“How” matters as much as “what” when it comes to training that transforms lives. Yes, content is key, but it falls flat if learners don’t fully grasp it. We at Entrust work with local Christians to discover locally sensitive and effective approaches to “how” to train leaders in and for the local church. Our friends at HealthyLeaders.com, who, by the way, often feature the writings of our CEO, David Goodman, often hold a closely similar view. Gain greater insight into Entrust’s understanding of instructional design through this 3-part series by HealthyLeaders’ Executive Director Malcolm Webber. (If you have time for only one installment, Part 3 most closely aligns with Entrust’s thinking and methodology; though the series builds the thought exceptionally well.)
Know it or not, as a Christian leader you’ve likely set up your table in the temple grounds, so to speak. How might Jesus respond to your table? Discover Entrust CEO David Goodman’s thoughts on tables in the temple, in this article published recently at healthyleaders.com.

Guess what: in at least one case, the answer involved goats. Click on the link below to read more.

The 12 men, lay pastors from six churches, just recently completed the course . One reason for the slow pace – the young men had many questions and wanted to be sure they understood each point before moving forward. Over these two years, Joseph also trained George, the deacon who assisted him as a facilitator.
This is the third Entrust course Joseph has offered in his region, training facilitators each time. In addition, he’s almost completed Discovering the Treasures of God’s Word under the leadership of Entrust’s Harvey Newton, and is eager to in turn pass that training along to others. Joseph and his well-equipped facilitators, including George, are nearly at the point of meeting Entrust Moldova’s criteria for being considered a church-based training center.
