in our application and implementation of God’s truth in our lives and ministries.

God has been Wonderful and Faithful in allowing the Church Plant School to be a reality in Nicaragua. I have been very blessed in taking part in the teachings of each one of the professors that God has sent, renewing my mind and my heart throughout this time has been very rewarding. PLANTAR has edified and strengthened the leadership of His church.

God has provided us with tools and resources for better comprehension and application of His Word. I more fully understanding how the farthest my words can reach is people’s minds, but His Word through His Spirit, is the only thing that can reach the bottom of the heart and produce change for repentance and salvation.

These classes have been a great blessing for me, because they have equipped me, instructed me, and taught me to better understand the Scriptures. I also thank the Cox family for all their work and service to Christ.

My prayer is that God brings more godly men that delight in serving Him. I am convinced that the work God started, He is going to perfect it each day until His Kingdom is spread out all over Nicaragua. To Him be all the glory!
