CURRICULUM

Curriculum

The focus of our courses, or modules, is the maturity of character and ministry skills through the study of God’s Word, in-depth relationships, and guided practice sessions. Workbooks provide content and assignments to complete prior to the trainings. Trainings involve facilitated discussions on the workbook and real-life ministry experiences based on the best practices of adult learning. Skills are practiced during the training with modeling, coaching, doing, followed by helpful feedback for continued growth in a supportive environment. Each training is tailored to the specific participants attending that module. The modules below build on one another in content and skill development.

The Entrust curriculum is designed for college-level students and is part of a learning process that requires trained facilitators.

The following six workbooks may only be purchased as a part of an Entrust training. 

Entrust is a training organization with a high value on modeling facilitated learning. We do this in and through our trainings. We do not primarily publish books and materials but rather train leaders who can then train other leaders. Therefore, our core curriculum is only available as part of one of our trainings.

Facilitator Training sessions are held throughout the year. To learn more about Entrust's Facilitator Training please click here. To register for other trainings, see the Women-to-Women Ministry Training calendar click here.

Becoming a Man of Understanding

This course is designed to help men grow in their understanding of God and of themselves. It examines truths that are essential to understanding who we are – such as the damage caused in every human being due to the Fall, the scope of our salvation through Jesus Christ, the new identity we have in Christ, and the resources God has given us to transform us more and more into the image of his Son. As our own relationship with God grows deeper, we begin to see real change taking place in us, and God often uses us to help and encourage others in their walk with God.
