In partnership with the Robert E. Webber Center, Trinity School for Ministry is pleased to announce a new program for Christian discipleship: Foundations for Christian Ministry. This eight-module training program is designed for adult Christians seeking greater preparation for Christian life and ministry. Originally published as the Christian Foundations Program — a trusted Trinity resource for many years — this curriculum is being completely revised and updated, with several new modules being added. The program is tiered for various levels of training, and may be used by interested lay readers, those preparing for leadership in lay ministry, as well as (in participating dioceses) those pursuing vocational diaconal ministry.
